BEAMers all…the EVENTS GUIDE for the coming fortnight

KILMORE SHOW this Saturday

9am til 5pm but with a BEAMbags feature 11am til 1pm, with a variety of bags available, and artwork materials for kids to decorate their bags. And some PNG bilums on display- we could think of importing these for sale, they ARE a great shopping bag- strong and ever expandable. If you want to find out what a PNG billum looks like or want to join us for a chat, we are in the Community Street area of the Show.End of Year Christmas Party at the Tallarook Aboretum

SUNDAY December 14th is our END of YEAR party!!

Woohoo, but its YOUR show and its on at the Tallarook Arboretum from midday (after the Tallarook Market) with barbeque (please book in via the BEAM hotmail address, so we know numbers), salads concocted by the BEAM committee, BYO drinks but in lieu of Santa we have the world famous Spotted Quolls with their unusual array of christmas carols and songs of revolutionary love (or, trying to play the same tune together, same key). PLEASE BOOK IN so we can cater – for more info click here.


YOU missed a great WaterWatch morning at the Tallarook Arboretum last Sunday. No election hangovers nor kids parties could keep just 4 adults and 3 children from being present and prompt and thoroughly entertained by Kirsten Hogan and shrimp and damselflies and bumsquirters (I kid you not) and mature taddies. And paddlers and stick swimmers and….and we ate and drank all of the catering (expecting 20 or so).

Not sure about the response. It was an event flagged enthusiastically at the July BEAM workshops, and as a combined BEAM and Landcare event should have been good for numbers. It wasn’t. Was it the time of year? election hangover? I’d be interested in your thoughts please. Feedback to

The upside is that WaterWatch surveys may be a great way to engage kids at Landcare and BEAM events. Dabyminga Catchment Co-op (Tallarook and Reedy Creek Landcare Groups) has 4 workshops at the Arboretum each year…and its a fun thing for kids and parents alike. And for the record, the Dabyminga Creek is looking pretty healthy!
