Planting Bee – Sunday, 3rd July

Our third working bee for this year is to be this coming Sunday (3rd July, 2016) morning in Blacks Walk on the north side of the Garie Street bridge starting at 9AM.  We’ll mostly be planting with some weeding around native grasses if we have time.  We’d love to have some help making the most of the cooler months to give new plantings a good start.

Time: 09:00 – midday.  Morning tea provided at about 10:30.  Please join us for a cuppa anyway if you are unable to work with us on the day.

Location: Blacks Walk on the north side of the Garie Street bridge (see below).

Planned activities:  Work will consist mostly of planting out with some weeding if time allows.

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, weeders like “daisy diggers”, 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 likely to be parking available at the end of Garie Street in the car park adjacent to the Guides Hall.
