Workshop Description

Weeds are the bane of the home gardener but also a serious threat to local native flora and fauna.

Whether in private or public gardens, or in the natural environment, weeds compete with preferred plants for space, light, nutrients and water and often are designed to win in the battle.

In this community workshop participants will learn how to identify and control weeds using an integrated approach that minimises negative impacts on the environment.

  • What is a weed?
  • Issues with chemical control of weeds
  • An introduction to Integrated Weed Management – A hierarchy weed controls with chemicals as the last step, not the first
