Working Bee – Sunday, September 28th 2014

Our September Community Working Bee, on Sunday, 28th September, 2014, will once again be in Furness Park, below Gardenia Street.


Planned activities:  The original plan was to focus on weeding – but we’ve received a very welcome donation of a couple of hundred tube-stock seedlings from Whitehorse Council that need planting out before it gets too dry.  So – all hands on deck please!  Shhhh…. there is also a suggestion that there may be some payola for working bee attendees at this month’s exercise!

Clothing:  We recommend sensible clothes for both the weather and the work – long sleeved shirts, long trousers, gloves, hats and work boots.  You might also like to consider kneelers or knee pads.

Training/knowledge:  None needed – experienced volunteers will be available to help in planting techniques and weed identification.

Tools:  Tools are provided but you are welcome to bring your own to make ours go further or to suit your working preferences.  Useful tools are hoes, weed bins/buckets and garden gloves.

Refreshments:   Although we provide both tea and coffee (and a bikkie if you work hard), you’ll need to bring your own drinking water or energy drink.

Car parking:   There is limited car parking in Gardenia, Heath or Furness Streets reasonably convenient to the work site.
