This way to the Busy Bee!….

Hi Everyone!

We are in need of some HELP with outstanding chores on our property called “Kookaburra” in Gidgegannup, Western Australia. We have set aside the weekend of 8th & 9th March to get some super important jobs done, and we’re wondering if you would like to pitch in and help us? πŸ˜€

For those of you who don’t know, “Kookaburra” is a non profit farm haven for a collection of needy animals in the beautiful Gidgegannup hills. We have over 30 large farm animals and approx 50 animals all up, with more rescues on the horizon. We keep our rescue numbers relatively small and manageable so that we can give them all the absolute best of care, each and every animal here has a name and is adored.

So – if you love animals and enjoy working outdoors, if you enjoy spending time with people who are driven by compassion, and if you love eating delicious cruelty free food – you will no doubt enjoy visiting our special little place. πŸ™‚

To get involved we need you to please register your attendance on our VolunteerSpot calendar via this link: http://vols.pt/X9RUas. This will take you to a sign up page to view our “monthly busy bee calendar”. Once you’ve accessed the calendar you will see the two dates scheduled for 8th & 9th March. Here you will see the variety of positions we need filled and you can select and register for the tasks you would like to get involved in.

Brief overview of the busy bee days:

Saturday 8th – is “Operation Cotton Bush Cull”. This day will be dedicated to weeding some large paddocks of the insidious Wild Cotton Bush Weed, as well as one of his sinister friends – the Potato Weed. The paddocks in question are LARGE so we hope to get some good numbers helping out to make the job easier for all. Many hands make light work. πŸ™‚

Sunday 9th – is “Operation Rooster Run”. The aim of the day will be to erect an enclosure for our 3 wayward Roosters (and future residents) that will not only protect them from foxes, but will also protect us from kneecapping attacks, and the garden from topsoil demolition. πŸ˜‰ There may also be residual weeding jobs left over on the Sunday that we can finish off.

We will provide refreshments and a delicious vegan lunch on both days. You are welcome to BYO water and food though provided the food is vegan please. Sunscreen, appropriate footwear (uneven terrain in long dry grass), and appropriate clothes are essential. Please refer to the VolunteerSpot calendar for more details on what to bring on the day.

Hope to see you soon!
