Due to the ongoing concern of COVID-19, the Surf Coast Council has initiated the closure of the ANGAIR building, facilities and activities.
This includes –
All ANGAIR business will be conducted online for the foreseeable future. For instance the Propagation Team are putting together an online plant order form so as members don’t miss out on Autumn planting. We hope to be sending this out shortly.
ANGAIR will advise at a later date when these activities can resume.
Freesia refracta and Freesia alba X F. leichtlinii are declared weeds in the Surf Coast Shire because they spread easily and threaten to invade bushland. Freesias are perennial herbs that die back in summer and produce new foliage in winter. The highly fragrant trumpet-shaped flowers appearing in spring are white to cream and pink with yellow markings, shaded purple on outer surface. Each plant has at least two corms, one below the other, thus requiring deep digging to remove them.
More details about how to control this weed can be found in the archive of Weeds of the Month.
There are a number of wonderful local Friends Groups that provide ANGAIR members and the community with opportunities for involvement.
