What a week…🌱 Thank you to all that came along to “Weeds to Wildflowers” at the Broome Library on Tuesday night we had a fantastic turnout. A big thank you to Kylie, Beau and Shane who helped pull it all together. Here’s 5 take away tips for weeds. 1. Keep your garden well mulched to prevent weeds from growing. 2. Green waste is free to drop off at the tip (if you chose to remove waste from your garden) remove seed load, bag it and kindly ask the person at the tip gate if you can place your weed seed in general waste and they will allow it to be binned for free. 3. Prevent the spread of Euphorbia/Spurges by burning them with flame wand. 4. Be mindful about hygiene when heading to and from camp sites. Brush off burrs, prickles and seed from boots clothing and car Tyers. 5. Community awareness, it is important to use resources to hone your skills to ID weeds. It is up to us as a community to help remove, monitor and report weeds. It all starts in our own backyard. Thanks to all the weed warriors out there who chip away at weeds in our community, to all the friends of the drains for all their work revegetating our drain systems in Broome and to all the people who came to learn about weeds thank you. 🌱🙏
