Revegetation On Farms Field Day Crookwell, Laggan

Revegetation on farms field day Crookwell;

On a beautiful sunny day in May 2012 Lost River Landcare with Lori Gould from Greening Australia held a revegetation on farms field day at Tom McCormacks property, Red Hill, near Crookwell with over 50 nearby farmers attending.

It was a great opportunity to learn from someone who has been revegetating with native trees and shrubs on his property for the past 15 years. Tom was able to share his experiences with us about what methods and styles were succesful and what was not as succesful and how he has developed his own aerator machine which he uses instead of ripping.

After looking around Toms Revegetation Projects we went to look at one of Greening Australia’s latest  Whole of Paddock Rehabilitation (WOPR) Sites at  “Bolong” Golspie.

Lori discussed the funding opportunites which are available through Greening Australia at the moment, particuarly the WOPR funding. for details visit Greening Australia.
