Weeds in the Spotlight
Pittwater Council and the Pittwater Natural Heritage Association will hold a free workshop on Pittwater’s weeds next month.
Residents can learn all about which weeds are native to the Pittwater area and how to deal with them on Saturday 21 July between 1pm and 3pm.
The workshop will be held at the Coastal Environment Centre, Lake Park Road Narrabeen, hosted by local experts.
Council’s Natural Environment and Education Manager Mark Beharrell said the workshop was designed to help residents identify local weeds, particularly those likely to spread from their gardens.
“Our bushcare experts will explain what a noxious weed is and how to remove them, using tools to assist in the process. Residents will also get advice on the best natives to plant once the weeds have been removed.”
Mr Beharrell residents were encouraged to bring along an example of a weed they are having trouble eliminating as well as any questions for our local experts.
“You’ll have an opportunity to find out how to get involved in one of Council’s many bushcare groups.”
Attendance at the weed workshop is free and refreshments will be provided.
Bookings are essential and can be made online
