Wednesday 2nd May, 9:15 am till 11:30 am (weather permitting, otherwise 9 May)
at the Paddy Gray Reserve (between Hereford Street and Wigram Lane, beside 57 Hereford Street)
Join the Glebe Society’s Blue Wrens, members from the Glebe Bushcare Group, Rozelle Bay Community Native Nursery & City of Sydney staff & contractors for a working bee at Paddy Gray Reserve (local National Tree Day site in 2010 & 2008). The focus this time will be on grasses & ground covers. We’ll look at what’s already growing in the reserve, learn a little from Council’s Ecology Manager, Katie Oxenham about native grasses & plant a few more in bare spaces. And there’s always weeding! And working out what should happen next to make the reserve more blue-wren friendly. If you don’t want to pull out weeds & add a few infill plants, come & have morning tea with the workers at about 10:30 am. You’ll need to wear socks & strong shoes &comfortable old clothes that protect you from sun and scratches. If you can, bring your garden gloves & trowel (some will be available). It would also help if you could bring your own filled thermos & mug.
