Master Tree Grower coming to Tamar - Trees on Farms Field Day

Location: Lilydale

Tamar NRM and the Australian Agroforestry Foundation invite local landholders to hear from founder of the Australian Master TreeGrower Program and published author, Rowan Reid. Rowan will lead the discussion at a Trees on Farms Field Day on the 10th October in Lilydale, followed by an evening function.

Rowan has been working with Australian farmers for more than 30 years, directly involved with delivering over 100 Master TreeGrower courses around Australia, involving more than 2000 landholders. He is the managing director of the not-for-profit Australian Agroforestry Foundation and continues teaching Agroforestry at Melbourne University. In August, Rowan’s latest book "Heartwood - The art and science of growing trees for conservation and profit" was published by Melbourne Books.

 To register for one or both of the 10th October events, contact Tamar NRM on 6323 3310, email tamarnrm@launceston.tas.gov.au  or click here for more details. Numbers are limited.
