COVID-19 Precautions (will be updated a week before the activity).
Carry a fitted mask. We are working outside so you won't have to wear the mask unless you cannot maintain 1.5m separation in non-family-group situations.
You are encouraged to bring your own hand sanitiser and to practice good hygiene.

We prefer that you sign in for each activity on the Parkconnect website

Bring your own drinking water, and maybe some nibbles for yourself.

You will need old clothes and sturdy shoes, gardening gloves, a parka, or hat and sunscreen, and a water bottle. Wear long pants. You may also like to bring insect repellent.

Sunday 26 March – Westerfolds Park 10 am to 12 Noon (Mel 33 F2)

Removing woven plastic weed mats left after planting decades ago. Veer left immediately after entering the park from Fitzsimons Lane. Look for the Wattleview car park. It is blocked off, but there will be space in front of the barrier for parking. A mattock and box cutter/Stanley knife would be handy, but tools will be provided.


NOTE: The activities below are not in ParkConnect yet. There will be a short delay. We will let you know here when they are ready.

Maintenance around plants put in last year. Checking and refurbishing tree guards. Some weeding around the plants. Enter via a gate on the west side of Bonds Road, just after you go under the power line. You can park on the verge nearby if it’s dry, or go back to the small parking area at the turn-off to Montpelier Drive.
