Summer Twilight Weeding 2024

Flowering target weed St John’s Wort

These summer evening weeding sessions have been popular as people enjoy some relaxed summer time.

Join us at The Fair site in North Watson from 6-7.30 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 9 January.

The twilight sessions target St John’s Wort, Hypericum perforatum. We will  work in patches of dense wildflowers pulling out the weeds.

A native Glycine with clover-like leaves climbing among bushy Clustered Everlastings,  and some St John’s Wort flower heads visible at the bottom left hand corner – a typical situation where hand-weeding helps.

Meet us at the nature park entrance at the corner of Tay and Ian Nicol Streets; view this map with the meeting point marked Volunteer Registration and blue outlined some of our wildflower patches.

In the cool of the early evening, when there are light breezes and sometimes stunning skies at sunset, it’s a very pleasant social activity.
