When: Sunday 16 July, from 1 pm to 4 pm; give as much time as you want.

Where: The old sheep camp at the junction of Casuarina Track with the summit trail, click on this map to see the meeting point marked with the red balloon number 6, the access points to Casuarina Track, and the location of the sheep camp.

If you are unfamiliar with the area, be aware that it will take you 30 or 35 minutes to walk there.

What: Hand weeding a variety of herbaceous weeds, mainly horehound.

Bring: Sun protection, drinking water, garden gloves and secateurs if you have them.

Wear: Sturdy shoes and clothes which cover your limbs preferably with a smooth surface to prevent horehound burrs attaching themselves; if you wear knit clothing you may look like a hedgehog after weeding.

We provide some tools, gloves, and a delicious cake for afternoon tea.
