2008 June - TNP Joalah SectionJune 5 marked World Environment Day and the Tamborine Bush Volunteers (TBV) celebrated this day by starting a new project at their June working bee.


The new project is part of Joalah Section of Tamborine National Park.  The area is overgrown with lantana, canary creeper and many other garden escapees.  The area adjoins a plot which was originally cleared and revegetated several years ago by a Green Corp team, QPW officers and the late Trev Morgan.  Students from the Queensland Academy of Health Science, a new member and hardened TBV members commenced the clearing in preparation for revegetation.

The TBV continue to maintain projects at Pirralilla, MacDonald, Palm Grove and The Knoll Sections.

TBV working bees are held on the first Saturday of each month.  New members are always welcome – no membership fees, work at your own pace.  If interested, please 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.
