International LandCare Member to speak Monday, January 15th!

We are excited to announce that Steve Burgess, an international Landcare member from Kandanga, Australia, will visit Grayson LandCare and speak Monday, Jan 15th at 7 pm.

Steve, the 2016 Bob Hawke LandCare award winner, resides in the Kandanga community which is very similar to our community in the Twin Counties. He will discuss how they are overcoming issues which are very similar to ours.  His current work includes an action research project on “Feeding Hungry Soils” Trialling tools, techniques and systems for building organic matter in small market gardens in subtropical Australia by increasing cover cropping and reducing tillage, without herbicide.  You can read a brief summary of the project feeding-hungry-soils.

We hope that you will be able to attend this very special presentation- spread the word!
