Walmer Reserve weeding bee
Saturday 8 October 2022, 10:30am - 12:30pm
Pt Chevalier’s Walmer Reserve hasn’t seen much weeding of late, but a bunch of neighbours are keen to give it some TLC.
If you can spare an hour or so, come down at 10.30am on Saturday 8 October. Meet on the grass beside 76 Moa Road and bring gloves, spades, loppers, whatever you’ve got.
The flax in the reserve is used by the harakeke kahui weaving collective, so the whole park is a pesticide and poison-free zone. This means we’ll be removing weeds by hand. We’ll be going for:
- Arum lily
- Woolly nightshade
- Moth plant
- Cape ivy
There is also a fair bit of gorse and blackberry, so if you’re up for a challenge, bring your leather gloves and protective clothing.
We hope to run follow-up weeding bees in the coming months.
