Hoskinstown-Rossi Landcare

Filed under Directory Listing

Landcare has been active in the Hoskinstown / Rossi district for since 1993. It has helped us progress from a community that had useful but fragmentary knowledge about the most effective local strategies for integrating pasture and tree/shrub management into day-to-day farm management.

Initially, Landcare concentrated on attempting to pool and validate local knowledge about the diverse and challenging environment of the Molonglo High Plains. The area spans a number of different rainfall, altitude and geological zones from higher and wetter Rossi in the east to colder but drier Hoskinstown in the west.

From 1993-5, Landcare researched existing revegetation efforts and undertook water quality, salinity and remnant vegetation studies. A wide cross-section of the community was involved in a range of projects that initially focussed on validation of species selection, but also addresses local concerns about local pests (both weeds and animals). The Landcare group became an Incorporated Association on the 14th September 1995.
