    Trees on Small Farms update

    TOSFSmallThe Trees on Small Farms project is well underway with unprecedented interest and participation!

    SNELandcare Coordinator, Karen Zirkler said, “Thirty-four participants attended the planning workshop in September 2017, where they heard from guest speakers, and planned their tree projects on maps kindly provided by the Northern Tablelands Local Land Services.”

    “Some were new to the district, and many had never undertaken any landcare or tree planting projects before,” said Karen.

    “Soon after this, we received 43 applications, which were assessed in mid-October, with 26 of those funded before the money ran out,” said Karen.

    Site visits were then conducted, mostly by SNELandcare’s Agroforestry Peer Group Mentor team, to help participants finalise their plans and sign their Landholder Management Agreements.

    On-ground works are now underway on many of the participants properties. The project is due to be completed in April 2019.

    This project is funded through the National Landcare Program with support from the Northern Tablelands Local Land Services.
