Muriwai Environmental Action Community Trust
Weedbuster Type: Group
Contact Person: Gerry Henley
We are doing our bit to bust weeds in Muriwai. Brush wattle and woolly nightshade we love to hate along our road corridors, along with velvet groundsel, elaeagnus, agapanthus, tradescantia, ginger, blue morning glory, moth plant, etc, etc, etc! We deal with them on road corridors, private land and also on park land where we have a clearing and planting project underway.
We regularly run an article in the local Gannet newsletter (bi-monthly) on “Weed of the Month” to get locals involved.
With Chris Ferkins from Gecko NZ Trust, we are in process of establishing a Sustainable Neighbourhood group and weed control will be among the topics there.
And yes - happy to be contacted by willing weed whackers & busters who would like to help.
