This month's Working Bee is to be held to help the Te Aurere Waka Ama group to clear an area just past the Te Waiariki Purea Trust paddle shed. Rotorua District Council have given permission to clear weeds away from the area from the front of the paddle shed to the old dragon boat, to make more beach frontage for the storage of waka ama. And as the new walking track is going across the back of this area, this is a good opportunity to work together with the waka ama people.
Lake Okareka Community Assn will be paying for Thomas Rika and his men to bring their mulching machine in to help mulch down the weeds in the area.
WHEN: Saturday 3rd October 2015 from 9 am to around 12 noon
WHERE: near the Te Waiariki Purea Trust paddle shed, adjacent to Boyes beach, Millar Road, Lake Okareka. Please park in the public car park at Boyes beach reserve. The area where we will be working is over to the left of Boyes beach.
WHAT TO BRING: Please wear outdoor working clothes, strong footwear and sturdy gloves - there will be lots of prickly plants! If you have any loppers or a pruning saw they would be handy. If you have ear muffs please bring them with you to wear.
There will be morning tea provided!
Hope to see many of you at this working bee.
