Working bees

Next date: Saturday, 01 June 2024 | 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM

3 women carrying plants and shovels at a park

If you have a passion for protecting and preserving Kingston's open spaces, bushland, and foreshore reserves, come and join us for a working bee. You'll pick up some great skills and learn about our beautiful environment.

Activities on the day can range from litter collection and hand weeding through to revegetation of indigenous plant species.

All you'll need is weather-appropriate clothing, a water bottle and a hat. Gloves will be provided if you don't have a pair of your own.

We look forward to seeing you there!
