After 18 months of hand-weeding the jump-seed from the public road verges, Jayne and myself, as the main volunteers, with help from Lil and Pav, have at last got our signs through Andy Erskine from the Council’s depot. Andy has been the only one who has shown direct support to us although I have lobbied the Mayor, other Councillors and had a face to face pointless meeting with 6 Council bureaucrats. Disappointing but today we can celebrate one huge step forward and feel safer as we hand-weed next to a road that some vehicle drivers think is a race track.
Yellow breasted Robin.
Special congratulations too for Nadia and her dedicated team of volunteers. Nadia has shown resilience and courage in her dedication to her herbicide free group.
Byron Shire Chemical Free Landcare, next fortnightly working bee will be on Saturday, the 6th of December, from 8am to 12pm, at Brunswick Heads Crown Land Reserve site. Meet at the end of South Beach Road fire track gate. We will be working 150 meters down the beach from dog walking track, when you get to the Bitou Bush on the front due, walk in heading west and you will find us.
If you are early, start to pull seedlings on the front dune. We are working on the last patch of old Bitou and we can see across to the other side – so very exciting. We are asking for as many helping hands as we can get there, so the work can be completed this year.
Please wear boots, long sleeve shirt and long pants, a hat, gloves and bring water, rain coat’
This is our last working day for this year – can you bring some goodies to share.
