Yarra Ranges Council is running a series of webinars and in-person events this year to educate the community about weeds, their impact on the environment and ways to remove them.
There are a number of webinars scheduled for coming weeks, including:
Common Weeds of the Yarra Ranges
Sunday, 18 July, from 10am-11.30am
Environmental weeds pose a serious threat to the native biodiversity of our region. They can damage our natural landscapes, waterways and bushland areas by displacing native species, contributing to land degradation and reducing food and habitat for wildlife.
This webinar will talk you through the most common weeds found in the Yarra Ranges, how to prioritise which ones to target and the best techniques for removing them.
Sunday, 14 August, from 10am-11.30am
Most common urban weed species of Melbourne are not only edible but remarkably nutritious!
Learn how to identify weeds such as dandelion, chickweed, mallow, amaranth, wild onions, stinging nettle and many more. You'll also learn how to use edible weeds safely and incorporate them into delicious meals.
Later in the year we will be holding more webinars and events about weeds in the Yarra Ranges, including:
