Landholders from across the Fitzroy Basin gathered at a Sandringham Plains property last week to learn how to restore their properties natural function and rehydrate their land and enterprise in a highly specialised two-day workshop. Both under the shed and out in the paddock, they were provided with the theoretical and practical skills needed to start improving the condition of their land.
Peter Hazell from The Mulloon Institute presented a two day workshop earlier this month up in the Fitzroy Basin, Queensland. Landholders from across the region gathered to learn how to restore their property's natural function and rehydrate both land and enterprise.
The program was presented by Roland Pease in May 2019 and looks into Australian farmers who are using ‘weeds’ to help conserve their land, particularly in areas hit by drought, where they are planting and encouraging wild plants which have been shown to retain moisture in the land.
LISTEN to the program online, from 20 minutes 09 seconds.
Presenter: Roland Pease
