North Coast Small Farms Biosecurity Forum

Tropical Soda Apple Weed Alert

Whether you use your property for lifestyle, hobby farming or production purposes, weeds and pests are an ongoing concern for all landholders in our region.

Port Macquarie-Hastings Council (PMHC) and North Coast Local Land Services are hosting a free on-line Biosecurity Forum to provide up-to-date information and advice on weeds and pest management.

Attendees will hear from local on-ground managers of weeds and pests, including Council, Local Land Services and local landholders. Topics will include:

  • an overview of the Biosecurity Act
  • priority weed identification and control
  • plant pests and diseases
  • pest animals

How can you get involved?

  • A presentation is posted for you to watch now. It is available in the right hand column under watch video and will also be posted on PMHC Facebook and YouTube pages 
  • On Tuesday 23 June at 1:00pm we will be hosting a live Zoom Q&A session with the forum presenters, to answer any questions you have on the issues of weeds and pests. Register below to receive your login details.
  • Landholders taking action to remove weeds can also take part in a virtual Weed Busters Day on or around Tuesday 30 June. Upload pictures of you and your family “busting” weeds to your Facebook page and tag us with #PMHWeedBusters to share the message that Biosecurity is everyone’s responsibility.
