LOG JAMS AND LOCAL FOOD: Innovation in river restoration and horticulture
This journey south-west of Brisbane will first visit a highly successful community engagement program showcasing cost-effective erosion control on the Upper Warrill Creek delivered by Healthy Land and Water through the Healthy Country Program. The heavily eroded sites have explored ‘soft’ engineering options with logjams and pile fields combined with revegetation and regeneration for stabilisation. Following these property visits, a barbecue lunch with local wine tasting will be served at the Bunjurgen Winery and a visit to Kalfresh, a successful horticultural enterprise for the fresh food market that showcases sustainable land management practices including on-farm composting.
Cost: $45 per person (includes transport, morning tea, lunch, water and snacks)
The schedule with timings will be provided closer to the date.
This field trip will depart from Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre at 7.00am on Wednesday, 10 October 2018.
