Lower Blackwood Catchment LCDC – Keeping Water on Your Farm
10 June, 2021 @ 3:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Join us for this topical and informative discussion…
This land of ours is unique in its geological evolution, it is one of the driest continents on the planet, yet its biodiversity thrived over the millennia – a natural system had evolved to effectively store water in the ground to keep the landscape replenished and the plants alive & well.
With rainfall in the south west now on a downward trend, never has it been more important for us to understand how that natural system functions and how we can apply those concepts to aid in replenishing our farm landscapes now & into the future.
It is also an important time to take another look current surface water management methods – are they as effective as they once were & can we be doing it better?
Presented by DWER’s Adrian Goodreid & DPIRD’s Dr Richard George, this workshop will explore:
- Wetlands – a window to the groundwater
- Groundwater allocation planning: water for agriculture and the environment
- Climate and water processes in agriculture
Tools and knowledge available for management of water in agriculture, including options for surface and groundwater.
Come along and join us for this great in person knowledge building event, PLUS at the end of the presentation we’ll relax & serve some slow cooked lamb rolls to keep the hunger pains away!. It will be a great chance to keep talking about this key topic, network with our presenter and local landholders who have experiences to share.
