Marrickville Landcare

A few precious traces of remnant vegetation still remain on the Marrickville Golf Course. The remnant Sandstone Heath outcrop next to the clubhouse has been regularly worked by the Marrickville Landcare group since 1999.

Join this volunteer team and learn about native plants and gain skills in bush regeneration. The group meets for a monthly working bee, where volunteers undertake various tasks, including weeding, planting and mulching under the direction of a qualified Biodiversity Supervisor.
