Water Workshop this Sunday

“Let the rain run in, not off – An introduction to landscape function on a farm in transition”

Presented by Muckleford landowner and ecologist, Paul Foreman, and land planning consultant, David Griffith, this workshop will concisely look at how water functions in the landscape. Have your questions answered by these experts about how you want your property to  work, especially those with cleared paddocks who want them to be more healthy and productive from both farm and conservation perspectives.

Sunday 23rd September 2018, 10am to 12 noon. Join us on Paul’s property at 678 Lewis Road, Muckleford. Parking behind the house, morning tea provided.

Please RSVP to Beth via email or call on 0431 219 980.

Bassett Creek Project

The Loddon Prison crew have treated the weeds all the way from Golf Links Road up the creek into the new project area (map attached). Bassett Creek Map

During the weed spraying, the prisoners also removed old tyres from the creek. Landholders then dragged them through their properties and left on the side of the road for us to collect and dispose of.
