Free vegetation management workshop for farmers

ARE you looking to improve the condition of native vegetation on your farm and manage threats from weeds, pests and fire regimes?

Healthy Land and Water is hosting a free workshop in Blackbutt for farmers and landholders from Blackbutt, Yarraman, and South Nanango.

The workshop will aim to help rural landholders to understand more about their property's native vegetation and biodiversity.

Landholders will be given advice on how to manage risks to property infrastructure, production areas, and wildlife habitat from bushfires.

There will be a variety of presentations throughout the workshop, such as the role of native vegetation in the landscape, managing risks to life and property from bushfires, fire ecology and how fire has shaped the environment and local management responses.

As part of this workshop, attendees will be provided with a free property map to map infrastructure, local vegetation types, land zones, and fire management features.

Attendees will then learn how this information can support their management goals and objectives.

The Native Vegetation and Fire Management Planning workshop will be held at the Taromeo Rural Fire Station in Hart St, Blackbutt on Saturday June 1, from 9am until 4pm.

Morning tea and lunch will be provided. Numbers are limited and bookings are essential.

The workshop is being delivered in partnership with the SEQ Fire & Biodiversity Consortium, Rural Fire Service and South Burnett Regional Council.
