Pallets of fencing material being delivered across the Hotham-Williams catchment in support of revegetation and saltbush fodder grazing projects.
It’s great to see PHCC’s Greening Farms projects beginning to hit the ground, with pallets of fencing material being delivered across the Hotham-Williams catchment in support of revegetation and saltbush fodder grazing projects funded through the latest round of PHCC’s Community Environmental Grants.
One project about to get going is with Anne Kennedy from Quindanning, who is removing Spiny Rush along a drainage line and replacing it with saltbush fodder and native species. This project will see productivity returned to the site, as for many years the area has been infested with the Spiny Rush. It will also increase the native biodiversity and reduce salinity risk further down the catchment.
Anne has been tackling this problem directly herself for the last few years, but this year PHCC is supporting her project with funding for new fencing, to help manage stock access into the planting zone. We are looking forward to seeing the transformation in this site and continuing to support Anne in her efforts to remove Spiny Rush from her property.
