Over the weekend a successful fundraising event was held for artists Andy Townsend and Suzie Bleach at Altenburg & Co Gallery, and Dee-licious. Many generous volunteers and artists donated their time, venues and artworks for a beautiful community event with plenty of food, wine, live music, performance and atmosphere. Over $15,000 dollars was raised for the pair, who will now get to work on rebuilding their tool collection and workspace.
Most agricultural landscapes in Australia have been subject to in excess of 100 years of various management practices. The practices have transformed the landscapes to produce food and fibre, and in many cases damaged the health of natural systems. Soil health has been degraded, rainfall infiltration and absorption is poor and vegetation is fragmented and lacking in diversity.
