Let it Bee

Bring along your friends and family and bee sure to enjoy our temporary wildflower meadow along the Great West Walk! We’ve planted it as part of our “Let it Bee” project.

The wildflower meadow will be open from Summer 2021 to Autumn 2022.

Council was awarded funding under the NSW Government’s Greening the Great West Walk program for an innovative planting project called “Let it Bee”. This project was designed to improve soil quality and prepare tree beds for planting through the installation of a temporary wildflower meadow.

The wildflower meadow is along the Great West Walk, a 65km walk from Parramatta to the base of the Blue Mountains. This planting is part of the Greening the Great West Walk program and will help reduce temperatures along the walk, mitigate the urban heat island effect and help enhance biodiversity.

After flowering, Council staff will collect suitable seeds for propagation in the nursery before the wildflowers are cultivated back into the soil for tree planting.

‘Bee’ sure to check it out this season and see what flowers, butterflies, and other pollinators you can spot before it’s gone!
