Following the success of a number of grazing naturally workshops which were held earlier this year, Western Local Land Services has organised another event which will look to build on the knowledge of those who attended, while introducing landscape management techniques to new attendees.
The two-day workshop will offer hands on advice for landscape management and explore the options that will help to increase production, improve the properties natural resource base, provide greater biodiversity and enhance the resilience of the property.
Dick Richardson, who is an internationally recognised leader in the practice of natural grazing to improve soil depth and health, water retention, increase biodiversity and animal production will be the presenter for the workshop, as he was for the events earlier this year.
Participants will have the opportunity to work with Dick one on one and apply ‘grazing naturally’ principles to their properties.
The workshop will be held on the Darling River, a stronghold for the Coolibah-Black Box Endangered Ecological Community.
Grazing naturally principles, when applied to the landscapes will help enhance and protect this important community.
The workshop will raise awareness of this community and give participants more information to help manage their Coolibah-Black Box on farm.
Location: REDI.E Building, 35 Reid St Wilcannia
Dates and time: Wednesday, 2 October and Thursday, 3 October. 9 am to 5 pm both days.
Field trip: The workshop will include a field trip to Mog Davies’ property, “Kalyanka”.
The cost of the workshop is covered by Western Local Land Services, who will also provide morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea both days. Participants are responsible for covering the cost of any accommodation and all other meals not specified.
