It has been a pleasure to host Birrang Enterprises at our office over the past couple of weeks.They have been running a Free L’s and P’s course which is a fantastic service. Their educator, Lyndal knows her stuff and I hear heaps of positive feedback coming from the room next door.

Three of our Skillset Green Army team members have and will be benefiting from the program, with two of them obtaining their L’s last week and working towards their P’s, which was fantastic! We know that having their P’s will increase employment possibilities for them as they seek work when they complete the programme.

We look forward to more progress over the next few weeks as people continue to work through the program. It is a pleasure for us to host Birrang to offer this service to the community. If you would like to know more about this program, contact Birrang on 0419 132 347. 

In conjunction with the Central West Local Land Services and Meat and Livestock Australia, Cooks Myalls Landcare Group are holding a field day at Cooks Myalls.

Guest speakers include, Dr Belinda Hackney, Senior Land Services Officer with Central West Local Land Services and Landmark Agronomist, Angus Hodgkinson.

The Field Day will be looking at the results of a pasture trail that was undertaken to assess how effective the addition of temperate legumes to increasing sub-tropical pasture growth, total biomass and feed quality compared to using nitrogen fertilisers.

Some of the ten species included in the trail were Prima Gland, Casbah Biserrula and Losa. The focus of the day will be on variety selection, establishment, results so far and nitrogen fixation.

The Field Day will be followed by a BBQ lunch. To RSVP, please contact Glen Woods on 0411 074 297 or email glen1@ipstarmail.com.au

The venue and speakers are booked for our Compost on the Farm Workshop in the Parkes area. A workshop at the Adavale Lane Community Hall. For more information visit centralwestlachlanlandcare.org or call our office on 6862 4914 or email me at cwllpo@hotmail.com

 Until next week, happy Landcaring!
