Territory And Municipal Services are running a weed swap this weekend.
On Saturday 2 April and Sunday 3 April, between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm, the biannual Autumn Weed Swap Program will be held at green waste recycling centres, Canberra Sand and Gravel in Belconnen and Corkhill Bros near the Mugga Lane Tip.
Weed Swaps occur twice a year in Spring and Autumn to encourage residents to remove environmental weeds from their gardens. The program was initiated by the Australian Native Plants Society and is funded by the ACT Government’s weed control budget.
“Canberra residents are urged to take part in the Weed Swap program this weekend,” Ms Conolly said.
“Garden weeds can be swapped for a free native plant including ground clovers, clumping plants, small medium and large shrubs and some trees. Volunteers from the Australian Native Plants Society and park care groups will be available to provide advice on plant selection and helpful growing advice.
