What does your garden grow?
What does your garden grow? is a VET sector teaching resource developed by the CRC for Australian Weed Management. The course provides an overview of the importance of weeds in gardens and their impact on our unique Australian environment. These materials were written to assist the general community improve their understanding of weed issues and what they can do within their garden to assist in reducing the impact of weeds in Australia. The courses can be delivered by councils, CMA's, Bushcare or Landcare groups, community colleges and other adult education providers.
The resources cover introductory information on where weeds are a problem, how weeds spread and the theory and practice behind control measures. One of the key sections relates to planting less weedy plants in our gardens as an alternative to those with weedy characteristics.
The resource is available on CD-ROM or as a hard copy and 'train the trainer' courses are available.
