This field day and all other in-person Sustainable Farms events have now been postponed indefinitely in light of the coronavirus epidemic. We are working on other ways to keep sharing the results of the interdisciplinary research program, and to continue helping grow the network of people and organisations involved in on-farm natural asset management. Please subcribe to our newsletter (click "Subscribe" at the top of this page) to be kept up to date with our research and outreach program.
Rocky outcrops are a valuable natural asset that, when managed to encourage revegetation, can boost healthy farm ecosystems.
Join us for this FREE field day, BBQ lunch included, to find out more about how you can protect and utilise rocky outcrops for maximum benefit on your farm. This field day is a partnership between Sustainable Farms and Central Tablelands Landcare.
- Dan Florance, Ecologist, Sustainable Farms. Dan will share his knowledge on managing rocky outcrops and identifying reptiles and their habitat.
- Sue Wakefield, Nursery Manager & Biodiversity Officer with Central Tablelands Landcare. Sue will draw on her 30+ years experience to talk about effective tree planting for revegetation & fauna friendly fencing.
