Find out about a new regeneration project starting in Snowtown. The Snowtown Community Management Committee is restoring a 3.8 hectare paddock in the Snowtown Parklands with native perennial grasses and herbs.
Known as the Meeting Place Project, the paddock will be representative of four different ecosystems surrounding Snowtown, returning the flora that once existed in the township. It also aims to bring back plants now extinct in the region, such as Maireana sedifolia or Pearl Bluebush, which only exists along a few roadsides.
The idea is for the paddock to be a meeting place where people can learn about the region’s flora; what is still here, what has been lost and how the First Nations people would have used them.
On-ground activity starts in 2023 with direct seeding and tube stock planting.
In this workshop, you’ll learn about:
• Four different regional ecosystems: Hummocks Ranges, Hummocks Plains, Black Point Ranges and Condowie Plains
• The benefits of direct seeding local native perennial grasses and herbs
• How to return biodiversity to a heavily-degraded paddock.
