Grassing Bare Patches is a citizen science demonstration on three small farms in the Capital Region. It will run from September 2020 to May 2022. We hope to hold open days on-farm in May 2022.
This project is funded by the Australian Government through the National Landcare Program.

Feral Animal Monitoring and Management
A series of three webinars and short videos will be produced covering feral predator control and monitoring and protecting poultry from predators. The webinars will be supported with online information. As part of this project, our members will be able to borrow wildlife cameras to monitor feral predators on their property.

We held a Small Farms and Climate Change Forum where the participants provided feedback about the types of things they need to learn to improve farm resilience in a challenging climate. The feedback from the forum is guiding the selection of topics for a series of practical workshops (or webinars) around the Capital region tailored to the needs of small farmers and delivered by subject matter experts. Summaries and fact sheets on our website will allow a wider audience to access the information.

Our project was one of 23 projects from 148 applicants to be awarded a grant in the first round of projects through the Increasing Resilience to Climate Change (IRCC) Grants from the NSW Government.
