MEMBERS ENJOY PEST MANAGEMENT WORKSHOP WITH STEVE BATLEY
FROM MICHELLE ROSE - Woollahra Council Environement and Sustainability
Dear Workshop Participants
Thanks for your recent participation in our recent Organic Pest Management Workshop. Below are some links and photos that I hope you’ll find useful for follow up. Also there’s a request for feedback and suggestions for our events in 2019. I’ve visited the gardens a couple of times recently and was pleased to see so many of the actions discussed at the workshop already being implemented, including the fruit fly treatments and management of some plants with problems. The native bees appear to be settling in very well and were certainly active on my visits. I hope you find the Native Bee book an inspiration. I hope the garden continues to develop and flourish into 2019.
Here are the links to websites that Steve mentioned during his presentation.
Below is a photo of some of the contents of Steve’s ‘bag of tricks’ with some items you may find helpful
And further below the notes from our discussion with the Wholistic, Targeted and Specific approaches to managing pests.
We're keen to hear your feedback to help us improve and plan our 2019 environmental events.
So, if you didn’t complete the feedback sheet on the day please feel free to go online and provide your feedback.
Best wishes for Christmas and your other festive celebrations in the coming weeks!
