Landscape Rehydration Field Day

Thank you to everyone who joined The Mulloon Institute team for The Mulloon Institute Field Day and Expert Panel Day.

The event was a great success, with over 130 people joining us for a day and touring through the early stages of the Mulloon Creek Landscape Rehydration Project.

The day consisted of a tour of the floodplain and a guided walk through the on-farm creek interventions. Guests had the opportunity to speak to range of highly experienced guides, such as scientist, like Dr. Michael Wilson from the Murray Darling Authority, naturalresources Managers like Peter Hazell, and landholders who have had long experience in Natural Sequence Farming, like Martin Royds andTony Coote. The guides were backed up by Peter Andrews, pioneer of natural sequence farming, who visited each of the groups as they walked up the creek.

After lunch, the MI team took the crowd through the proposed plans for the Mulloon Community Landscape Rehydration Project. This was followed by an expert panel discussion in which field day participants had the opportunity to fire questions at the panel. Including those mentioned above, the expert panel comprised former Federal Minister for Water, Gary Nairn, ANU Geomorphologist and Soil Scientist, Dr John Field and ANU Entomologist and River Ecologist, Dr Paul Cooper.

The level of engagement on display during the day is a testament to the high levels of community interest there is in the MCLRP. Many thanks go out to those who could join us for the day, and for the continued input, feedback and invaluable interest in the development of this important project.

A feedback survey will be distributed to those in attendance so that we can better understand the community's feelings towards the ideas and issues presented at the field day, and so we can continue to improve the way we run these events.

The date of the next field day will be announced early next year.

Other Learning Experiences

Our education program offers a wide range of learning experiences including:

Field Days Read More...

Offered as both an annual event and by arrangement for private groups, Fields Days provide the public with an opportunity to learn about the research, regenerative work and biological farming methods currently in place on the property. At each Field Day we showcase different aspects of our farming and land restoration ventures. For instance, you may be participating in a guided tour of our landscape rehabilitation projects, seeing how 12,000 free range chickens live, or getting your hands dirty learning to make compost, plant trees or grow food.

School Tours Read More...

By integrating the classroom curriculum into the farming environment, school tours increase the student’s learning on animal husbandry, farming methods, environmental issues and land care.

Creek Tours Read More...

Walking Mulloon Creek with a guide is the best way to learn about the principles of Natural Sequence Farming and how it repairs our waterways, restores the riparian zones, and hydrates the landscape.

Courses Read More...

Working on the principle “I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.” Courses are generally designed to be hands-on and provide participants with practical skills and development that can be put into action when they return home.

Intern Program Read More...

Our internship provides keen bean, go-getters with an opportunity to exchange their time and labour for learning. Interns become part of our farming family during their internship working beside the managers of our different enterprises and gaining valuable hands-on experience, whilst learning about biological farming practices and land regeneration.
