2010  - TNP Pirralilla Section - Planting in RainThe Tamborine Mountain mist has put a dampener on the Tamborine Bush Volunteers working bees in 2010.  If this is Climate Change at work, the rainforest is not complaining.  On both working bees the members have put in a sterling effort under showery conditions.  At the Geissemann Drive project weeding was the task while this month planting in the rain at Pirralilla Section did not seem so bad.  If you would like to join these activities, new members are made to feel welcome.


As part of our ongoing commitment to Tamborine Mountain, the TBV has made application to the Scenic Rim Regional Council to lease a section of a Council reserve.  This will allow the group to store equipment and operate a small nursery for rainforest plants.

The TBV wishes to acknowledge support from Southern Cross 4WD Tours to assist the group in weed removal and revegetating the national parks on Tamborine Mountain.  The TBV applauds Southern Cross 4WD Tours in supporting community programs that improve the natural environment.

The next working bee will be held at 8:00 am on the 10 April at MacDonald Section.   TBV working bees are usually held on the first Saturday of each month.  New members are always welcome – no membership fees, work at your own pace.  If you are interested Contact the TBV Coordinator

Why does attentiveness to nature matter? In a very fundamental sense, we are what we pay attention to. Paying heed to beauty, grace, and everyday miracles promotes a sense of possibility and coherence that runs deeper and truer than the often illusory commercial, social "realities" advanced by mainstream contemporary culture. ... Our attention is precious, and what we choose to focus it on has enormous consequences. What we choose to look at, and to listen to--these choices change the world. As Thich Nhat Hanh has pointed out, we become the bad television programs that we watch. A society that expends its energies tracking the latest doings of the celebrity couple is fundamentally distinct from one that watches for the first arriving spring migrant birds, or takes a weekend to check out insects in a mountain stream, or looks inside flowers to admire the marvelous ingenuities involved in pollination. The former tends to drag culture down to its lowest commonalities; the latter can lift us up in a sense of unity with all life.
