Growing a Living Landscape

Suggested Reading Suggested Reading

21 November 2016

​The Landcare Living Landscape project is an environmental and educational initiative to increase biodiversity, capture carbon and rejuvenate native habitat on the Shoalhaven River properties. Managed by the rural cultural institution, Bundanon Trust, the project establishes permanent native forests on cleared or partially cleared land to reduce carbon emissions. 

This Emissions Reduction Fund project is registered under the human-induced regeneration of a perm​​anent even-aged native forest method​, and will reduce emissions by planting trees and developing native bush land to regenerate native forests on the land. The regeneration of native bushland overtime will improve soil quality, increase biodiversity in the area and reduce carbon emissions.

The project is run on the 1100 hectares of land gifted to the Australian people by the artist Arthur Boyd and his wife Yvonne Boyd in 1993, with a focus on preserving and developing more native bush on the Bundanon Trust properties. Bundanon is an important refuge for threatened flora and fauna species, and the project will be incorporated in the Bundanon Trust educational program to highlight the importance of protecting the environment for future generations.
