Upcoming workshops in Mudgee, Bathurst and Hartley areas
Producers are invited to increase their knowledge on local pasture plants at upcoming Paddock Plants workshops across the region.
Three workshops are planned for the Mudgee, Bathurst and Hartley areas in the next few weeks. Mudgee 20 November, Bathurst Wednesday 25 November and Hartley 4 December. Each day will start at 10.15am.
"This spring 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 workshops will help producers and land managers to be able to recognise some common species and how they might manage them".
"The workshops 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 workshops are free, but there are limited spaces, and producers are asked to RSVP. Each day will start at 10.15am and finish at 3.00pm.
Attendees are asked to ensure their vehicle is clean and if bring plant samples for identification to make sure they are securely bagged. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
