Several members of the Tarrangower Cactus Control Group trekked down to Government House last Friday because the group and Ian Grenda were both finalists in the Victorian Landcare Awards for 2017.
We were very impressed by the stunning building and surrounds, and very excited just to be there. But we were soon to be totally overwhelmed by winning the Fairfax Media Landcare Community Group Award, and Ian receiving a High Commendation for the Australian Government Individual Landcarer Award.
Congratulations to all our past and present ‘Cactus Warriors’ who have helped us in our war against Wheel Cactus over the past 12 years. This award acknowledges and rewards us for our tenacious energy, time and commitment. Well done Ian and everyone!
