This Past Sunday 7th of April was a glorious sunny day at St kilda Beach where several community groups came together to showcase their work in maintaining the beautiful Port Phillip Bay clean and healthy. The groups there were Baykeepers, Earth Care, Beach Patrol and Transition Port Phillip.
It was great to meet and see all those wonderful people volunteering their time in these diverse and creative organizations. Here is a picture of Baykeepers Neil Blake (the pirate) demonstrating how to do a shell surveys with the guys from the beach patrol.
Baykeepers also presented the wonderful Captain Trash and The Litter Fairy, who did a fabulous job of entertaining old and young, with a profound and extremely funny song about plastic pollution “just add water”.
Transition Port Phillips activity involved using a whole lot of singles use plastics that we brought along so people could choose to incorporate them into their designs in the large large spiral we made on the sand. Some members of the group stopped by as well as others who were just passing by and decided to participate, mainly creative children who still love making sand sculptures!
It was a great experience for me, it was the first time I organized an event like this one. I have learned many things and I am ready to do it again with minor changes and adaptations. Thanks to everyone that stopped by and added their touch of creativity and support and made this activity possible!
