Great reading at the Piccabeen Bookshop
Our little shop is bursting at the seams with a range of good
books, and there is always new stock to choose from. The
funds generated by this shop
are crucial in supporting our
work financially. Our volunteer staff are very friendly: do drop
in to say hello and buy a book
or two.

Birthday Facelift for Bookshop 
  Icon for Bookshop

To mark the tenth anniversary of our Piccabeen Bookshop, our president, Judith Roland, and a keen group of volunteers gave the façade of the shop a bright new coat (green, of course!) and a set of Piccabeen palms in pots. New shelving and a lick of paint have brightened the interior too.
Come along and see for yourself, pick up a bargain at the same time, and come say hello to our friendly, reliable volunteers.

Bookshop an Ambassador for Namibia
Icon for News Items  
Tamborine Mountain is celebrating the 2018 Commonwealth Games at the Gold Coast by forming a "Commonwealth Community". Our Piccabeen Bookshop is among seventy businesses and community organisations, each of which has become an ambassador for one of the seventy competing countries. We are presenting Namibia to mountain residents and visitors from April 2017 to April 2018, providing information about the country and stamping the "passports" of those who come to our shop.

Beechmont Landcare Planting Day  
  Icon for Save Trees message  

On Saturday 26th March TM Landcare volunteers reached out a helping hand to our neighbour organisation in Beechmont. In a morning's cheery labour, more than 40 people planted 600 trees at Back Creek. The planting was a joint initiative of Tamborine Mountain Landcare, Caring for Plateaus, Beechmont Landcare and Scenic Rim Regional Council. Additional support came from the Gold Coast Bushwalkers and convenors of the Syd Duncan Park project in Lower Beechmont.
In Beechmont, as on Tamborine Mountain, community revegetation projects along riparian corridors allow animals to move safely across the landscape instead of taking a more dangerous route across roads. In the existing reserves along the Back Creek bird watchers have spotted at least 160 bird species, as well as koalas, gliders and Richmond Birdwing Butterflies.

Last Sunday's planting reminds us how much our local environment and its inhabitants - including us - can benefit from such collaboration among community groups and regional organisations.
