Katanning Landcare received some great news this week!

We have been granted funding for an amazing four year project through the federal government’s NLP Smart Farming Partnerships grants.

You may have heard Ella Maesepp and David Thompson on the radio recently, talking about the project, and on Facebook in this post:

In short, the goal of this four-year project is to make productive and sustainable use of degraded saline land using traditional knowledge, and making it economically viable to do so, whilst still contributing to global food supplies. The project has a long-term goal of also training farmers and traditional owners in the techniques developed.

This project is in partnership with Badgebup Aboriginal Corporation, Moojepin Farm, Wide Open Agriculture, Wagoga, and Katanning Landcare.

We look forward to bringing you more details as we complete negotiations with the funders, and finalise the details.
