Information

Join us for a shade and shelter farm walk at a Fish Creek grazing farm. The farm, (owned by Jason and Sarah Keays), contains extensive revegetation and remnant vegetation protection, which was undertaken by the farms previous owners. Jason has built on this legacy as he continues to undertake revegetation works in targeted areas. Shelterbelts are not a short term panacea but a mid to long-term proposition that requires a flexible approach and site-specific solutions. More than this they contribute to equity for future generations, position farmers for a ‘low-carbon’ future, and adaptation to a variable climate. During the session we will explore; • How shelterbelts work • The productivity benefits of shelter belts • The limitations of shelter belts • Shelterbelt design • Shelterbelt establishment and maintenance Morning tea provided

Hi everyone, looking forward to Sunday, if we are lucky the rain will hold off until after lunch. Please remember to bring a chair, rain gear (just in case) and suitable footwear as we will be going for a walk. Cheers, Jill
