I wish we could have this more often, 67 minutes of community service for Mandela day brought a group of Woodridge students to the Reserve and we got one group to work attacking the Podylarias under Rob’s supervision and another with Ellie and I creating some more paths in the arboretum.

First they were welcomed and told what we expected:

14-P1020625

15-P1020629
We were impressed with the enthusiasm and hard work, even the teacher got involved and some hefty Keurbooms were taken to the compost heap.

Pity the 67 minutes ended way too soon, if only we could get that kind of help more often from the members on our Facebook group.
