Costa to raise biose­cu­rity aware­ness in school

Warwick Daily News - South West Queensland Rural Weekly - - News -

SCHOOL stu­dents will this week find out how they can sup­port biose­cu­rity as they take part in a live video pro­gram fea­tur­ing the flam­boy­ant host of Gar­den­ing Aus­tralia, Costa Ge­or­giadis.

DPI pro­ject co-or­di­na­tor, Sarah Brit­ton, said Biose­cu­rity in your Back­yard would be streamed live into schools across the state.

“Solid biose­cu­rity keeps farm­ers in busi­ness, main­tains our ex­port mar­kets, keeps the com­mu­nity healthy and pro­tects our en­vi­ron­ment,” Ms Brit­ton said.

“Ed­u­ca­tion is a vi­tal com­po­nent of our ef­forts to en­sure the in­tegrity of NSW’s biose­cu­rity.”

Stu­dents will learn the four golden rules of food safety, how to care for fruit and veg­etable gar­dens at home and at school, and most im­por­tantly, learn what they can do to help pro­tect Aus­tralia from in­va­sive pests.
