Greg Gorfine Pulling out Invasive Species demonstrating A Rocha Australia's commitment to creation care

Weeding out the invasives in Glenaroua, VIC

During November and December, Victorian members of A Rocha Australia participated in some weed removal at Cassinia Environmental’s Glenarou property near Broadford about an hour and a half north of Melbourne. Here is a snippet from one of our members about the day:

Our task was to dig out the South African Weed Orchid (Disa bracteata), a highly invasive species that produces a huge number of seeds and compromises the growth of native plants such as lillies and other orchids.

Cool but sunny weather made for ideal conditions so we spread out across a sloping field and soon were meeting our ‘quotas’! It was hard work but an enjoyable day knowing that we were contributing to the rejuvenation of this piece of land.
