In January Gary Mogford from Keep Australia Beautiful visited Newmarket Station to inspect the Stationeers work.






Regular monthly working bees were held to maintain the garden and keep the site clean. Two additional planting days were held in autumn and spring to fill in gaps and add some wildflowers.

Stationeers: Ian,Marina,Jennie, Thomas,Roger & John
