SO YOU BOUGHT A BLOCK?

SO YOU BOUGHT A BLOCK?

21 February 2019, 5-7pm
with Phil Moran Noosa Landcare General Manager

Weeds can serve a purpose in revegetation/rehabilitation projects. Before you get in there and get grubby, you need to do a ’weed triage’ with a cost benefit analysis and have a realistic outlook on revegetation efforts. Phil Moran of Noosa Landcare will take you from the overwhelming “OMG! What have we done?”’ to the “best decision we ever made!”.

Bring in weed/s for identification and management ideas!
