02/09/2023: October Working Bee

Beautiful weather at the working bee today!

We tackled the invasive onion weed along the main boardwalk. As you can see in below article, we've been pulling out onion weed around The Dell for 30 years.

There was also a family of King Parrots who came to join the fun!

Our next working bee will be Saturday, 7th of October. Hope to see you there.

01/07/2023: July Working Bee

This morning we had our monthly working bee.

Area of work - south entry near George Rd

Activity - weed removal and planting

Thanks to all of the rain we have been receiving, the grounds are still soft enough for planting.

9 of our volunteers braved the rain to remove invasive weeds like english ivy, privet and italian arum lilies before planting 180 new natives.

Well done everyone!

Our next working bee is on the 5th of August, please see our events to register interest.
