2009 Feb - TNP Joalah - new members at workThe Tamborine Bush Volunteers (TBV) welcomed Kelly, Margaret and Jessie  to our last working bee at Joalah section Tamborine National Park. Planting a tree for the future is always a popular activity when revegetating the national park. Behind this activity lies many hours of work; clearing weeds, lantana, creepers and other introduced plants.

This project has been a labour of love for the last 8 months and it is rewarding to see the difference a small group of dedicated volunteers can make. With new land acquisitions coming into the Tamborine National Park, there is no shortage of projects for the group to undertake.

The TBV has a long association with Tamborine Mountain as the group was formed in March 1988 and has worked continuously since then in maintaining and enhancing all sections of the National Park. The TBV continue to maintain projects at Pirralilla, MacDonald, Palm Grove and The Knoll Sections.

According to information collected by the Visitor Information Centre, the majority of tourists who come to Tamborine Mountain spend time in the National Park, so its preservation has a commercial value as well as an aesthetic one.

TBV working bees are held on the first Saturday of each month. For more information Contact the TBV Coordinator

Why does attentiveness to nature matter? In a very fundamental sense, we are what we pay attention to. Paying heed to beauty, grace, and everyday miracles promotes a sense of possibility and coherence that runs deeper and truer than the often illusory commercial, social "realities" advanced by mainstream contemporary culture. ... Our attention is precious, and what we choose to focus it on has enormous consequences. What we choose to look at, and to listen to--these choices change the world. As Thich Nhat Hanh has pointed out, we become the bad television programs that we watch. A society that expends its energies tracking the latest doings of the celebrity couple is fundamentally distinct from one that watches for the first arriving spring migrant birds, or takes a weekend to check out insects in a mountain stream, or looks inside flowers to admire the marvelous ingenuities involved in pollination. The former tends to drag culture down to its lowest commonalities; the latter can lift us up in a sense of unity with all life.
