In response to the pandemic and the current restrictions in Melbourne, the District 9800 Environmental Sustainability Committee was challenged to come up with an activity that would make a positive contribution to the environment, engage members and maintain their safety while in lock down. The concept of ‘Colour your World’ aims to encourage members collectively to contribute to biodiversity and support pollinators, by growing flowering plants in their garden.
