A total of 40 volunteers came to clean-up Maynard Park on Clean Up Australia Day last Sunday. Volunteers removed 15 bags of rubbish and assorted waste, and 1.5 cubic metre the weed Buffel Grass, totalling 300kg of waste removed to the ASTC waste facility. Approximately 450 sq m of the site was weeded (15mx30m). It was a great day, and Site coordinator Andy Vinter was literally “speechless” over how well it went – having earlier lost his voice.
Thanks to the Jnr Rangers and coordinator Jacelyn Anderson for lending a hand, and we wish them well for their ranger time to come. Thanks to Tanya Howard of the NT NRM board for her help, and ABC local radio and talkback gardener Geoff Miers. Don’t forget field days at Maynard Park are held every 2nd Saturday of the month, with days planned for April and May.
