Blackberry control continues to progress in the Eden Park area of Whittlesea.
EDEN PARK BLACKBERRY ACTION GROUP
The Eden Park Blackberry Action Group supports landowners across a diverse mix of properties ranging from broadacre farms to lifestyle blocks. Some are motivated to control blackberry to improve agricultural values while others seek to improve biodiversity and ecological values.
In 2019-20 the action group’s project manager signed three more landowners to 3-year voluntary management agreements and visited nine participating properties to check on their progress.
Landowners were supported with hiring a spray rig and one landowner was helped with their successful submission for funding from the Melbourne Water Stream Frontage Program for weed control, revegetation and fencing along Barbers Creek.
