Working bees weed and mulch Runway Park gardens

The Umina Community Group has been holding a series of working bees to weed and mulch gardens at the Runway Park in Trafalgar Ave, Woy Woy.

The most recent was on Sunday, June 14.

Two more are planned for Thursday, July 2, and Sunday, July 12, from 10am for an hour each day.

The group will also be at the park when Central Coast Council's Landcare team plans to coordinate a National Tree Day activity on Sunday, August 2.

The event is expected to include planting on site, giveaways of native plant seedlings and a sausage sizzle.

"Residents receiving seedlings at each site will be asked to plant them within their property boundaries rather than in road reserves," according to a report prepared for the May 11 Council meeting by council's environmental manager Mr Luke Sulkowski.

"Encouraging planting within road reserves without direct guidance is challenging due to the potential risks to the community member working unsupervised on a Council roadside, and the presence of underground infrastructure that could be impacted from the tree."

The event "will be dependent on restrictions applying as a result of the current Covid-19 pandemic in August".

The report related the event to the Council's Community Strategic Plan aim to "educate the community on the value and importance of natural areas and biodiversity and to encourage community involvement in caring for our natural environment".
