Opening the vistas and clearing hazards at Honeycomb Reserve, with late morning tea.
Over recent years, landcarers, Council and our contractors have done a great job to progressively kill Gorse in the Honeycomb Bushland Reserve. In the ‘older’ areas it’s dead, standing tall, and now fragile and easily demolished.
On Sunday we’ll be ‘Gorse bashing’- beating down the dead plants to light mulch to reduce the fire hazard, open vistas along the trails and Eastern boundary of the Reserve, and expose the excellent native vegetation scattered amongst it. We’ll remove some newly emerging Bridal Creeper previously hidden by dead Gorse, and also view the seedlings emerging in the area nearby which we direct-seeded last year. There’s rubbish to collect too and, depending on numbers, we may divert a team to Ranters Gully to remove hazards.
Meet at 10:00 a.m. at Honeycomb Bushland Reserve, Campbells Creek, where Honeycomb Road meets the gravel Trail. We’ll finish with a late morning tea at noon.
For the “bash” – a sturdy-handled garden tool (e.g. rake, hoe, rakehoe) or a baseball bat if you have one! And a garden fork if you wish for the Bridal Creeper.
As always – Gloves, hats, sturdy clothing & footwear, protection suitable for the weather, and your own water.
We’ll supply the rest - hope to see you there.
