The State Landcare Awards were held in Clare on 12th September 2017 where BIGG won the Australian Government Excellence in Sustainable Farm Practices Award.
The award recognises an ‘individual, group or organisation that has demonstrated excellence and leadership in implementing integrated land management practices to a farm property or properties that protect soils, water and vegetation’.
The award is also strong recognition for Angaston Ag Bureau, who has operational and monitoring oversight of BIGG’s projects. Since BIGG’s inception in 2012, support from the local NRM boards (Adelaide and Mt Lofty Ranges, SA MurrayDarling Basin) has also helped ensure BIGG delivers innovate projects that respond to the needs of local producers.
BIGG will now represent SA in the Sustainable Farm Practices category at the 2018 National Landcare Awards. Well done team BIGG!
