After many months of anticipation and prep work, I am excited to announce that the Weed Action Community Resource is up and running and available to you as a Whangarei Heads community member.
The aim of the community resources is to make it as easy as possible to tackle the weed problems in your backyard or local community. This is done by loaning the tools, equipment, safety gear, and providing the herbicide for our priority weed species. We also provide all the ‘how to info’ so you know exactly what you need and how to use the equipment and herbicide that you require.
We have hand tools, spray bottles, gel applicator bottles, knapsacks, overalls, safety glasses, nitrile gloves, spray masks, a choice selection of herbicides and more!
As well as your own backyard action, the gear is also available for group weed events if you want to tackle a bigger area with a bunch of like-minded individuals. It has recently been in use to great effect for the Wharf Rd Weed Action group, who tackled privet and eleagnus along the coast. Northtec students also contributed by tackling eleagnus, cotoneaster, wild ginger, agapanthus and Taiwan cherry at Whangarei Heads School.
For more info or to arrange a pick up,
