The Dabyminga Blackberry Action Group signed another 10 landowners to voluntary management agreements in 2016/17.
The group is now supporting 32 landowners in the Tallyrook region of central Victoria in blackberry control efforts. Together, they’re tackling a combined 300 hectares of blackberry infestations.
Local people showed their support, volunteering their time and effort at four community blackberry spraying days the action group organised during the year.
The group also worked in partnership with the Strath Creek Blackberry Action Group to organise a helicopter to spray blackberry, with several private properties pooling their resources to cover the costs.
