Every Bit Counts
Every bit counts for rural lifestyle landholders
Small farms and lifestyle blocks play an important role in managing the patchwork of natural environment across the landscape. Despite their small size, many of these properties have native vegetation, creeks and dams and other features which provide valuable habitat for native animals, provide important services to the natural environment and contribute to productive farming.
The 'Every Bit Counts!' program has been developed to provide small landholders with workshops, field days and resources on topics including weed management, habitat protection, pest animal control and opportunities to develop skills in sustainable land management.
