Our next scheduled weeding day for 2022 in Edwards Point Reserve is this Tuesday 6 September 2022 at 10.00 am
The plan is to meet at the Dune St. entrance of the Western Block and remove some more Flax Leaf Broom from the grass areas on the circuit behind Calk Tce.
We would love to have you join us. The work is not strenuous, and there are no expectations on you to do more than you feel up to do, and there is no pressure to stay for the whole session.
I have listed the weeding session details below however, if it is consistently raining then we will cancel the weeding activity.
As we are working on a Parks Victoria’s estate, we are required to meet the following conditions.
Registering on Park Connect
Parks would also like all volunteers to register on Parks Connect.
The first step is to register your detail on Park Connect. You only need to do this once
The second step is to register your intention to join an activity This will help us keep in touch with you and let you know if the weeding morning has been cancelled due to inclement weather
Parks Victoria have implemented a mandatory requirement that all volunteers who are working in their Reserves hold a current Working with Children’s Check Card. This is easily obtained and is free for Volunteers and is very handy to have. You can now apply for the check via the Services Victoria App or via the below links.

What to Bring
Gloves - We can provide you with gloves if you don't have any or forget to bring them.
Appropriate comfortable shoes, or gumboots if it has been raining.
Sensible and appropriate clothes, preferably long sleeves, and pants (more protection from the sun).
Even though it's early Spring we still need to be mindful of UV so bring sunscreen and insect repellent - we will also provide these, but you may prefer to use your own.
Any personal medicine you may think you might need - we will have a first aid kit with us.
Your own water.
