Calling all farmers. Landcare needs land!
16 April 2018: Thousands of eucalyptus seedlings are looking for homes to be planted. The Farm Forestry Landcare Network needs unproductive land in the Coorong, Murraylands, and Riverland regions to turn into demonstration sites for sustainable timber forests.
The call out is part of Landcare Australia’s ‘Agroforestry Development Species Demonstration Sites’ project launched in Monarto South last year. Funded by Australian Home Heating Association (AHHA), the project aims to develop and share knowledge of silviculture within the farming industry and increase sustainability.
Farm Forestry Landcare Network chairman Ian Filmer said the project is a great opportunity for farmers to turn unproductive land into a commercial opportunity.
