The VSTWP had a terrific time at the Gordon Community Fair on the 11th of November 2018, with many landowners coming to see the live Serrated Tussock plants and learn the finer skills of how to best identify this noxious weed. Gordon is directly in the firing line for infestations of Serrated Tussock, with larger infestations to the east and south of the township. The VSTWP were situated next to the Moorabool Catchment Landcare Group, which was beneficial for both groups and many interested people visited both sites.

The VSTWP have been active in the Gordon and Ballan area, with Extension Officers working to the south, east and north east of the township. Farmers markets are a useful way to engage with the public, and many landowners were curious to see what the plants looked like, and had noted that they had seen signage many times over but were still unaware of what to look for.

The next big VSTWP event will be the Kyneton Show in late November 2018. If you have an event you would like us to attend, please email us at:
