The Grootvaderbosch Conservancy is currently working in partnership with Working for Water to employ over 130 workers to clear Invasive alien plants. The project achieves social and environmental objectives.
Today, we trained Eden municipality staff in invasive alien clearing techniques. We approached them when we observed ways to improve alien clearing techniques on road verges. Improved herbicide application and mixing techniques were discussed as well as effective cut stump techniques. More effective techniques will make a massive difference to efficiency which is so important given their large scope of work. Thanks to Eden for meeting with us and we hope we have assisted you in keeping our road verges clearer of invasive.
