INFORMATIVE: Stewarts Range WAB member Janet Lindsay thanks Josh Rosser of the Natural Resources Management Board for his time with a small gift.Members of the Stewarts Range WABenjoyed an informative presentation at their meeting on July 6.
Josh Rosser from the Natural Resources Management Board was welcomed as the guest speaker.
Part of Josh’s job is to work with people with weed identification, chemical rates for spraying, spraying of declared weeds if needed and fox and rabbit eradication.
He also stressed the importance when laying bait to have signs on gates, let your neighbours know, as well as doing the required paperwork.
If your dog takes a bait an antidote is now available.
A member brought in a weed but it was too far gone to be identified.
All members received a weed control handbook and Josh went through it with us. He also answered all our questions.
We were amazed how many plants in the garden are declared weeds, as well as some that should be.
Janet Lindsay thanked Josh with a small gift for his very enjoyable and informative talk and discussions.
Committee members had previously met at Hazel Hack’s home to collate the forthcoming year program.
Competition winners: Farm Animal – 1st Betty Hack, 2nd Janet Lindsay. Bloom – 1st Janet Lindsay, 2nd C. Wyers.
The meeting ended with the roll call of ‘asport that you like watching’ and these included the Olympics, swimming, tennis, netball andequestions events. Watching the grandchildren play soccer was also a favourite.
