Over the past two Sundays our Pitt Water – Orielton group have commenced weeding away the invasive Common Fennel and Boxthorn from the shore around Penna Beach. We had an enthusiastic team of 10 on both days! Having had lots of recent rain, the ground was ripe for easier pulling of weeds. However the deep tap roots of the Fennel could still break and ground be disturbed. We resorted to the cut and paste method for these massive plants.
