Our next Borthwick Park working bee is on Sunday 16th April, 9-11am. Jobs for all ages and abilities. Invite a friend or neighbour to volunteer with you. Bring the kids! We’ll likely have some mulch to barrow, bucket and spread, plenty of cheeky kikuyu grass to pull out of the garden beds, a bit of tidying up amongst the shrubs…. if we get a few terracotta or earthenware pipes donated we can set up some refuges to help lizards and frogs to shelter from predators.

All tools and training provided for our wonderful volunteers. Wear suitable footwear and clothing. Bring your KRA volunteer vest if you have one (we’ll issue you with on on the day if needed).

Call John for more details on 0422 909 710.

If you can’t manage the physical work, join us for morning tea from 11am. Free tea, coffee, and a delicious spread of morning tea treats on offer. We’d love to see you.

Community working bees held since 2009 have dramatically increased the biodiversity and amenity of Borthwick Park or Karra Yarta, river red gum country.
