A development grant awarded to The Hills Bark Blower Company offers attendees site-based learning events that increase awareness and implementation of ecological practices for roadway rehabilitation.
Learn, earn points, and eat lunch in the Port Macquarie region with a site-based learning event funded by the NSW EPA Organics Market Development Grant.
The Hills BARK BLOWER Company, in conjunction with NSW Roads and Maritime Services and Penelope’s Garden, has received a Waste less, Recycle More Organics Market development grant to run site-based learning educational events to increase awareness and implementation of compost blankets/Ecoblanket for erosion control, revegetation and rehabilitation of roadways.
This includes both newly constructed and existing roadways, together with reducing soil erosion on construction sites and zones throughout New South Wales.
There has been extensive research on compost blankets/Ecoblanket in New South Wales, other Australian states and overseas. However, a greater understanding of how to specify compost for this use and why it’s so successful when done correctly is not widespread within the influential industries. The purpose of this event, therefore, is to improve knowledge and the application of best practice through site-based learning.
To book into this event visit the AILA NSW website or call 1300 BLOWIT for more information. Registration closes 30 May. Spaces are limited so make sure you book.
