Local Esperance and Ravensthorpe farmers will be the long term winners with a new project being delivered by South Coast Natural Resource Management with funding recently awarded through the Goldfields-Esperance Development Commission’s Regional Grants Scheme and the WA Government’s Royalties for Regions Program.
South Coast Natural Resource Management is excited to announce that it is running its first Regional Landcare Facilitators’ Community Small Grant Programme for 2017 thanks to funding by the National Landcare Programme.
