Red Hill working bee Sunday 4 February 2018 from 08.00am

The Red Hill Regenerators invite you to our first working bee of 2018, which will be held on Sunday 4 February 2018 starting at 8am

Welcome back to Red Hill 2018! The weeds have not stopped growing while we enjoyed Christmas, and there is a fine collection awaiting our attention – verbascum, nettle trees, pyracanthas, briar rose, blackberries, cotoneasta, saffron thistles, St John’s Wort. And that’s just for starters!

We plan to meet at the Mugga Way car park at 8am (yes, that’s really 8am) to beat the heat. We will work up the slope from the cutoff drain to the summit and between the two tracks which lead NW and SW from the carpark.
