Friends of Grasslands working bee at Hall Cemetary
12 September: Saturday morning, 10:00 am - 12:00 midday.
This early spring work morning is to continue our control of fleshy weeds, such as emerging Thistles, Cleavers and Capeweed, and also of selected patches of exotic grass through spot application of herbicide through the grassy woodland. Some physical removal can also be done, maybe a little planting. Morning tea is provided. Please dress for the weather and tall grass, bring your favourite small digging tool and gloves.
MOST IMPORTANT - so that enough gear (and morning tea) is on hand to match the enthusiasm of volunteers, REGISTER with at least two days in advance.
Advance warning for your diary - the late spring morning for more FOG work at Hall will be Sat 31 October.
10am to 12midday
2015 Murrumbateman Field Days
The field days are acknowledged as one of the region’s premier events and the flagship annual event for the Yass Valley.
Held on the third weekend in October with over 400 exhibitors, the Field Days are helped by around 1,000 volunteers. Each year, more than 20,000 visitors from the Yass Valley as well as Canberra, the Southern Highlands, Sydney and even further afield, descend on the 40 acre site at Murrumbateman Recreation Grounds across the two days.
The Yass Valley has a proud heritage connection to early rural Australia and a growing modern and well renowned food and wine scene. We welcome visitors to the 2015 Field Days - a slice of country at Murrumbateman.
