Longwood East Landcare invites you to attend a free event

The talk will cover the use of dung beetles, including

  • What they are and how they work
  • Which beetles will suit your livestock
  • How dung beetles assist with soil compaction

Bring your boots – some walking will be involved.

Attendees will go into a draw to win a $600 dung beetle colony.

Date: Saturday 16th September, 10:00am to 12:00pm followed by BBQ.
