Lower Lachlan Landcare

Booligal & Oxley region

Objective:

Help farmers engage in sustainable agriculture practices to help maintain food security and care for the natural environment on their property

Care for our rivers and waterways and grow community resilience to respond to disasters like drought, flood and fire – support farmers and land managers so they are not working in isolation in caring for the environment on their property.

Organise volunteers in the community to come together and help resolve local environmental issues – and work in partnership with local councils, natural resource management agencies, farming groups, business and industry and researchers

Coming Up…….

2020 – 2022

Funded by the National Landcare Program ‘Smart Farms Small Grants’

Through this project, Murrumbidgee Landcare aims to support women farmers and farm partners as custodians of the land, water and life on their farms and in their communities.

We will conduct a series of eight on-farm workshops designed by and for women farmers and farm partners. The workshops will be conducted in eight locations across our region.

The workshops will each engage local women farmers and farm partners in a program of discussions, farm walks, academic insights and workshops focused on kick starting programs at a range of scales. Through the workshops, we hope to empower women to take on-farm leadership and custodian roles. We will help support participants to take on the responsible tenure of the natural resources, land, water and native species on their properties, by building understanding and confidence to take a leading role in producing healthy food from a healthy landscape.
