Saturday 7 April 2018

9:00am—12:00 noon

At the last work party, our wonderful weeders removed 55 mature woody weeds and collected 9 bags of rubbish as well as many large loose items as a contribution to the Clean Up Australia Day. A big thank you to the work party members, and our Ranger who took the rubbish away.

On 7 April we shall be concentrating on removing the young non-local Melaleucas and other plants that have emerged since the occasional rain, so that the local native plants, such as Leptospermum multicaule, can continue to thrive. We will need diggers for that, and I wonder if you have a small digger that you may like to bring along, in case we do not have enough in the car. There will also be some weeds big enough to cut and dab as well.
