First MVCFRG Port Jackson Eradication Event Concluded Successfully

Our first event was concluded very successfully with five community members making a large impact on the Port Jackson bushes in our Valley.

In just more than a hour we cleared a considerable area of these myriad aliens ranging in size from 7mm and smaller to more than a meter in height. The welcome rain last evening ensured that the soil was moist, making it all so much easier.

Another event has been scheduled for next Saturday morning 08H30 – 09H30 as we have found that one hour is sufficient to make a big difference.

Regular walkers and dog-walkers are invited to contribute to this effort on an ad-hoc basis, but please ensure the aliens are either pulled out by the root completely or clipped below the growth node.

Fynbos regards,

Piet Potgieter
