We need our soil and water on farm!

A bus trip to show case good erosion and water management in our area - highlighting what can be done using existing on farm resources. Also a chance to workshop ideas for how to mend a problem site on the day.
  • When 24 Feb, 2017 from 10:00 AM to 03:30 PM (Australia/Sydney / UTC1008)
  • Attendees Anyone wanting to learn cheap and effective methods for repairing erosion and slowing water on your farm.
  • Add event to calendar iCal

We are going to showcase some of our success stories here in the Central Tablelands in February 2017.  We have invited Cam Wilson of Earth Integral to provide running commentary on the bus so that we can all learn more about the do's and don't s of erosion management and problem solve an issue for anyone who wishes to volunteer their property with a problem site. More infomration can be found here.

Historical erosion processes have significantly altered the underlying hydrology within our landscape, in turn affecting the resilience of production and ecological systems to this day. Relatively simple measures can be undertaken within the existing regulations to restore some of these dysfunctional processes and boost primary production and ecological values in the process.

During this field day we will visit two local sites on which some great rehabilitation success has been achieved as well as a degraded site to discuss practical rehabilitation possibilities and design considerations.

We will be joined by guest presenter Cam Wilson, who will bring his extensive practical experience, both at machinery and human scales, combined with postgraduate studies at the ANU, to provide a unique insight into each of the sites. Cam’s experience in this field includes the management of Peter Andrews’ creek rehabilitation project on Mulloon Creek, erosion control education, planning and practical implementation with numerous Landcare groups in the Southern Tablelands, and the implementation of significant wetland and floodplain rehabilitation projects within the current regulatory framework.

Cost will be free - if this sounds like something you would like to be involved in please contact us at centraltablelandslandcare@gmail.com
