Look who’s coming to town! And if you’re a small landholder in the Northern Agricultural Region, this event is one you wouldn’t want to miss.
Small Landholders will have a fantastic opportunity to rub shoulders with Dr Josh Byrne, ABC personality and landscape management guru, who will conduct a one-off workshop in partnership with NACC at Geraldton’s new Multi-purpose centre, on Saturday 6 May.
Dr Josh Byrne is an environmental scientist, author, television presenter and research academic. Well known for his role as the WA presenter on ABC TV’s Gardening Australia program, Josh is also Director of Josh Byrne & Associates – a multi-award winning Fremantle based consulting practice integrating the fields of landscape architecture, built environment sustainability, media and communications.
Dr Byrne is a Research Fellow with Curtin University’s Sustainability Policy Institute and the CRC for Low Carbon Living where his research activities span high performance housing, water sensitive urban design and low carbon residential precincts.
What to expect?
Landholders will learn about how they can protect the environmental health, and quality of their blocks and lifestyles as a part of the broader landscape. Kicking off at 9:30am, Josh’s presentation will focus on the environment at a small, local scale rather than the larger scale that landscape management is usually approached from.
This is a free event, however RSVP is essential by the 2 May 2017. See more event details here.
This project is supported by funding from the Western Australian Government’s State NRM Program, and the Australian Government’s National Landcare Programme.
