Normally on this front page we would list a range of exciting community activities where we would jointly share and learn and enjoy the social interactions which our Barrabool Hills Landcare Group has become famous for, As with many similar events across our now very disconnected world, we have had to postpone these activities and instead are providing a range of virtual opportunities to stay in touch to foster our strong community values connected to our increasingly healthy landscape. Even though we may not be meeting face to face, our Landcare community and landscape still needs you. Perhaps you’d like to help Geoff with our mapping project, or write articles for the website or newsletter, or contribute to our Facebook page. Perhaps you could provide some photos of your re-vegetation sites – what an amazing experience it is to suddenly realise you have created something that will help the other living species on this planet weather the challenges ahead. All you need to do is contact us! And of course, there is the City Nature Challenge, using iNaturalist. All you need is a mobile phone ans the App. See the article inside. Or on a more practical note perhaps you are heading for the shops or produce store and can run an errand for someone who is housebound. There has been a lot written about how we need to modify our natural instincts in the short to medium term but I believe the following from my “Old Girls School network”sums up who are as a community and what we stand for, just wished I had penned it. “Every handshake that we don’t make must become a phone call that we place. Every embrace that we avoid must become a verbal expression of warmth and concern. Every inch and every foot foot that we physically place between ourselves and another must become a thought as to how we might be of help to that other,, should the need arise. Our COVID-19 pact.” Kaye Rodden
