Working bee Saturday 24 June 2023


Location” Lilac Crescent, Currimundi

Meet near 19 Lilac Crescent, Currimundi. We will start in that area and work Eastward.

We are starting at 2pm and finishing at 4pm, half an hour than usual during winter months.

The timing of this working bee is different to our usual 2nd Saturday of the month because on Sunday 11th June, CCCG is hosting an activity for World Environment Day (see event this website) and some wonderful folk will be trying to do both the working bee on the Saturday and the WED activity on the Sunday so we separated the two events. To spread the load our next working bee will be put back 2 weeks. Many thanks to Michael from Council for his flexibility – greatly appreciated.

If you can’t find us on the day, please phone0402600280.

Target:  Garden escapees including barleria. This area of bushland is quite pristine – and hopefully we will be able to keep it that way.

The Working Bees

Currimundi Catchment Care Group hosts a monthly working bee on the second Saturday afternoon of the month. The location varies from month to month but may be any park or natural area within the Currimundi Catchment. The aim of the working bees is to remove invasive weed plants and unsuitable garden escapees from these areas and encourage natives to thrive in their place. We will sometimes plant natives in suitable areas as well. This in turn will provide food and shelter for native birds and wildlife. Details of each event will be added a week or so before each event. We can also add you to a working

Bring: Gloves if you have them, and all the usual protection. Megan from Council will be in attendance with tools, gloves, weed knowledge and anything else needed.

Everyone is welcome to join us. The work will suit most peoples of all levels of fitness and age. Children must be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult. We have a mix of regulars and people who just turn up when they can. Please wear long sleeves and pants and closed-in shoes for your protection. We also recommend a hat and water bottle. Gloves and tools supplied.

The working bees are operated under the Sunshine Coast Council Bushcare volunteer conservation program. Before participating for the first time you will be required to register and complete a safety induction (both simple processes). Gloves and  tools are provided. During the COVID-19 restrictions, you will be required to abide by social distancing rules at the event.  There is also currently a maximum of 20 participants.
