Our Community Partnership 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 activities including mapping the location and extent of blackberry infestations and working closely with landholders to help them reduce the weed.

•We supported two local blackberry control action groups in 2020-2021.

•This enabled them to employ project officers who visited 61 properties, signing 8 more landholders to 3-year voluntary blackberry management agreements.

•The project supported communities including Eden Park, Humevale, Kinglake West, Silvan and Wandin East to better advocate for co-operative blackberry management across all land tenures.
