As a conventional farmer with 6000 acres of farmland, Tony Coote knew first-hand how dehydrated Australia’s land had become. Inspired by the work of Peter Andrews – an acclaimed farmer able to convert drought-ridden land into green and fertile pasture – Tony and his wife decided to convert to regenerative farming methods. Their success has inspired countless other farmers, leading to the establishment of The Mulloon Institute in 2011.
A new $500 million package to help protect the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area recently announced by the Federal Government has been welcomed by leading landscape rehydration and regenerative agriculture advocate The Mulloon Institute (TMI).
Seven creek structures have been installed along Mulloon Creek as part of a catchment scale project to help rehydrate and regenerate the Mulloon watershed in southern NSW.
They are the first of nearly 100 structures to be installed along Mulloon Creek and its tributaries as part of the Mulloon Community Landscape Rehydration Project being managed by The Mulloon Institute in partnership with 23 local landholders.
We've put together a couple of flyers recently summarising what we're all about.
