The Bass Coast Landcare Network and its project partners has some exciting news to share with you regarding our Climate Change Innovation Grants project, branded as Growing Southern Gippsland.
Commencing in June 2018, the Bass Coast Landcare Network has been working with key partners that will showcase 12 case study stories focusing on climate change resilience and adaptation.
Our 12-case studies have been identified and the research has commenced, and comprise of 2 dairy enterprises (one traditional and one non-traditional), 5 livestock producers, 3 fruit and vegetable growers and 2 wine and cheese makers.
The project has also commenced developing a website that will showcase the 12 case study stories. The website will also bring together decision support tools and resources into a single source that will assist Southern Gippsland landowners to make informed decisions in relation to climate change.
This website is currently in development and we expect that it will become live in April 2020.
A series of 6 supporting field days are also in planning and will cover topics such as farm planning, waste and energy, biosecurity, carbon farming, water management and digital technology.
This is an extremely exciting project for Bass Coast and Southern Gippsland. The Bass Coast Landcare Network is privileged to work with project partners RMIT University, Federation University Australia, Bass Coast Shire Council and the South Gippsland Landcare Network.
Growing Southern Gippsland is funded through the Victorian Centre for Climate Change Innovation.
