We just completed another very pleasant weekend at Moonambel. The dam was full and some areas of the hill were still very green for this time of year. A lot of time was spent going on walks and surveying the conditions on the hill. One highlight was the discovery of our first known native orchids on the land, a pair of Donkey Orchids about 30 meters apart on the western slope to the dam flat.
One member was on a mission this weekend and beavered away all Saturday rebuilding the internal structure of the shed’s west wall which had been severely damaged a few years ago by termites. Well done Puck.
Our AGM took place on the Saturday arvo, we coasted through the formalities and then discussed some exciting plans for the next year or two, more info to come. Also there have been minimal changes to the committee.
We have had a poor response to our plea for 50 dollar donations. We know people are busy and it is easy to forget such things but please keep it in mind.
If anyone has photos of the weekend that they would like to put on the site please email them to me. I’m sure someone has a better photo of the orchards than the one I took.
