    Mustering the community to help re-hydrate New England

    Roumalla creekSouthern New England Landcare is hosting an introduction to Natural Sequence Farming with Stuart Andrews (Tarwyn Park Training), October 22nd 2020 at Balala Station near Uralla.

    This is the second of two events introducing concepts and principles behind landscape regeneration and rehydration.

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

    “There are places where Natural Sequence Farming techniques have been applied west of Canberra that proved essential sources of water for fire-fighting in the bushfires - another benefit of restoring hydration to these areas,” she said.

    The day will be hosted at Roumalla Creek on Balala Station, west of Uralla.

    Richard Daugherty, Balala Station owner, said “The day is a great kickstarter for the long-term vision by Balala-Brushgrove Landcare Group to create a demonstration site for landscape rehydration in the Roumalla Creek Catchment.”

    There has been high interest in the day, with the event selling out very quickly.

    The event is a part of a series aimed at increasing the community’s ability to meet climate change challenges, funded by the National Landcare Program, and is also supported by the NSW Landcare Support Program – a joint initiative of Landcare NSW and Local Land Services.
