Harrington Coastcare

a subgroup of Manning Coastcare

The reformed Harrington Coastcare Group had its first working bee on Monday 3 July 2017 when an intrepid band of half a dozen or so braved the chilly morning air.  They worked around the parking area at the Crowdy Road entrance of the Harrington rainforest, and achieved noticeable results. The group brought their own tools, with digging and cutting tools proving most useful.  Manning Coastcare provided lightweight UV resistant "flouro" shirts.  


Working 1st Monday and 3rd Friday of the month

The group currently has working bees from 9 am to 11 am on the first Monday and third Friday of each month.  Two hours of weeding is a good workout so you are welcome to bring a chair and some morning tea for a break!
