Thank you to all of the Landcare Okareka volunteers who helped with last month's working bee (and since!) removing the netting cages from the pohutukawas growing along the walkway. The pohutukawa trees sure have grown and needed a lot of coaxing to remove the netting cages.
THIS MONTH'S WORKING BEE: SATURDAY 24th MAY 2014
HELP !!!! WE NEED STRONG, FIT PEOPLE, PLEASE!
Meet at the Acacia Road boat ramp and jetty at 9 am to go on the barge - thank you to Dennis Falconer for allowing us to use the barge.
WHAT: This month we have some more things to do along the far end of walkway - we will need people who are strong and fit as we try to shift some of the gravel that has been left above the toilets at Silver beach and spread it onto the walkway. There are also some drainage channels to create. If you have a young fit neighbour please ask if they could help!
For those who would like less strenuous activity, there are more flaxes to be trimmed ;-)
WHAT TO BRING: Suitable clothing and footwear, gardening gloves, a wheel barrow if you have one (we are trying to borrow a couple of the sturdy concreting type barrows), spade or grubber, shovel, rake and/or secateurs - or similar - if you want to help with flax trimming.
We will definitely have everything needed for morning tea...Hope to see many of you on Saturday 24th May.
