I'll volunteer for Bushcare and permaculture
vegetation on campus since 2008. Bushcare@MQ meets at various sites around campus to help preserve the biodiversity of our beautiful campus. We meet with a Bush Regeneration expert who tell us the work plan for the session. Bushcarers are provided with all the tools and equipment they need - and of course light refreshments! Sessions involve weeding and planting of trees, shrubs and groundcovers. Find out more about Bushcare@MQ volunteer sessions.
Since 2014 Macquarie University Sustainability has been working on creating an onsite sustainable garden that incorporates permaculture gardening design principles based on the natural/organic gardening concepts by Bill Mollison and David Holmgren. What we’re doing here at Macquarie Sustainability is promoting sustainable use of space by using small-scale permaculture gardening principles. We use the space for hosting permaculture workshops, working bees, and harvesting the literal fruits of our labour! Find out more about Permaculture Demonstration Garden volunteer sessions.
