September 10th- Subtropical Rainforest Plantation Field Day
All welcome, please RSVP by September 3rd 2016. See attached flyer for more information.
The SFFA is holding a collaborated field day/ workshop with the Lismore City Council, Wetland Care Australia on one of our project sites located at Gundarimba, NSW. Rehabilitation works currently underway are from a combined effort from the landholder and the 3 main project partners towards rehabilitation of the riparian zone that surrounds the site, planting buffers and restoring native corridors in a mostly cleared landscape. The landholder is particularly keen to have neighbours attend to demonstrate the integration of farming and land rehabilitation is achievable.
