What to bring and wear: appropriate clothing and shoes, preferably household gloves with long cuffs or garden gloves, a weeding tool such as trowel or small mattock.

In this working bee we will tackle a horehound infested area between two major revegetation sites, the National Tree Day 2009 planting area and the drainage line planted with local shrubs to assist the establishment of a wildlife corridor. We hope to achieve some weed free passages between the plantings sites to reduce the spread of seeds by pedestrian traffic. The long term goal is to remove horehound from the whole area which will benefit native revegetation.

Join us if you can  and give as much or as little time as you want. Be amazed what you can achieve.
