As part of the Paddock Trees project, Watershed Landcare and Central Tablelands Local Land Services will be hosting a Paddock Trees and Farm Vegetation Management workshop on Tuesday, 10 April.
We have invited Dhyan Blore, Principal Consultant at Native Biota Rural Ecology, to share her extensive knowledge in rural vegetation management and the establishment and care of native plants.
A Restoration Ecologist and Environmental Horticulturist, Dhyan has over 20 years practical experience in working with private landholders, state and local government and commercial businesses. She has expertise in bushland management, rural vegetation management, farm forestry, farm windbreak design and management and has held positions with NSW Department of Primary Industries, NSW Farm Forestry Strategy, as well as a number of roles as a rural extension specialist including working on the Box Gum Grassy Woodland Project.
The focus of the workshop will be to provide landholders with knowledge and practical information to enable them to establish and mange their own native vegetation plantings.
Some of the topics that will be covered include species selection for various sites and purposes, tree planting techniques, short term follow up and later management, including thinning, grazing, etc.
Workshop participants are invited to lead the discussion, so come along with any questions you might have.
The Paddock Trees and Farm Vegetation Management workshop will be held at 4:30-7pm Tuesday, 10 April in the Seminar Room, Australian Rural Education Centre (AREC) Ulan Rd, Mudgee.
All welcome. The workshop is free to attend and a light supper will be provided.
Please RSVP for catering purposes by Monday 9 April to Agness Knapik, Watershed Landcare Coordinator, on 0435 055 493 or email@example.com.
