Looking At Landcare (19/1/2023) – Costa Georgiadis joining us in March

Hi Landcarers

Central West Lachlan Landcare (CWLL) are on the count down to our visit from Costa Georgiadis on 24 and 25 March 2023!

During his time with us, Costa will be presenting at Schools Eco Day and be our guest speaker at our Landcare Dinner at…….Bogan Gate on 24 March. Tickets will go on sale for the Landcare Dinner on Friday, 10 February. Links will be on our website and social media.

Costa is also joining us to kick off the first Homegrown Parkes event on Saturday, 25 March. If anyone was going to kick it off….we think Costa totally fits the bill!

CWLL are pleased to be hosting Homegrown Parkes in partnership with Parkes Shire Council. This is new event has a focus on encouraging families to get out into their garden patch, no matter how big or small and start growing. The day includes Crop Swap (an opportunity for people to swap excess produce), markets that have a focus on local produce, competitions for children and bus trips to a local family (semi-urban) property to find out about their success and failures. This family are actually keen to share their failures, in the hope of encouraging others to just have a go!

Register for Bus Trip here.

We have been totally overwhelmed with support from the local community and local groups keen to be involved and support the event.

If you would like to register your Expression of Interest to be involved with Homegrown Parkes Markets, Crop Swap or Bus Trip, we would love to hear from you. Stallholder Jotform can be filled in here.
