VBT PROGRESS REPORT 2018

Our 2017-2018 Community Partnerships Program continues to support community-led action groups across the state to reduce blackberry in their local area.

 

The program funds groups to employ project officers to help drive their activities, which include mapping the location and extent of local blackberry infestations and working closely with landowners to help them reduce the weed.

• Our Community Partnership Program supported two community blackberry action groups in 2017/18.

• These two groups signed 49 landowners to 3-year voluntary management agreements.

• More than 1,300 Victorian landowners and managers are now registered on the Blackberry Action Database Information System.
