Broom Busting, 2014
Posted By Ken Walker
Each year during the month of May our Club holds another Community Service project called Broom Busting. We join forces with a group called Broombusters to help eradicate the alien invasive plant called Scotch Broom which has devastated our landscape here on Vancouver Island. We organize work parties to go out and cut down this plant while it is in bloom. By cutting it at this time of year, it significantly reduces the chances of it returning the following year. This is hard work (approximately 3 hour commitment), but very worthwhile since our community here in Qualicum Beach is now near “Broom Free”. Stay tuned for further announcements on dates and times.
