Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Bluey and Bingo with Santa at Nurragi. Created and designed by James, Jess, Jack and Evie Skeer

Thanks to everyone out there that has helped Skylea and myself produce the AgConnect enewsletter for another year. We have also enjoyed all the conversations, learning and connections that we have made while promoting sustainable primary production throughout the Limestone Coast.

Another interesting year with COVID-19 restrictions, but fortunately this year we have managed to spend more time meeting people in person rather than seeing them through a computer screen!

With Christmas approaching, the Limestone Coast Landscape Board Sustainable Primary Production Team are keen to be part of the 'giving' side of Christmas and we have some fabulous prizes available for some lucky people that reside in the Limestone Coast.

Keep reading the two articles below to find out how you can win the following fantastic prizes we want to give away:

  • Sustainable Land Management Survey - soils tests, The Soils of Southern South Australia publication and native plant vouchers
  • Tickets and accomodation to Growing SA and WoTL conference

Are you a primary producer, land manager, advisor or community member in the Limestone Coast? If you are, the Limestone Coast Landscape Board's Sustainable Primary Production team would like to you to complete our Sustainable Land Management Survey.

Our Sustainable Primary Production program focuses on supporting responsible environmental stewardship through promoting the protection and enhancement of soil, water and biodiversity, including reducing the impacts of pest animals and weeds.

We would really appreciate your help defining priority investments for the Limestone Coast. This specific survey will cover:

  • Your background in land management and the nature of your property/enterprise
  • Climate, extreme events and changing markets
  • Soil management
  • Biodiversity management
  • Carbon Management

By completing the survey, not only will you help the Sustainable Primary Production team, but you could win one of the following prizes:

  • Free comprehensive soils tests for land managers
  • Copies of the landmark publication The Soils of Southern South Australia for advisors
  • Native plant vouchers for community members

More information about this survey can be found here.
