    Roumalla Creek Focus of Natural Sequence Farming Field Days

    benoit gauzere 320The first of a series field days introducing concepts and principles behind landscape rehydration and Natural Sequence Farming will be held at Balala Station, west of Uralla on March 28th 2020 where Natural Sequence Farming expert Stuart Andrews will be present for a day of teaching and demonstrating the techniques.

    Southern New England Landcare Coordinator, Rachel Lawrence said, “With the current drought and bushfire crisis, there is unprecedented interest in restoring hydration to rivers, creeks and wetland areas on-farm, as well as maximising our ability to trap and hold water in our landscapes for as long as possible.”

    Rachel notes that in recent months, fire fighters have drawn water from sources west of Canberra where Natural Sequence Farming techniques have already restored hydration.

    Richard Daugherty is a member of Balala Brushgrove Landcare Group and will host the field day on his property ‘Balala Station’.

    “Our waterways are a priceless assets and recent conditions have reminded us how essential it is to trap and hold every drop in the landscape and make every bit count,” said Richard.

    “These two or possibly three workshops will increase knowledge and skills among the community to both rehydrate landscapes and improve their ability to manage in the face of a changing and unpredictable climate,” said Rachel Lawrence.

    “Tickets for the day have sold very quickly with a wait-list now in place, indicating the level of interest in the community for these approaches,” she said.

    “For those who missed out we hope to offer a similar workshop in Spring 2020,” she said.
