Eaglehawk Neck – Officers Quarters re-emerging!!!

Thanks to the generous efforts of volunteers, and under the guidance of Naomi Jeffs*, the lost gardens at the Officers Quarters in Eaglehawk Neck are starting to re-emerge.

Two massive islands of weeds have been cut down and a third island reduced by one third.

The next task is to consolidate the gains by spreading newspaper and mulch. ‘Six people with 3 barrows could do it in 3 hours,’ Naomi estimates.

If you have time to help on any of these days, we’d love to hear from you:

20 or 21 December 2014

Met at the car park near the Officers Quarters in Eaglehawk Neck around 9am.

(*) Naomi Jeffs is head of horticulture at Port Arthur Historic Sites.

Why not drop in to the Gardens sometime this Summer – I think you’ll notice a difference.

Kind regards,
