Working Party at Majura Paddock (19-06-2011)

When: Sunday, 19 June 2011 from 1pm to 4pm.
Meet at the Hackett reservoir off Rivett and French Streets; view this map for the meeting point.
Bring and wear:
Sun protection, garden clothes with long sleeve and pants, and sturdy shoes. We’ll provide tools, materials and delicious afternoon tea.
Come along and learn how to make wire mesh tree guards and help install them to replace small plastic guards that the young plants have outgrown.
Friends of Mt Majura will host a National Tree Day 2011 community planting event on Sunday 31 July. We are looking for volunteers who could assist novice planters on that day. Potential Planting Buddies are requested to take part in our “How to plant a tree” introduction and training session on the Sunday, 19 June working party, following afternoon tea at about 3pm. A second training session will be held at our monthly working party on Sunday 17 July.
