RegenWA together with Tierra Australia are hosting a ‘Landscape Rehydration Field Day’ on site in Toodyay, to demonstrate how through rehydrating the landscape they have increased their production capacity. It will bring together interested farming stakeholders for peer-to-peer discussion, a paddock walk, earthworks and a salt bush planting demonstration.
- Jack’s rehydration project ins and outs.
- A walk and talk session down the creek with demonstrations from Jack & Rod O’Bree.
- A practical demonstration of building the earth works.
- Talks from CSIRO – Dean Thomas on modelling the impact of introducing perennials, Yvette Oliver on using satellite and drone imagery of land surface elevation to inform surface water movement and interventions such as earthworks, along with saltbush planting demonstrations from Hayley Norman and Matt Wilmot.
It is an opportunity to ask questions and see firsthand how this previously unproductive landscape, has been rehydrated and is now in a system which is working to increase production capacity.
Free event! Bring your rain jacket, boots, hat and a camp chair.
