Border Ranges Richmond Valley Landcare Network (BRRVLN) supports biodiversity and sustainable agriculture practices across the Kyogle and Richmond Valley local government areas.
BRRVLN and member Landcare groups have been significantly affected by drought, fires and the COVID-19 pandemic over the past few years. The 2019/2020 fires took place at the end of a period of extreme drought and COVID-19 restrictions in 2021 meant the BRRVLN Team were unable to proceed with a series of planned events, workshops and field days, or carry out regular Landcare group activities in the community and with local schools.
This grant supported a workshop in Kyogle for nine Landcare staff from Tweed, Brunswick Valley, Richmond, Clarence and Border Ranges Richmond Valley Landcare networks. With these new skills the team are now able to capture and present video on a diverse range of landcare activities.
“The video workshop helped break down the daunting task of capturing and presenting our work into bite sizes, with tips for camera settings, video grab length, optimising sound and an introduction into the world of editing. We have been able to produce a number of videos (with more to come) and social media snippets to help convey the broad range of work that Landcare supports” says Projects Officer, Gavin Tinning.
Video topics include bush skills training, bush regeneration, weed control and nest box installation. “This grant gave us the tools and training support to improve the way we share our Landcare stories with the wider community though video production” said Emma Stone, Landcare Coordinator
Check out two videos produced by workshop attendees as a direct result of the acquired skills from this grant.
