FILM: 'Buffers, Sponges + Moderators'

Staff from The Mulloon Institute and Mulloon Creek Natural Farms attended and supported Rivers of Carbon's recent premiere screening of 'Buffers, Sponges + Moderators' which looks at the importance and value inmanaging swampy meadows and wetlands, featuring our very own Project Officer Cam Wilson and Pete Hazell's other half Dr Donna Hazell. It was a great inspiring film with much valuable networking taking place after the screening.

EVENT: 'Join the Climate Conversation'

The Mulloon Institute and Mulloon Consulting, Contracting & Certifiying were also represented in Yass on 25 May at the 'Join the Climate Conversation' forum hosted by Boorowa Community Landcare Group and Hovells Creek Landcare Group.

The event focused on how rural communities can make a difference with forum speakers including ANU paleoclimatologist Dr Bradley Opdyke, Cooma regenerative farmer Dr Charles Massy, soil scientist Dr Christine Jones, and social scientist Dr Siwan Lovett who looked at how and why global warming is occurring, how regenerative agriculture could be part of the solution, how useful carbon cycle is, the benefits of revegetation, and how communities can work together to reduce the impact of global warming. 

Kelly Thorburn and Luke Peel represented us on the day with a table display that generated interest and sparked up some great conversations, including one with Eden-Monaro politician Mike Kelly.
