Description

Council has been working together with government agencies on a Rivers to Ranges project to protect vulnerable natural ecosystems on public land from weeds. 

Come and learn how to identify and manage weeds on your property, you will explore the role of gardens and how they can spread invasive species and how we can safely dispose of weeds in our backyard. You will also discover some amazing alternative native species to plant instead of common weeds that we find in our garden.

The workshop will include a plant giveaway to participants, so register your interest today as numbers are limited!

We aim to ensure that people have equal access to our workshops, please give us a call on 9433 3711 to discuss how we can make these sessions inclusive and accessible for you.
