The guided tour will include:
- Overview of native nursery production methods including seed collection, propagation, plant raising and planting.
- Organic household food production from vegetable gardens and orchards (with chickens)
- Native timber production integrated with biodiversity
OPTIONAL MORNING TOUR of Bambra Agroforestry Farm: Join Rowan Reid for a tour of the Bambra Agroforestry Farm. Rowan Reid planted his first trees in 1987. His idea was to establish an outdoor education centre for agroforestry where landholders could explore the opportunities to integrate commercial trees into their farming landscape for conservation, aesthetics and profit. "I wanted to make the act of planting trees – and cutting them down for high quality timber – attractive to farmers."
