Circular Ponds Landcare

The Circular Ponds Landcare is a property based group focused on the long term sustainability of the area of Mayberry where the property 'Circular Ponds' is located. The area is part of a Karst system, dominated by limestone formations included the renown Mole Creek Caves. The property has a range of above and below ground water ways, sinkholes and caves.

The aim of our Landcare group is to support the continued preservation of sensitive areas such as water ways by fencing these off from stock, installing alternative watering points, increasing shelter for livestock and habitat for native animals through the planting of native shelter belts. While the installation of wallaby fencing (and wombat gates where necessary) is a future goal to reduce grazing pressure on pastures.

These initiatives are completed in collaboration with work being completed into improving our soils through rotational grazing, multi-species crops and pasture cropping. With the ultimate aim to create a sustainable property not just environmentally, but financially as well. 

The aim of the group would be to support the development of practices aimed at reducing over grazing on pastures from wildlife and feral deer, creating shelter belts throughout the property with native species to encourage native animals e.g. insects, birds and reducing soil erosion in water ways by fencing off these areas and installing alternative watering points.  We would support our neighbours in projects they wished to pursue and share our story and knowledge through our social media channels - https://www.facebook.com/CirPonds/
