Capertee Valley Landcare Meeting Wednesday 4th February 2-4 Glen Alice Hall

Capertee Valley Landcare Meeting

I hope that you’ve had a refreshing break and a great holiday season.
We’re getting into gear for 2015 with Capertee Valley Landcare and the committee is meeting next Wednesday 4 Feb 2-4pm  at Glen Alice hall to discuss and plan for our activities over the coming 12 months. You are welcome to join us if you have ideas to contribute and think that you’ll be taking an active part. Or you can send me any suggestions by email and we’ll include them in our discussion.

1.      Reports – financial, secretarial
2.      Planning activities for 2015
3.      Joining Watershed, attending a watershed planning event on 7 Feb in Mudgee and an LLS consultation in Mudgee the week of 9-13th March
4.      Creating a business plan

Proposals for 2015 activities so far:
1.       We want to buy two sets of water testing gear and run a training course for members to be able to use them. One sub plan is to develop a project to test all the streams in the valley.
2.       I would like to have a series of grasses/paddock plants training sessions that takes us a step further than the introduction course we’ve already done.
3.       A Blue heliotrope and how to deal with it workshop and field day.
4. A series of walks through the late Autumn early spring months – Airly, Mt Canobla, Pipeline, Coorongooba Aboriginal Art caves (guided by Dave Ellis?)
5. Joint venture with the garden group to manage wild fruit trees in Glen Davis area.(Alex Mateer)
5. Calendar of photos of valley (Skye Barnes)

Elizabeth is going to bring a plan pro forma and with any luck we’ll complete it during the meeting. The objects of our association are (from our application for incorporation):
To promote landcare and sustainable natural resource management within the Capertee Valley.
