dragonflyExpressions of interest is sought - with regard to sharing our property with a small group of friendly people (approx 3-5) on a membership type basis to run a Farm Garden & Produce “Club”. It would operate as a smaller, more personal version than the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model which usually operate commercially and provide members with seasonal Food Boxes (although some do incorporate voluntary labour hours too) and are very popular in the USA and some organic farms in Australia.

Publication1This set of Guides are designed to help Landcare members and support staff plan for local Landcare groups, Landcare Networks and for specific projects. It describes what needs to be in each plan and how to run the planning process.

A clear plan makes it easier to explain your goals to others, work out who is best placed to help you and recruit the people and other resources you need to achieve what you want to achieve.

Plans provide a starting point for measuring progress and learning from action.
