Monthly working bees on public waterways

Regular monthly working bees on public waterways are an integral activity of MCCG. They generally involve clearing of weeds, planting of native vegetation and maintenance of the replanted zones. Plants are supplied by Habitat Brisbane. Check with the nominated contact person to confirm the precise working bee site and the main activity. 

We are currently seeking Section Leaders for Gold Creek Reserve, Lower Gold Creek and Mt Coot-tha Park. If you are interested, contact Jim Pope by email or phone 3374 4181.

A note from Jim: We had a lower than usual turn-out for the August working bee and still have quite a lot of weed clearing to do in the area between Tuckett St. Park and Kensington Circuit. This is potentially a high value area, but it is infested with balloon vine. I have put off doing anything about it for some time, but the conditions now are ideal and we did make good progress last time, so I would like to finish the work before the grass and weeds start growing again. I also hope to do some watering and weeding of the plantings we did over a year ago on the Kensington Circuit side of the creek. We will meet just inside the Tuckett St. gate. I hope as many as possible of you can attend. See you all then!
