Byron Shire Chemical Free Landcare next working bee will be on Saturday the 26th of April, from 9 am till 1:30 pm, at Brunswick Heads Crown Land Reserve site. Meet at the end of South Beach Road fire track gate. If you come later, walk along the dog walking beach heading South for 50 m and you will spot us loping Bitou bush on the front dune. During the last dry spring and hot summer we sweep through the whole site with our hands, 4.75 hectares, pulling seedlings of Bitou Bush. This work also give us a chance to see what is happening with the site’s natural regeneration and we have great news, many seedlings of natives where spotted included more threatened species. So now we are ready for more primary work and new volunteers our welcome. We have 15 pairs of loppers, so if you have some spare time and want to learn how to restore the dunes using the chemical free strategy please come and join us.
We know pesticides can drift onto neighbouring farms and into homes, parks and schools. We also know children romp in all these places, and that their growing bodies are especially vulnerable to pesticide harms. Time to let your spraying/injecting neighbours know they are causing harm.
