HACK NEWS: REPORT ON 3 FEBRUARY HACK
We had a good turnout of 14 hardy souls who braved the strong SE to join the Hack. It was good to have Alison and John Charalambous, Brian Ratcliffe from the UK out on holiday and Kay Leresche helping to boost our numbers. A great deal was achieved and although there is still more to do, some areas are now clear of rooikrans seedlings and Port Jackson ( Acacia Saligna) but we will need to be vigilant as new seedlings emerge from the enormous seed bank that has been left here by generations of rooikrans and Port Jackson trees.
The Hack group thanks Ernst Thompson for researching, acquiring and donating a new poison to be used by us in future hacks. This is appropriately named “Kaput” and is a gel that needs to be painted onto freshly cut stumps. It has its own blue dye incorporated into the gel thus doing away with the messy business of having to constantly mix solutions for the hack group to use. Thanks Ernst- we are sure that “Kaput” will make a big difference to the Hack Group.
The next hack takes place on the first Saturday of the month i.e. Saturday 3 March and details will be sent out nearer the time. Please continue to remove alien seedlings wherever you find them!
Happy Hacking and Weeding!
