Current paddock plants - Georges Plains
19 May 2015
Producers in the Georges Plains area, near Bathurst will have the ability to increase their knowledge on local pasture plants at a Paddock Plants workshop to be held on Tuesday 2nd June. The day will start at 10.30am.
"This autumn we have seen many pasture plants in their flowering stage. There are also many interesting plants germinating. It gives us an opportunity to investigate what these species are and what value they may have in our landscape" said workshop organiser and presenter Clare Edwards. Ms Edwards is a Senior Lands Service officer – pastures with the Central Tablelands Local Land Services.
"The workshop will help producers and land managers to be able to recognize some common species and how they might manage them".
"The workshop will cover mainly introduced and native grasses with hands on activities, including a paddock walk" said Ms Edwards.
Participants will also receive a copy of the new book "Grasses of the NSW Tablelands".
The workshop is free, but there are limited spaces, and producers are asked to RSVP. The day will start at 10.30am and finish at 3.00pm. Landholders are asked to bring their own chair and mug, lunch and morning tea will be provided. This is a NSW DPI Tocal Profarm course presented by the Central Tablelands Local Land Services.
Producers are asked to RSVP, and for further information please call Clare Edwards on 6378 1700 or mobile 0428 435 615 or by email email@example.com
