Demonstration Workshop: Planting Techniques for Riparian Revegetation Success

The Lower Blackwood LCDC is committed to working with landholders in the restoration of our catchment waterways through revegetation plantings of riparian species along creek lines. As part of that commitment we are very pleased to offer you an opportunity to learn from the experts on planting techniques that will ensure plants will not only survive, but thrive.  This opportunity is offered at no cost due to the generous donation of time by planting contractors Landform and by permission to view on site by the landholders where the demonstration is to take place.
