8 am meeting at Mill Road Huonbrook Herbicide Free Volunteers will follow up to remove Jump-seed from the road verges.
Our 4 year effort has seen a dramatic reduction with the plant reseeding in patches which we will remove on Saturday.
Our original volunteer mornings begun when council sent contractors to spray the drain with glyphosate where Jump-seed had established itself.
The spraying was instigated by Wilson Creek Land-care.
Wear bright covering clothing, sensible sturdy shoes or boots, work gloves and hat.
Bring drinking water too.
Estimated 10 30 am finish.
Byron Shire Chemical Free Landcare next working bee will be on Saturday the 1st December, from 9 am until 1 pm, at New Brighton chemical free site. We will be there removing Glory lily, Bitou bush and Ground asparagus seedlings. We are specially looking forward to meet Ocean Shores locals, that would like to help with this project. Please meet us at the first curve, on the left, at North Head Road. Park your car and walk into the beach. The site is towards the south directions and you will see us on the dunes. This is a short strip of land, between the ocean and the back of the houses. Please wear boots, long sleeve shirt and long pants, a hat, gloves and bring water. Tools and first aid kit will be provided, however if you have a serrated knife, that you don’t mind to be used on the send, it will be great to bring for the Asparagus removal.
