Nature needs your help in Shoebridge Reserve!
Come and learn how to identify and control the invasive weeds behind the Playcentre Orchard in Shoebridge Reserve.

Meet in the orchard beside the Tutukaka Community Church at 10am (2b Waiotoi Road) the event runs to noon however feel free to come and go as you please during this time.
The Work | You can work at your own pace – there is something for everyone here, from simply learning how to identify plants or tackling the bigger weeds to sitting in a patch of seedlings and plucking them out.
What to wear | sturdy shoes, long clothes, weather protection.
What to bring | gardening gloves and hand tools if you have them (or you can borrow them from our kit), bring your own allergy medication (we have a basic first aid kit), water to stay hydrated and a snack to keep you energised.
