Garden Team Event - Karonga School in Epping. Sunday 17th Feb
Sticking with tradition we have the February permabee at Karonga School.
After a long hot spell followed by the recent rain over the school holidays the weeds and grasses have jumped into action and are well on the way to taking over the place.
As Doug told me when I called in to visit the site “The kids when they face this are just overwhelmed, and don’t know where to start.” I have to say when I saw it I could sympathise.
The work needed isn’t complicated, plenty of weeding and planting of autumn crops in the two main herb and veg gardens and straightening out the chicken run.
If we can get enough hands on deck and get the weeding out of the way, we can go onto planting out some native trees near the car park.
We need plenty of help to get on top of the weeds so if you can spare an hour or two on Sunday 17 February, the kids at Karonga would appreciate it.
WHAT TO BRING...
Please bring personal protection gear such as a hat, gloves, boots, sunscreen and a water bottle. If you have a favourite gardening tools, bring them too.
Lunch will need to be SELF CATERED so bring a cut lunch for yourself (just like being back at school) and a bit extra to share. I will see if I can provide some music to work to.
Showers are predicted for the 17th. If it looks like a total wash out, you will be notified via email and the event may be moved to the 24th.
