What people said about their experience

As a founding member of Friends of Knockan Hill Park Society, I have organised many invasive species removal is, and we have only been able to get a few people. So this was amazing to see so many people working to preserve this beautiful sanctuary. It is really a tribute to the Green Teams Organisation. Thank you so much!

I felt it was a lot of fun! Hard work definitely, but it was rewarding to see the progress made.
