Friends meet weekly, weather permitting, usually on a Thursday morning from 8.30am at the very bottom of Stanhope Street. Much of our work centres around maintaining the picnic area and removal of remerging weeds in vulnerable areas. Recognition by various funding bodies in the form of grants has meant that the work to revegetate Cornish Hill can continue – see acknowledgements.

So why not become a volunteer?
• It’s fun and good exercise and you get to meet people and make friends
• Learn more about native plants and wild life
• Help save a piece of Daylesford’s history
• Do something for the environment
AND besides we always serve good coffee and cake at working bees and events!!!

The Friends profile is forever being enhanced by the different skills each member brings. As a group we are open to different ideas and relish creativity. You may have a skill you would like to offer and it does not need to be of the manual labour variety. Maybe you are a whizz with a camera and would like to create a wild flower album, perhaps history is your interest, maybe website maintenance. We don’t know until you tell us so please email to or check us out on Facebook.
