2016-02 FoTNP - TNP KnollRd Down the Slope 2The Tamborine Bush Volunteers has commenced the year with a new revegetation project in The Knoll Section of Tamborine National Park.

This dedicated group has been working on Tamborine Mountain for 28 years and has removed introduced weeds from 20 national park plots and replanted with rainforest species. Some plots have taken on the appearance of mature rainforests.

2016-02 FoTNP - TNP KnollRd Down the Slope 1Although the name has served the group well over this long period, it has been decided to “rebadge” the group to more closely represent where the group works and what it stands for. The group will now be known as the Friends of Tamborine National Park. The Friends of Tamborine National Park is keen to show new members what can be achieved in a short time with Tamborine Mountain’s rich volcanic soil and abundance of CO2. If you would like to learn more about this dedicated group or join the next working bee on Saturday 5 March, 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.
