Field Days and Workshops
Building the skills and capacity of our community to effectively respond to land management issues is an important way of improving the natural environment in Hume. You can play your part and build your knowledge and skills in land management by attending one of our regular field days and workshops that focus on rural land management. Most events are free, however bookings are advised as places may be limited.
Plants of Melbourne's Western Plains is a gardener's guide to the flora indigenous our unique landscape. The book contains many wonderful colour images of these plants and the wildlife they attract, where and how to grow them, local supplier lists and other great resources. It is great asset to anyone who is serious about native revegetation.
Resource is Council's quarterly rural environment newsletter, providing information on weed identification and control, landowner grant and incentive programs and community workshops and training.
