Park Weekend Weeders
The Society has now held two weeding days, and we plan to hold monthly working bees throughout the winter. At our previous weeding day last Sunday we made very good progress concentrating on clearing around the trees planted last year to help make sure they continue to grow fit and healthy.
We are grateful that Eurika Enterprises, Browns Bay have donated some very useful tools that make what is sometimes a difficult job much easier. We now have long- and short-handled niwashis and garden sharks, which are particularly good for the wetland weeds.
Next month on May 16, Auckland Council will run the Long Bay Regional Park Planting Day and we invite you to come along and plant some trees. The Council needs lots of volunteers to help run the day, so if you would like to help out let me know.
