About the event
Tamar NRM is calling for volunteers to remove Ragwort from nearby roadsides in the Tamar Valley over the last two weekends of January 2023.
Now in its 24th year, the annual Ragwort Raid, run by Tamar NRM, aims to control the spread of the declared agricultural and environmental weed, Ragwort (Jacobaea vulgaris).
This volunteer event does a fabulous job preventing Ragwort from getting a major foothold in the region. The Ragwort Raids have progressed from collecting truckloads in its inception, to bag loads, thanks to committed volunteers from the community, Landcare groups, rural fire brigades, friends' groups and farmers.
Volunteers are provided with all the required instruction on Ragwort identification and removal they need.
Meet for at 9:00am sharp, and come together for a sausage sizzle afterward, at midday.
All equipment will be provided.
