> Minders of Tuggeranong Homestead (Inc) a founding member of the
> Southern ACT Catchment Group, is a small but active and very
> committed group of volunteers in the Tuggeranong Valley. Since our
> formation in 1992 we have been dedicated to protecting, preserving
> and enhancing the natural and historic environment of this heritage
> listed property.
> We are very keen to widen our active membership, and we invite
> people in the district to consider joining us in our work. Some of
> the projects we are involved in:
> Restoring biodiversity to the old Tuggeranong Creek line and the
> historic orchard by planting of native grasses and trees
> Caring for a small area of remnant yellow box grassy woodland
> Protecting remaining historic trees on the property, including the
> orchard, and caring for a nineteenth century garden we re-established
> Promoting sustainable water use on the property through the
> installation of water tanks (after MOTH’s success in obtaining a
> Commonwealth Government Community Water Grant)
> Running a public program of cultural/educational events on the
> property, events which include exhibitions, talks, school tours,
> musical recitals and family reunions. 2009 will see us collaborating
> with the Tuggeranong Arts Centre on a digital archive project called
> ‘Tales of Tuggeranong’.
> We welcome any interested members of the public to join our group,
> and especially those who are willing to lend an active hand at the
> property as often as you can spare the time at weekdays or weekends.
