Movie Stars

Did you watch us on Gardening Australia on Saturday, 27th July?  We did!  We watched us heaps!

Great to see some effective community work profiled nationally.  Well done everyone.  Topped off the very next day by another tree planting frenzy beside the Rifle Club!

Rifle Club Mural and Working Bees for July and August 2013

The Stationeers have been busy this year with the Northcote Rifle Club in commissioning the mural you see on the side of the club building. The Stationeers and Rifle Club are grateful recipients of a community grant from the Darebin City Council (DCC) for the mural and associated plantings.

The Rifle Club called for expressions of interest from community artists under advice from DCC and settled on Graffic Creative on reviewing their collective's portfolio of similar work.  Jimmy B led a team of artists in designing, installing and painting the "nature and wildlife" themed mural, incorporating elements of street art to more traditional artistic elements.

Looking good.

The next stage is a community planting day on Sunday 28th July from 10 am to about 2 pm. We will be planting mature trees next to the Rifle Club and the new mural.

If you are interested please meet at the front of the Rifle Club and bring gloves and any of the following tools:
  • Shovel or spade
  • Wheelbarrow
  • Mattock
  • Crow bar
Refreshments will be provided

FUTURE WORKING BEE: Sunday 25th August

Activities: general maintenance of previous planted areas
