Working Bee “Enjoyment Day” Functions

  • To control weeds and assist in the re-vegetation efforts
  • To support each other as local volunteers
  • To know the features of the property and identify its vegetation types
  • Bird identification, seed collection and heritage protection

Or just come along for whatever peaceful reason to simply enjoy the friendship of our wonderful group and one of the most precious places in the southern suburbs. We encourage the curious, walkers, people who like to read books under the shade of trees, those who like to meditate……and as long as the activity is friendly to the farm and safe for those participating, you are welcome.
