Gardening Australia episode 21 2020
Costa heads to northern Sydney’s seaside suburbs to join a crew working to conserve a critical patch of coastal vegetation.Behind the sand dunes of Dee Why in Sydney’s northern beaches is a stunning wetland that is a haven for birds.
Surrounded by surburbia, there is a constant threat of weeds that can overrun the native vegetation, but a team of people from Bushlink, which provides employment for people with an intellectual disability, is helping to keep the place weed-free.
Bushlink manager Diane McLane says there are 10 working teams plus a training program to build bush-care skills. The team hand-weeds and replants native species. Supervisor Pic Andrews says their overall plan is to manage the vegetation that should be in the coastal scrub, including banksias, acacias and groundcovers, including pigface and hibbertia.
By removing the weeds, there is space for these plants to self-seed and reclaim their space.
