Barkers Creek Landcare and Wildlife group conduct a working bee every month from February to November on the third Sunday of the month.
Each year we also have two reciprocal joint working bees with Harcourt Valley Landcare group.
We encourage members to put the third Sunday of the month in their diaries. A week or so before the actual date an e-mail will be sent with all the final details – where, what, when and why? It needs to be said that after each working bee we enjoy, what can only be called, a scrumptious morning tea. All that hard work makes us hungry. And in December we have a lovely Christmas break up. Yeah!!!
Our start time does vary depending on the time of year. In Summer (February, March & November) it is 9am. In Winter (June, July & August) we start at 10am. For the other months (April, May, September & October) 9.30am is the go. Regardless of the start time we are always well and truly done by noon.
