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.
With this splitting up of larger scale land management units into smaller farms many regions are seeing an increase in threatening processes contributing to negative environmental impacts.
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.
Every bit counts!
The 'Every Bit Counts!' program has been developed to provide 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.
Who is this program for?
This program is for landholders on 2-20 hectare properties in areas around the Hawkesbury, Penrith, Hills Shire, Camden, Wollondilly and Central Coast region. Whether you are a hobby or small scale professional farmer or own a rural lifestyle property, this program will help you better understand the value your property has on local native plants and animals.
