Weed all better pitch in and help!
FOTSC report … ‘The 2020 wetlands restoration project is full steam ahead. With more funding planting plans are under way for the large areas of dead and cleared blackberry on site where 1800 trees and shrubs will be planted this year (starting possibly in May when rain returns).
The 1200 trees planted in 2019 are largely intact and growing despite floods, winds and little recent rain.
But we sure have a weed problem down there. We need community help to free up those carefully protected trees. Even an hour of your time will help to make a difference!
Wednesday 12 February between 9 and midday, and on 26 February, 11 March, 25 March and 8 April.
We can supply gloves, rakes and a treat for morning tea! (thanks to our local sponsors Roger from Plimmerton Deli and New World Supermarket).
