Upper Lachlan Landcare Chair Person, Nerida Croker, recently presented Breadalbane Plains Landcare Pioneers, Tony and Sue Morrison with an award for their long and valuable contribution to Landcare in the Upper Lachlan Catchment at a dinner in their honour at the Breadalbane Hall. Tony and Sue have been successfully running properties in the Breadalbane district for the past 50 years and are now retiring to a smaller acreage near Goulburn. The couple have been at the forefront of sustainable agriculture movement in the district and have been heavily involved with the local landcare group and at the regional level. The Breadalbane Plains Landcare Group organised a guided tour by Tony Morrison of the property South Raeburn with attendees getting a first hand look at all of the incredible work the couple have put into the property and a run through of their management plan. After the tour around 60 people attended a bbq at the Breadalbane Hall in honour of the couple. The property has been sold to John Peaty from Sydney and Wayne Yeo will continue on as manager. Tony and Sue have promised to stay involved with the community in their retirement.
