The January holiday season is nearly over and we trust that you have had an enjoyable time. We are crossing our fingers that most of the hot weather is nearly over, too, as we look forward to our next weeding work party

… and our NEXT weeding work party is planned for …

8:30 to 11:30am Saturday 2 February 2019

Weed working party

Date: Saturday, 2 February 2019, 8:30 to 11:30am.

We shall focus on removing non-local Sweet Pittosporum (Pittosporum undulatum) (perhaps not really so sweet as a weed!) and Yellow Pittosporum (P. revolutum) and other naturalised woody species in the peripheral areas of the Australian National Botanic Gardens (ANBG).

Meet: the ANBG Southern car park. After going in the main gate, turn sharp left, follow road around the perimeter up to the top level of that carpark. Look for banner or balloons near the pay-parking machine.

Bring: Enthusiasm, your family and friends, water (and a small digger, if you wish). Everyone is welcome.

Wear: hat, sunscreen, long-sleeved shirt, long pants, gloves, stout shoes. A delicious morning tea will be provided about 10:00am

Please book: if you are planning to come, please email your name and phone number to friendsofblackmountain@gmail.com or phone 0437 298 711, as this helps with the catering. Also, having your contact number helps us to let you know if arrangements need to change at the last minute (for example, adverse weather conditions).

If you need further information, please contact me by email or phone 0437 298 711. We look forward to hearing from you, and seeing you at our next weeding work party.

PLEASE NOTE: IT WILL BE CANCELLED IF THERE IS A TOTAL FIRE BAN
