10 February 2017: History of Australian Agriculture Since Colonisation

February 10 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The history of Australian agriculture has been full of challenges to say the least. Early European farmers tried to recreate an English farmscape, they cleared too many trees and suffered from cyclical drought and erosion whilst knowing very little about the native foods.

Recent improved knowledge of our weather and ecology has seen farmers replanting shelter belts, windbreaks, using strip grazing and other advances to work with the land. Matthew Heffernan will be taking us through the changing Australian farming landscape and showing how commercial land use, both farming and grazing, is changing to take into account environmental limitations and considerations.

Entry cost, collection at the door:
