Pest Control Workshop
(Rescheduled from 2020)
Sunday 23rd May (9.30am to 11.30am)
New Zealand is an ideal natural environment for many kinds of pests to thrive and consequently wreak havoc with local or indigenous animal and plant life.
If you’re having problems keeping pests under control, would like to do your bit towards pest eradication or simply like to know more about the interesting topic; then this is an ideal workshop for you.
Our presenter for the event is Cam Rathe, owner of Rural Pest Control. Cam is a local expert in this field with nearly 18years’ experience gained across the region within many areas including clearing pests from some of DOCs most sensitive locations. Topics to be discussed will include:
· Various types of pests (animal and vegetable)
· Problems caused by various pests
· Eradication/control techniques
These relaxed and interactive events are very popular so booking is recommended, though not essential, as spaces are limited(see below for booking details).
Please note that this event which was originally scheduled for last year but had to be cancelled due to Covid restrictions had attracted a high number of bookings.
Afterwards you will also be able to stroll around the beautiful 1.2Km nature trail which has over 40 marvellous sculptures created for our 2021 exhibition by local and international artists on display.*
We also have our cute little coffee shop on site plus of course the Plant Centre for you to browse through.
Our knowledgeable and friendly staff will also be on hand to help with any garden related questions.
* Trail not suitable for wheelchairs or walking frames.
