Working Bee – Sunday, 24th August 2014 [updated 27/8]

Our latest Working Bee on Sunday, 24th August, 2014 mainly addressed weeds the in the park at the bottom of Gardenia Street.  The primary target was Angled Onion weed – our notorious weed of the month in May.  Unfortunately, numbers were down a little on usual.  

Our working bee coordinator (Mary) reports that our weeders started at the edge and weeded inwards – work was slow and tedious but they did remove a rather lot of that very smelly weed.  Neighbours will have very clear nostrils for a few days!

Committee member Jim gave a demo of our new pump and that led to planting 20 in-fill plants.

“Gardener’s knee pads” were also put to the test and given a tick of approval.   Friend Ann demonstrated the best way to put them on  – velcro on the outside!

 Our next working bee will be at the same location on 28th September at 09:00.
