SUIT UP FOR THE ARTS WITH DUBLIN FRINGE FESTIVAL
Dublin FRINGE Festival
Requirements:Interest in the environment!
Volunteers can join in on our weekly activities.
We will remove some Dock weed from around the perimeter of a re-wilded zone.
Why do we remove Dock Weed?
The method will be to simply sever the stalks using spades. Tools will be available.
Timely removal of Dock stalks from here now, before they produce seeds, will reduce complications during yearly mowing around the circumference later in autumn.
Otherwise a proliferation of dock seeds could be carried on mowing equipment, to other places within the greater city area.
Docks are a listed noxious weed toxic to livestock (which usually avoid eating it) and then it can become dominant within pasturelands, and the law requires prevention of the spread of noxious weeds.
Is training provided?: Yes
Tasks that the volunteer(s) will be expected to undertake:
We also welcome volunteers to join in on a leisurely walk&talk events.
For example in the Merlin park Meadows, now fully flushed with thousands of pink orchids amongst yellow buttercups and 'hawksbit'.
The walk distance is approx 1 Km (and back) through three adjoining meadows each with different characteristics.
