The Simplicity, Goodness and Joy of Gardening - A blog by Lou Bull

“I must get creative and plan my volunteer garden class for the school kids today!  I plan on taking in a bunch of Lemonade fruit for them to try.  I love that some of the kids are trying new food we have grown in the garden.  I think some families can’t believe their children now eat broccoli. Gardening really is wonderful”.

In the NRWC’s latest blog, Lou Bull shares her thoughts on the simplicity, goodness and joy of gardening and the many adventures that her love of gardening has taken her on.  Why not visit the blog and find out why gardening is really wonderful.

Quad bike training to kill complacency

With around a quarter of a million quad bikes in Australia, it’s unlikely they’ll all be replaced in the near future, despite being the biggest killer on Australian farms.

Instead, farmers are being urged to attend training courses, install roll-over protection and ensure the use of protective equipment such as helmets.

The safe operation of quad bikes include:

  • always wear a helmet
  • keep children younger than 16-years-old off adult sized machines
  • ride responsibly
  • make sensible choices about terrain and environmental conditions
  • make sensible choices based on your ability and your machine.

The PIHSP is funded by the Research and Development Corporations for the meat processing, cotton, grains and livestock industries, as well as the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation. For more information, visit the website.

Whole Kids Small Seeds Community Grants

The Whole Kids Small Seeds Community Grants Program supports grassroots organisations and groups that are working hard in their local communities to improve children’s health and wellbeing through innovative and impactful projects.

Whole Kids Small Seeds will provide a one-off grant up to $5,000 for an individual project. Its preference, however, is to select projects that it can fully fund at lower grant amounts. In this way, it can help fund more projects in more communities.

The current grants round closes on September 30.
