VSTWP educate at Farmers Market

The VSTWP had a great time at the Ballan Farmers Market on the 10th of June 2018, with many landowners coming to see the live Serrated Tussock plants and learn the finer skills of how to best identify this noxious weed. Ballan is directly in the firing line for infestations of Serrated Tussock, with larger infestations to the east and south of the township.

The VSTWP have been active in the Ballan area, with Extension Officers working to the south, east and north east of the township. Farmers markets are a useful way to engage with the public, and many landowners were curious to see what the plants looked like, and had noted that they had seen signage many times over but were still unaware of what to look for.

The next big VSTWP event will be the Sunbury Ag Show in Spring 2018, please see our events tab on our website. If you have an event you would like us to attend, please email us at: info@serratedtussock.com
