Local papers often features stories written and submitted by the PHBG.
We are always on the look for good news stories about people taking care of their patch, or helping others get on top of their weeds or feral animals.
We know many of you quietly get on with the job, but letting others know about your work can help motivate others that might not know where to start. Tips for overcoming common challenges are invaluable, especially for landholders new to the area.
Please contact Teele if you are aware of any local success stories. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0474 242 223.
