IMG_5205-600px.jpg

You’re invited to join regenerative farmer Martin Royds for a Summer tour of his Jillamatong property near Braidwood this winter.

Martin Royds has successfully created a productive and regenerating agricultural landscape at Jillamatong over many years of managing it, and is keen to show you how the plants and animals now work together to build a profitable and diverse ecosystem. 

The tour will cover:

  • background information and map viewing

  • how to read the landscape

  • how effective compost is on farm productivity

  • how grazing management affects biodiversity

  • how insects, reptiles and birds are influencing the farm

  • how repairing the ‘chain of ponds’ is rehydrating the flood plain

  • tree plantings, weed management, restoring soil life, and more!
