Be great if we could make wine out of wild ginger? unfortunately its not much use and its invading our coast so its time to get Ginger Savvy and learn how to spot it, report it and let us know if you need help to remove it.
S.W.A.T have started a campaign to help draw attention to Wild Ginger – its a simple message…
Report it! and if you cant remove it yourself
Let us know and we will help!
Wild Ginger is in our Dirty Dozen, one of the 12 plant pests we are prioritising on the coast to remove in our reserves and special places.
Because wild ginger is so readily spread by the birds with some seeding almost year round we need private home and land owners to help by removing the ginger on your patch. If you need help just let us know and we will send a small team of Ginger Ninjas in to tackle it for you! Just text Wendy on 022 526 1972 for more information.
Here is some more information on wild ginger and why it is a problem.
