Weeds - Community workshop

4 December 2019

Weeds! We all loathe them, but how to manage them? That's the question we want your input into as we grapple with balancing the removal of weeds with the impact on the environment.

We want to will draw on diverse community, local Government and expert perspectives to build a shared understanding and inform the development of an Integrated Weed Management Strategy for the Town of Bassendean.

We're aiming for:

  • A clearer understanding of the context for weed management in the Town of Bassendean and globally
  • Consideration of existing and emerging methods and technologies for weed management
  • Discussion about community preferences
  • Consideration about the next steps for developing a weed management strategy.

Workshop

We held a workshop on Wednesday 20 November with 21 people from landcare preservation groups, Councillors and staff from local councils. It was hosted by independent facilitator Will Bessen of Tuna Blue Facilitation, with technical information provided by Andrew Fry and David Kaesehagen of Ecoscape, and guest speakers.

We're aiming for a higher level of awareness and understanding of the evidence and community preferences for weed management in the Town of Bassendean, with Ecoscape to draft a discussion paper afterwards on the preferences and strategies for weed management.

  • Read the consultation report which will be uploaded here after the workshop
