Kyogle Landcare Nursery is seeking support with seed collection


The Kyogle Landcare Nursery aims to supply a diversity of native plants as tubestock to Landcare projects and landholders in Kyogle and surrounding areas. The Bush Connect Climate Corridors project in the Roseberry Loadstone area will be requiring plants across the next 5 years and the nursery is particularly determined to source seed as local as possible to that area. They would be grateful to receive assistance from landholders, particularly in the North West of Kyogle for seed contributions. To assist this interest they have developed a seed calendar for natives on the wish list.

For the calendar that can be expected to seed over the late winter spring period CLICK HERE.

The Landcare nursery is located in Kyogle just north of the Fawcetts Creek crossing on the Summerland Way next to the Tennis Courts and is open Tuesday mornings for 9-11am. They will be settling up a seed deposit box at the gate for outside of these hours. Seed contributions are requested to be accompanied by Species name and the location from where they were collected.

FRRR Webinars

The recordings of the webinars, as well as additional resources, can be downloaded from the Community Group Resources page of the FRRR website.

Bringing back the hollows


Thanks to the Kyogle Hospital Mens Shed team who have been hard at work making nest boxes for a wide range of hollow dependant species including boxes for Gliders, Possums, Microbats, Rosellas, Lorikeets and Owls. David Hall, volunteer coordinator of the Mens Shed, says the workshop provides a great social space for men where they can keep busy and support a meaningful project while in temporary residence at the hospital. Many of the boxes are odered in advance for specific habitat restoration projects but they are also available to the public through the Kyogle Landcare office for a minimal material cost price. The office is located next to Green Mountain Meats, Summerland Way Kyogle and is open Tuesday and Thursday 10am-2pm.
 




 

The Ripple Effect - Understanding the impact of suicide on farming communities.

 

In a typical year 2,500 Australians will die by suicide.Too many of these are from the farming community.

For every suicide and attempted suicide, a ripple effect impacts friends, family, colleagues and entire communities. Many of us have been affected by suicide in some way—and yet, because of the stigma surrounding suicide, most of these experiences remain untold.

The Ripple Effect is an online intervention designed to investigate what works to reduce the self-stigma (negative attitudes you have towards yourself) and perceived-stigma (negative attitudes you believe others have about you) among males from the farming community, aged 30-64 years, who have been bereaved by suicide, attempted suicide, cared for someone who attempted suicide, have had thoughts of suicide, or been touched by suicide in some other way.
