Event Details

**a message from Joppa Shoreline group**

Weeding the Mounds – short notice.
The council have kindly allowed the Joppa Shoreline group and Edinburgh Shoreline Project to do some planting on both bits of grass on either side ofthe Rockville Hotel. , the side with the mounds has lots of the grass growing througg the planted beds. Scott at the council has offered some plants to fill gaps, but I’m unsure when these will be available at present. We will also have plugs available at our September planting with Edinburgh Shoreline project. We’d love some help pulling out the rye grass in preparation for this.
Weeding morning – 10am-12pm Wednesday 7th August. Bring own trowel & gloves. I’m not sure spades will be required as there’s a membrane. I’ll bring one just incase.

Dress for the weather, wear sturdy shoes and bring a drink, or else you can purchase a drink from the Rockville Hotel.
Further dates will be added if not completed and another session will probably be needed late August/early September.
