Come early for an introduction; give as much of your time as you want.

We will continue work to remove woody weeds from the gully south of Valour park. This work involves cutting stems of woody plants and dabbing the cut surface with the herbicide glyphosate; volunteers who don’t want to use herbicide may choose hand removing herbaceous weeds such as Viper’s Bugloss, horehound or thistles.
