The Gums Landcare Group
The Gums Landcare Group is a new landcare group formed to encourage Tranmere residents to look after The Gums.
The Gums Landcare Group Vision:
- To assist in improving the hydrology and biodiversity of Third Creek through The Gums in association with aboriginal groups, volunteer community groups and individuals and the City of Campbelltown who are interested in land and water management activities in natural resource management;
- To facilitate the exchange of ideas, skills, information and resources between volunteer community groups/individuals and the City of Campbelltown to improve and enjoy The Gums.
Working bees are held on a monthly basis and will involve light weeding, planting local species and assisting the City of Campbelltown to improve the creek zone. We were fortunate to have a Green Army team as well as an Adelaide and Mt Lofty Ranges NRM Board Community NRM Action Grant to help us to make significant improvements to Third Creek through The Gums reserve in 2017.
More work is happening each month and we have a great relationship with the St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, who have been introducing art works into The Gums as part of their knowledge gain about biodiversity.
