Project Funding


In Autumn 2022 we partnered with Otway Agroforestry Network to run the Master Tree Growers course. It’s an 8-day, field based course for landholders interested in planting and managing trees and shrubs for conservation and profit.

The course covered a wide range of topics that reflect the interests and aspirations of the participating landholders, such as establishing and managing of trees on farms for shelter, aesthetics, biodiversity, soil erosion control, high quality timber and other forest based products. There were 28 graduates.
