Come to a working bee
We hold a working bee and planting morning on the third Sunday of the month at one of our sites where volunteers pull out weeds, spread mulch and plant tube stock. We usually start about 9:30 am. This year we are trying a new system to keep on top of the weeds. We will be operating two sites each Sunday - adopt a site by coming to your favorite or swap around each week
A typical working bees last three hours – from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm – but you don’t have to stay the whole morning.
Put the billy on
Oh, and did we mention morning tea? This is a very important part of each working bee, so if you don’t fancy getting down and dirty with the weeds and tubestock, you could always knock up a batch of scones or boil the billy for the workers.
We hold a working bee and planting morning on the Third Wednesdays of the month at the site adjacent to Johnson Park where volunteers will pull out weeds, spread mulch and plant tube stock. We often meet at the Sideways Cafe for coffee at 9 am. Volunteers can also head straight to our site any time from 9:30 onward.
Mid week working bees run for up to two and a half hours but this is flexible. Come and join us for as long as you wish.
Join Jo at the Pigott Street site on the second and fourth Fridays of the month for a couple of hours. This is a small friendly group that meet on-site at 9:30am.
If you register with us, we will send out an email to let you of any changes or cancellations due to rain or unforeseen circumstances.
We will also aim to display any cancellations on the website.
Experience is not necessary
Don’t worry if you don’t know which plants to keep and which ones to pull out. There is usually someone on hand you can ask for advice.
What to wear
It is best to wear sturdy shoes, a long-sleeved top and long pants because the ground can be quite uneven in places and the thickets of plants are sometimes spiky. A hat and sunscreen are a must.
