FoMM Working Party at the Fair

Help tackle pesky weeds at the National Tree Day planting site behind The Fair in North Watson. Come for an hour or more – you will make a difference.

It is most pleasing to see that herbaceous weeds at the southern end of the National Tree Day planting site behind The Fair are receding thanks to volunteer control efforts over the past two years.

At the northern end however, Paterson’s Curse went ballistic following the rain in recent months and some areas are thick with Curse.
