Our second Mini Field Day for autumn will be running this Friday and we're looking forward to welcoming the participants to Mulloon Creek Natural Farms.
The Mulloon Institute has been awarded $3.8 million over five years by the Federal Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources, Hon. David Littleproud, for its project to rehydrate Australia, improve the environment, boost farm productivity and engage the community.
At Mulloon Creek Natural Farms our eggs come from happy hens who have loads of room to roam, with only 250 birds per hectare! They can really stretch out while enjoying the sunlight and free access to pasture. Perfect!
A broad range of projects are available for Honours, Masters and PhD students to undertake post graduate studies in flora, fauna, hydro and soils and production systems as part of the Mulloon Community Landscape Rehydration Project.
The Australian National University currently has an opportunity for Honours students to take part in follow-up work on the 2015-16 Macroinvertebrate study that sought originally to determine and measure the biological and physical parameters of water quality in the Mulloon Creek catchment.
The Mulloon Institute hosted part of the National Youth Science Forum again this January, with two groups of 14 students interested in Agriculture and Environmental Science visiting Mulloon Creek to learn about our work in landscape rehydration and regenerative farming practices.
Our offices will close from Friday 21 December 2018 (COB).
We will reopen on Monday 7 January 2019.
