Mount Alexander Shire Council is working with Harcourt Valley Fruit Fly Action Group to raise awareness of Queensland Fruit Fly and steps to prevent an outbreak through a series of workshops for gardeners, backyard fruit and vegetable growers, schools, small scale farms and horticultural enterprises.

The sessions will be held in Maldon, Newstead and Castlemaine in late November 2019. Harcourt Valley Landcare Group will host a session in Harcourt in February 2020.

The workshops will cover fruit fly identification, traps, what to do if there is an outbreak, and more. Guest speakers will also share first-hand experience of the impact of fruit fly.
