The first of the three Bushcare Boosters training sessions was at South Lawson Bushcare Site. Twelve people attended and it was a mix of presentation inside and a site visit.
The idea of these workshops is to give a big picture of planning and assessing your sites. The next workshop will be held at on Sunday the 5th of June and we will be looking at Fauna considerations on your site. Stay tuned to the events page to find out more.
The key take home from this session is;
- Everyone who is at Bushcare every month has something to contribute to the planning sessions and work plans for your Bushcare Group. Every group has a work plan ask your Bushcare Officer to talk you through yours.
- Information from out of area on weeds is vital as it can indicate how much attention we should be paying to emerging weeds. This site was Turkey Rhubarb http://weedsbluemountains.org.au/weeds/turkey-rhubarb and Arum Lily http://weedsbluemountains.org.au/weeds/arum-lily-2/
- having a look around to see issues past the boundaries of your site is vital when planning for your work plan.
- The South Lawson Bushcare group has done some tremendous work to safeguarding the swamp and bushland areas.
