Ever noticed weedy invasions when out walking in the bush and questioned why "somebody" isn't doing something about them?

That's what Barbara Parris wondered while walking along the Kerikeri River some years ago, spotting exotic plants which had jumped the fence from local gardens and become established in public reserves.

"While muttering about somebody needing to do something about the weeds, I had a lightbulb moment and realised that I should be the somebody," she said.

Chats with neighbours and an advertisement in the local paper resulted in four keen volunteers putting their hands up to form the Kerikeri Basin
