Building rural knowledge block by block

Central West Local Land Services is once again partnering with local councils and NSW Police to run a series of free, practical workshops focusing on small acreage landholdings across the region.

Land Services Officer, Chris Robinson said that previous workshops were very well received, which resulted in further demand.

“This round of workshops has been tailored to help holders of small acreage properties make informed decisions and better understand their responsibilities,” Chris said.

The workshops will cover topics such as Local Land Services functions, property identification codes, biosecurity risks, domestic and feral animal control, appropriate use of travelling stock reserves, fencing, rural crime prevention and much more.

Expert speakers will be available to discuss the responsibilities that come with owning a small acreage landholding and how to manage and make the most out of their property.

Attending one of these informative workshops will also provide an opportunity for participants to connect with like-minded people and find out what type of services are available locally.

“While the workshops are targeted to small landholdings or peri-urban blocks, information is relevant to other landholders,”  Chris said.

“They also give attendees a chance to talk to our staff and other speakers about programs or services that may assist with the management of their land.”

Attendees of a previously held Dubbo workshop, Carol and Dal Carolan described the event as valuable.

“We definitely would recommend small landholders attend a workshop like this. It gives a great overview of how to manage your landholding, your responsibilities and animal welfare,” Mrs Carolan said.

This round sees workshops scheduled over the coming weeks in the following locations:

  • Firgrove (Dubbo) Wednesday 25 October
  • Narromine Monday 6 November
  • Tottenham Thursday 9 November.
