Adopt a site
Even though our group works on a different site each month, we also want to establish small teams of up to four people who can tend each patch in between the big group blitzes.
The idea is that a small group of people adopt a site near their home or work and take care of it on a regular basis at a time that suits them.
The sites are beautiful little havens to be in, and weeding is such a peaceful activity in a frantic world. And if four people take responsibility for a site, there is only a very small time commitment for each person.
A short workshop will be available to help you identify native grasses from exotics (it can be difficult when they are young) and to demonstrate how to weed without disturbing the soil too much.
If you are interested, phone IWEG secretary Deb Auchinachie on 0410 762 599 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
