Pest Plant Training 


With a greater number of neighbours joining ecological halos across Kaipātiki, we are putting on free workshops about 'invasive' weeds.

Invasive weeds smother and kill native bush and habitat. Our forests, birds and other wildlife need our help to keep them healthy and happy.


Attend the training and learn about:

  • What an invasive weed is

  • How to control weeds (manually or chemically)

  • Where to start in your own backyard

  • How to use the app EcoTrack to record and monitor progress

  • How to get involved with any nearby community groups or how to most effectively talk to your neighbours about the environment's health


The workshop will be up to three hours long, with a break for refreshments in between.


After the workshop at a later date, we can help you create your own mini-restoration plan for your backyard.
