The topic for our first ‘Landcare Lounge Session’ is African Lovegrass – Nov 28th (1-2pm) & 29th (10-11am)
November 28, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - November 29, 2017 @ 10:00 amFree
Do you need some help with controlling African Lovegrass? If so, consider a detour when you’re in Bega and drop in to our first ‘Landcare Lounge Session’. The ‘Sessions’ are a bit of an experiment to see if we can provide a casual setting in which landholders can get the information and connections they need, over a cup of tea, at a time that suits them.
For the first ‘Landcare Lounge Session’ we will have two advisers on hand that have hands-on experience with African Lovegrass (ALG) control. It’s an opportunity to ask your questions and get the advice that suits your individual needs and capacity. There will also be a display with handouts and potted ALG plants (and grasses that could be mistaken as ALG), so you can leave feeling confident that you know your enemy.
When: Tuesday – 28th November 1-2pm (Vivan Mawhinney from Candelo)
Wednesday – 29th November 10-11pm (Andrew Taylor from Springvale)
Where: Far South Coast Landcare Office, 71 Auckland St, Bega (next door to Southern Farms)
If you can’t make these times, drop-in between 9am-4pm on these days and Chris Post (Landcare Coordinator) and Wayne Schaefer (Farmers’ Network) will be here to answer your questions and show you the displays.
