Gully Project – 2016

Gully Project

Gully Project 2016

We had a digger create a dam in 2007 at the start of one of the waterways on the farm, to attract more birds and wildlife. It turned into a lovely little Oasis.

Unfortunately, in September 2015, heavy rain caused a slip right down the gully, taking out the pond.

In 2016 we received grant money for 7500 trees to be planted in the 3ha gully, allowing us to take the steep, slip-prone land out of production.  First up was putting a track around the bottom of the gully, for access.
