After the great success we had with our last crowd funding project through PledgeMe, we have decided to raise some more funds which will enable us to continue on with new and existing projects for the 'Blue Hole' rest area.

Since the area is located on Public Land, it receives little to no maintenance from the local council or doc, and with so many events and and people making use of this place (fishers, campers, families, festivals etc) it really needs to be looked after if it is to survive. As a small group of locals and community-minded individuals, we have taken it upon ourselves over the last few years, to help preserve this magical piece of land for generations to come, and hopefully stimulate others into action!

This year in September for the Spring Equinox, we will hold a weekend long working bee, where people can come together and we can look at the following aspects....

 

- Planting more native trees

- Planting fruit and nut trees

- Sowing grass seed (as the ground within much of the rest area has become muddy and unusable over the past few years, due to cars and skids)

- Creation of signs (these will cover aspects such as outlining the dangers of spreading didymo in the area, as well as common courtesies when using the rest area)

- Digging a new hole for the composting toilet and moving the entire structure (if we have enough resources and people to do this, otherwise the existing hole will just be dug out and cleared)

- Touching up the toilet (new seat and shelf)

- Building another new firepit (as multiple families and fisherman are usually there at the same time)

- Clearing more scrub and making way for more parking spaces

- Fixing the stairs (which took us a day and a half to build, but unfortunately got slightly destroyed by severe flooding)

- Hauling away the last of the junk that has accumulated over the years

 

Our target once again is a megre amount, at $520. This will allow us to purchase the resources we need, such as petrol (scrub cutters, chainsaws, generator, cars etc), donations for plants, trailer hire, mortar, timber, paint, nails etc.

Hopefully we can work together again in providing this valuable community service :)
