CCA had a very productive three day ‘weedathon’ in late October. We are very grateful to Woodside who sponsored two small work teams from Conservation Volunteers Australia (CVA) for the first two days.
On Monday 22nd January a group of enthusiastic people from Pricewaterhouse Coopers joined CCA volunteers for a working bee. It was a hot morning but we achieved a great deal and perhaps rescued some of the very stressed small plants by giving them a big drink.
We had another terrific bunch of workers from PwC at Mudurup last week. Thanks to Tom Durkin for this blog post and to the rest of the team for their help in keeping our plants alive – your support really helps….
Many thanks to Chez Scalise for this blog post and to all the great team from PwC. For some volunteers from the PwC team, we were returning to back to the same site where we helped the incredible team at the Cottesloe Coastcare Association, and for others it was a new opportunity to help the Association in their mission to preserve the local ecosystem.
Planting has started for 2013 and we got off to a great start with an excellent team of volunteers from Pricewaterhouse Coopers who gave us a day of work!
Spring time is weeding time for Cottesloe Coastcare volunteers and we have been hard at work. Despite the very poor rain this past winter, the rain received was distributed over a long period and perhaps this is the reason that every weed species seems to be doing extra well this year!
Following a successful day with the Cottesloe Coast Care team a few weeks prior, 27 new fresh faced volunteers from PwC set out to emulate the achievements of the mighty “A1 Planting Team”.
Our planting season is going really well – particularly so because of the fantastic teams we had join us last week – Conservation Volunteers Australia (sponsored by Woodside – thank you Woodside!), the V Gang from UWA and a fantastic team from Pricewaterhouse Coopers.
As part of CCA’s Sustainability September, the WA Grocery Team volunteered their Tuesday morning to assist Cottesloe Coastcare complete one of the very important, though less glamorous aspect of their role; weeding!
We are well under way with our planting for 2011. You can see in the photos that on Friday 21st May the wet weather and strong wind did not deter a great team of enthusiastic and expert volunteers.
