Community Cuts in Oceanside

We are a community working together – apart!

There are many volunteers at work, all over Oceanside, from Nanoose to Deep Bay. You can join with another person, or work on an area of your choice. It is essential to first get in touch with your local organizer or Broombusters’s director. We can loan you loppers and set you up for cutting broom – for a day or for 4 weeks!

Your help will be deeply appreciated! In Coombs, Parksville, Hilliers, Qualicum Beach, Deep Bay, Horne Lake Road, Spider Lake area – EVERYWHERE. This is a great time to take care of the native plants where you live.
