Who: Colin Seis from Winona will be talking about resilience from a land management and personal perspective. The Seis family was one of the early pioneering families of the Gulgong district, located in the central tablelands of NSW. We will hear about how land management at Winona has evolved over time to maximise resilience and production.
We will also be joined by Liz Clarke and James Diack from Soils For Life who will be talking about resilience from a social and landscape function perspective.Soils For Life supports Australian farmers in regenerating soils and landscapes to build natural and social capital.
In the afternoon Soils For Life will lead us through a workshop to learn some basic soil monitoring techniques to understand landscape function. We invite you to bring a cup or two of soil from your property to test soil pH and soil structure.
