Carrara Floodplain Prep for Community Planting

Back in September of last year Regen Australia was commissioned by the City of Gold Coast to prepare a site at the Carrara Floodplain for a council run community planting event. 

Utilising our Razorback team the site was cleared using Razorback mowers and other equipment to tidy up the area ready for participants from the Carrara Floodplain Landcare Group to take part in planting native plant species. 400 native trees and sedges were planted in the wetlands.

The Carrara Floodplain Landcare Group was established in 2014 and is partnered with the Natural Areas Management Unit under the Beaches to Bushland Volunteer Landcare Program. The group assists with the restoration of Council-managed Carrara Floodplain Park.

If you’d like to see images of the work they did on the planting day please check out their Facebook page at @carraralandcare .

Once plants are established the group continues to help protect and maintain the site by learning to identify and control weeds, identifying and encouraging native species which encourages both community involvement and ownership while also providing learning opportunities in ecological restoration.

If you’d like to take part in in a community landcare group we encourage you to contact our friends over at the Natural Areas Management Unit by emailing them at naturallyGC@goldcoast.qld.gov.au or by phoning them on (07) 5581 1537 or join one of the Bushcare groups run by gecko.org.au
