This month's working bee is on Saturday February 21 at 1:00 pm.

It has been a busy month at the reserve. Mostly featuring lots of growth.

Fortunately, a solid effort at the January working bee followed by a really valuable corporate effort by Vazey Child means that all of last year's planting has been released at least twice and should now be self sufficient. Some of the manuka are growing so quickly that they have become top heavy. The dry spells haven't done any damage so far.

Unfortunately the privet has been staging a come-back here and there, so Warwick has been spraying carefully in the calm weather.

At this working bee there is an opportunity for several people to work on tracks. I have ordered 500 triangle track markers which we will install over the next few months. There are quite a few steps that are in poor condition and one track-side spring that needs diverting before winter. If you want to take part in track work, bring a spade or some loppers.

Other people could release plants on the stream bank, some hardy souls might like to do privet and the truly heroic could slog away at the gorse.

Whatever your poison it would be wonderful to see you. I plan to stay at the gazebo and butter the scones.

Regards

Keith
