Residents are encouraged to get involved in a free weeds workshop in Pokolbin next month being delivered by Cessnock City Council and Hunter Local Land Services.

Council’s Weed’s Coordinator Barry Shepherd and Weeds Officer Maria Edmonds are looking forward to the workshop as it will give residents access to practical advice and information.

Mr Shepherd is keen to meet with residents and help answer any questions they may have.

“This is an opportunity to share information about how Council can help you manage your weeds.”

“We are encouraging residents to bring along a weed or two from their own property for identification purposes. Residents who decide to bring along flowers, leaves, seeds and roots must do so in a sealed container.”  

The Hunter Local Land Services Biosecurity Officer and Veterinarian will also be on hand to explain the best way to control pests and report livestock diseases.

The workshop will run from 9am to 12.30pm on 8 March 2018 and morning tea will be provided. Please register at https://hunterlls.wufoo.eu/forms/z2o969u0kmc58q/.
