It seems that to rely on the town residents to volunteer we will fall short of the numbers, thus failing.
So we are appealing to our Farmers to provide half a day at either site, hoping to get one partner available, or within a family group partnership at least one of the work force to be spared for half a day.If not available, the loaning of a named back pack sprayer will be most welcomed for each spray location.
Your help on the day will be much appreciated and you can carry out other duties apart from spraying. Spraying this weed in the next few weeks will stop flowering and seed set and thus prevent birds from spreading the seeds further afield.
If we as a community don’t take action to control this weed where it is now, don’t worry, in time it will slowly come to you! To assist with the coordination of these events can you please respond to Catherine Watkins in Kukerin or Claudia Hadlow at the Landcare Office on 98634225 or 0429612447 before Friday 17 June or drop into the Landcare Office.
Thank you in anticipation for your help in controlling this weed! Rain or pending rain will defer this event.
