Thanks for the help at the working bee

Great working bee at the club site on Saturday 24th July 2021.

Gordon, Dave and Irene had us all helping to tidy up the site ready for the start of the season.

We needed all those gardeners and folk who came along today, to contribute to the club’s pruning, shifting slabs of paving, concreting, painting and a myriad of other jobs.

It was a fabulous example of what a team of members can do when we all pull together.

Our heartfelt thanks go out to all those who took time out of their day to come down and do what needs to be done.

Working Bee postponed to 24th July

Working Bee postponed to Saturday 24th July 8.30pm – 3.00pm

Hi Team, 


SORRY EVERYONE but the working bee at the club has been cancelled for tomorrow.
I have left this for the last moment just in case we will miss the rain event. However, the weather office assures me that there will be a consistent amount of rain around the port hills and probably the city proper.
As I write Arthurs Pass is now closed due to slips.
The working be is postponed until next Saturday. I know you will be bitterly disappointed!

See you next week!

Paul O’Donnell
President.


So what needs doing? Can you spend an hour or so helping out to do just one of these tasks? I know you want to help so here’s our dream list to get done before the season starts:

  • Hoeing the gardens.. Keep those weeds down.
  • Staking up trees.
  • Popping in the plant signs.
  • Planting lavender etc.
  • Prune fruit trees.
  • Raking up leaves and acorns.
  • Removing dead branches – may need a ladder or saw/ loppers
  • Cover water tanks
  • Move paving stones for beehives
  • Rotary hoe and operator for new garden
  • Painting – brush handed wanted
