This is a chance to learn from a grazier building on generations of family farming history in the Mary Valley and the experience of new landholders who have embarked on rehabilitating eroded gully, creek and river banks following the repeated flood events of 2010-2015. 

Glenda Pickersgill is a long-term solo operator of grazing properties in the Mary Valley and Kimbombi, and has developed a set of grazing and pasture management practices based on holistic management. Additionally, Glenda has worked for decades to protect and restore creek and riverbanks, triggered in part by experiencing the damage caused by the 1992 flood.

On the neighbouring property, Craig and Therese have undertaken an impressive tree planting project to stabilize gullies and the main river bank, with assistance from the MRCCC and Noosa Landcare. The MRCCC is working to encourage landholders in that part of the river to work together to make a ‘demonstration reach’ where neighbours cooperate to adopt best practice for managing streambank erosion and the water quality impacts of their properties.

Bring a hat and sturdy shoes, and be prepared for the weather on the day. Please be aware of biosecurity concerns and do not transfer soil or plant material from your property to theirs. You are welcome to bring a plate of food to share and stay for morning tea and a chat afterwards.
