Guest speaker Kylie Macreadie from Agriculture Victoria and Sally Day will co-present to discuss a range of options for improving the effectiveness of your shelterbelts in the long term.
Kylie and Sally will facilitate a discussion covering:
– how to assess whether your shelterbelt is meeting your needs
– opportunities for top-up planting and assisting natural recruitment
– how to improve the biodiversity value of your corridors
– how to manage invasive weeds and pest animals in your sites.
Sally will also run through the 20 most common shrubs in our local area and their benefits in our landscape. Members of the group will be given the opportunity to take home a selection of native shrubs to plant on their own properties (max 5 tubestock per member).
Afternoon tea provided. All welcome.
