Calling all local businesses
Calling local businesses!!! Help us deliver a major three-year project in the Bowen/Collinsville area!!
The implementation phase for our Landholders Driving Change (LDC) project is underway!
This three-year project, funded by Department of Environment and Heritage Protection, Queensland aims to keep soil on land on properties around the Bowen, Broken, Bogie (BBB) catchment around Collinsville.
This will help to improve water quality on the Great Barrier Reef.
Our project team is in place and will shortly be starting property visits to determine how we can work with local graziers to tackle erosion, increase pasture cover and boost productivity.
LDC will also boost the local economy, and we have started establishing a pool of approved service providers to help deliver the project. In today’s Burdekin Advocate and Bowen Independent we put out a call for expressions of interest for local businesses to get involved.
Please get in touch if you can oﬀer:
- EARTHMOVING MACHINERY AND SERVICES: e.g. erosion control and land rehabilitation; pushing gravel stockpiles, loading and carting; constructing fire breaks and fence lines;
- LAND REPAIR AND ENVIRONMENTAL IMPROVEMENT SERVICES: e.g. weed management, constructing and installing erosion control structures, managing farm water supply; or
