Community and agricultural industry groups are being encouraged to submit an EOI for sustainable agriculture projects to be considered for possible future funding through the Goulburn Broken CMA’s Regional Land Partnerships program.
Demonstration sites showcasing new and innovative farm practices for large-scale primary producers and workshops providing handy tips and advice for new landholders on farm and water planning, biodiversity conservation, soil improvement and pest plant and animal management are some the activities funded through the Goulburn Broken CMA’s From the Ground Up project.
Anglers celebrating Gone Fishing Day at Victoria Park Lake on Sunday will have a great chance of reeling in a catch thanks to the stocking of 70 large golden and silver perch today.
Expressions of interest (EOI) are now open to farmers in the Goulburn Broken Catchment to participate in a practical short course in regenerative grazing management.
Thanks for your interest but this event is now SOLD OUT.
