Working Bee 10 November 2018

WB11frontThis was the last working bee of 2018 and we had around 20 eager volunteers to tackle Cassia St Reserve. This is a reserve we have worked on before, removing woody weeds and replanting. This working bee was about the maintenance of the tracks or, in some cases, re-creating tracks as our plantings had done so well that they had over grown some of the original tracks.

 We also did some cut and paste, and hand weeding of some woody weeds. We identified Psoralea pinnata (Common Names:-Blue Pea; Fountain Bush; Fountain Tree; African Scurfpea) highly invasive, prolific seeding weed, that we removed from the Cassia St side. A fantastic way to end the working bee year, along with now the reserve is ready for the inquisitive kids and adults over the summer holidays.
