Weeding Norwood Park

posted Mar 27, 2014, 2:23 AM by NORA Support

Dear Residents,
We will be weeding Norwood Park this Saturday (29 March) between 10h00 and 12h00!
Please wear a hat and sunscreen, and bring gardening gloves and implements if you have. I will bring refuse bags. City Parks has agreed to collect our refuse bags on Monday.
We will be concentrating our efforts on the eastern side of the park (nearest to Grant Avenue) – pulling out weeds, but also clearing rubbish that we stumble upon.
Look forward to seeing you then!
