THE last day of the successful ‘Solutions on Farm’ series of workshops run by the Bass Coast Landcare Network was held recently, the final session focussing on weed management.
More than 30 participants from 21 farms across Bass Coast and beyond participated in this workshop series designed to explore innovative solutions to farm management.
Organiser Lisa Wangman of the Bass Coast Landcare Network said it was great to see participants learn from the speakers and each other, sharing ideas and information along the way.
“It was also fantastic to work with Nick Dudley from the Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources who gave thorough presentations at all of the days and was able to help us source some great speakers to give our participants the latest updates on how to improve productivity on their farms.’
“We would also like to thank local farmers Faye Tuchton and Graeme Wood, Lee and Stephen Storti, Bob and Anne Davie, Brendan Phyland, Lew Potter and Paul Speirs, who allowed our participants to visit their properties to learn from and share their experiences,” Ms Wangman said.
The Solutions on Farm Workshop series was run by the Bass Coast Landcare Network with support and funding from The Australian Government, Victorian Government, The Western Port Catchment Landcare Network and the Port Phillip and Westernport Catchment Management Authority.
