Shade and shelter Workshop Shade and shelter Workshop

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

Improve the drought resistance of your farm, a workshop with Graham Shepherd Improve the drought resistance of your farm, a workshop with Graham Shepherd

Graham Shepherd, a leading NZ agronomist will explain his method during this workshop.

To reduce the effect of a drought and increase the resistance of a pastoral farm to drought conditions, there are 18 key measures that farmers can address to increase the drought resistance of their farm. These key factors provide a Drought Resistance Index (DRI) of whether a field is likely to have a high, moderate or low resistance to dry conditions. With the onset of an El-Nino and the potential for the development of a significant soil moisture deficit, it is timely for farmers to start to address those issues that can make their farms more tolerant of drought conditions.

This project aims to facilitate climate change adaptive strategies for food producers in the area. It provides opportunity for the alliance between a range of organisations in the Bass Coast and South Gippsland municipalities to further support local food producers in a meaningful way. It was developed to continue work over the previous four years with local producers by South Gippsland and Bass Coast Shire Councils.

State Government policy identifies that climate adaptation for the agricultural sector is an important issue to address for the long term prosperity of our communities. This is definitely the case for our region, with agriculture being a major industry worth ~$500M annually.

Other similar Southern Gippsland projects include partnerships like the Southern Gippsland Local Food Map - www.southerngippslandfoodmap.com.au , South Coast Local Food Coalition, Southern Gippsland Local Food Network, Permablitz Southern Gippsland and Bass Coast Rural Engagement Group.
