Keith Bradby has just spent a day in Edenhope Victoria, where he was guest speaker at the 16th Wimmera Biodiversity Seminar. As part of the trip he saw work in Zone 2 of Habitat 141, which includes three degraded farming properties purchased by Bank MECU for restoration to ecological health as part of the larger Conservation Plan for the area. Keith had some long chats with friend and colleague Andrew Bradey, President of the Kowree Farm Tree Group that is driving the restoration program in partnership with other key groups. Discussions included how to get some 'practitioner to practitioner' exchanges happening on key topics such as restoration techniques and achieving big changes through locally-based arrangements.
