The Creightons Creek
- Gooram Blackberry Action
Group continued to build local awareness and
action on blackberry
during 2016/17.

 

CREIGHTONS CREEK-GOORAM
BLACKBERRY ACTION GROUP



The Creightons Creek-Gooram Blackberry Action
Group targets the owners of small lifestyle blocks and farms in the hilly region near Euroa, where blackberry has gradually spread across the landscape to become an increasing threat.

Landowners who sign up to blackberry control are eligible
for herbicide subsidies from the taskforce as well as financial assistance to employ a contractor to help with blackberry control.

A field day the Action Group hosted in October 2016 proved successful, with the number of landowners signing up to the blackberry control effort more than doubling.
