Completed: December 2014
Funding organisation: Department of Agriculture, Fisheries, Forestry (Community Landcare Grants)
Landcare Ladies engaged with three groups of partners of farmers and delivered five workshops on various technical farming related topics. The project increased the technical understanding of the partners in areas such as soils, agronomy and biodiversity, in a low pressure family friendly learning environment. The project has ultimately lead to an added confidence of farmers’ partners to be involved in decision making on farming properties leading to increased environmental and agricultural sustainability. This project also resulted in a non-formal, ongoing support network of the participants which will provide ongoing encouragement and support with possible social outlets. This was a collaborative project with SAMDB.
