FRIENDS OF ELIZABETH BRIDGE RESERVE
Yarra Hills Secondary College Working Bee March 2011
The Year 9 students at Yarra Hills Secondary College spent a number of periods spreading several truck loads of mulch in preparation for planting out over 300 plants in the Reserve later in the year. The result has been very well commented upon by visitors and regulars that use the Reserve.
All photos of the students at work were taken by Maddie.
