Working Party @ The Fair (19/07/2020)

The winter-flowering Spreading Wattle, Acacia genistifolia is one of the local species planted at The Fair to replace Sweet Briar roses and other woody weeds; it provides excellent habitat for birds and spiders (W.Pix).

Join in FoMM’s working party at The Fair on Sunday 19 July and help to spread mulch, plant a couple of local trees, and remove more than a couple of weeds.

When: Sunday 19 July from 10 am to 4 pm; give as much time as you like.

Where: Nature reserve east of The Fair, North Watson; access and volunteer registration at park entrance Tay / Ian Nicol Streets; view this map.

Bring: BYO drinking water, a snack and garden gloves if you have them; we will be providing cleaned tools and equipment, a range of personal gloves, hand sanitizer and an introduction to work and Covid-19 hygiene practice.
