Volunteers brave the cold
Four volunteers braved the 2°C start on Tuesday August 7th to weed, fertilise with blood and bone, and cover with pine needle mulch the fifty or so rhododendrons around the course. Bob Dobinson gave us the work cart and Mike DeJong used his ute to great effect. We only found two blackberries underneath, they must have been missed earlier in the year -- a bit of sloppy work by Ron Winzer! Most of the old tree guards have now been removed and another visit in the Autumn should encourage more growth. Thanks to Mike DeJong, Mike Hotchin, Ron Winzer and Geoff Durham for their morning’s work.
Our great volunteer group
Members who have a couple of hours to spare every month or so and who would like to volunteer, are urged to contact Geoff Durham who will advise you of the next date and what to bring.
