On Demand – Biosecurity in Our Backyard – Hosted by Costa (Stage 2, Stage 3)

On Demand

Costa talks about Biosecurity Goodies & Baddies. Lots of great tips to be a Biosecurity Warrior in your own school garden or at home.


Come with us for a recorded live video excursion into your own backyard, hosted by Costa Georgiadis or you may know him best as “Costa the Gnome” from get grubby TV, as we talk about Biosecurity Goodies & Baddies. We will talk about how to tell the difference between Biosecurity Goodies & Baddies and meet Biosecurity Warriors who have exciting and interesting jobs using science, technology, research – even dogs – to stop diseases that make our people, our crops, our native animals and insects sick. Come on our biosecurity journey and learn about bees, insects, chooks, pets and how we can all be Biosecurity Warriors by looking after our own backyards.

We also visit the Sydney Royal Easter Show to learn how we can keep our food safe at home in the kitchen and keep our fruit and veggie patch healthy at home and at school. You will be introduced to other Biosecurity Warriors like Sally the weed sniffing dog who protects our beautiful natural environment by keeping away the bad weeds. Costa will leave you with lots of great tips to be a Biosecurity Warrior in your own backyard.
