The VSTWP have continued their Landcare Field Day Assistance Grants program that aims to help groups host a serrated tussock related field day. This program offers Landcare groups/networks the opportunity to receive a one off grant of up to $500 to sponsor the convening of serrated tussock focused field days.
The grant is available to any community group group that is incorporated and appropriately insured for such events, and will be useful in raising the awareness to landowners and managers about the threat posed by this noxious weed. To further support the field day, the VSTWP will provide extension material on serrated tussock identification and management, and offer the presence of a VSTWP Extension Officer to impart serrated tussock education and management advice.
Please download the guidelines and application form below and submit to our Executive Officer, Matin Deering: Martin.Deering@ecodev.vic.gov.au. We look forward to working with you to build the capacity of communities to identify and manage serrated tussock.
