  1. This project is coming along nicely. A group of us go along most Sunday afternoons from 3pm til 5pm and do weeding and plant care. Tea and Coffee provided. It’s a great way to spend some time with good people that love to make a difference to the environment and as friends. All welcome even to come say hello!
    It’s at Charlesworth Street near Ferrymead in behind Mitre10 Mega centre. Cheers.
