Plant swap at Moruya Markets

Asparagus Fern

Eurobodalla residents are invited to swap their weeds for plants this weekend.

Eurobodalla Shire Council’s environment team will be holding a stall at the Moruya markets between 8.00am and 12.00pm on Saturday to hand out free Bush Friendly Garden Packs, which includes up to four free native plants to locals who hand over environmental weeds from their garden.

The team will also be able provide advice to residents on plant identification or garden ideas.

Council say weeds are one of the biggest threats to biodiversity in the shire and when they spread into bushland reserves they become time consuming and costly to control as they smother native plant species, and reduce food sources and habitat available for native animals.

Locals can find out if a plant is considered an environmental or noxious weed in the Shire by checking out the Weed Finder on the Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Gardens website, or by calling Council’s environment team on 4474 1000.
