About Tamar Valley Weed Strategy

The Tamar Valley Weed Strategy has received tremendous support from a whole range of groups and individuals: heavy and light industry, landcare groups, municipal councils, Tasmanian Farmers & Graziers Association, Federal and State governments and individual landowners and farmers.

We are often asked to explain just how we started, who we saw for financial and other help, and how we generally “got off the ground”. Many enquiries come from communities who are hoping to do something similar in their areas. Weeds, like the internet, know no boundaries!…
