A FIELD day in the north- east next month will de- liver landcare and pro- duction advice in small doses. NRM North and Lilydale Landcare are teaming up to organise the event for those with small holdings in the region. To be held on Sunday, February 17, it will feature displays, speakers and demonstrations on topics as varied as chainsaw maintenance, beekeeping, fencing, weed manage- ment, stock handling and grazing management. The field day is part of a new program for NRM North which will support smallholders to make the most of their acreage. The program includes property planning assist- ance tailored to small- holders, local workshops and field days on relevant topics, and small grants for activities such as protect- ing native bush and plant- ing native windbreaks. NRM North's biodiver- sity co-ordinator, Kate Thorn, said many small- holders in the region were new to their communities and often needed more help with issues such as land management. ''Often people don't know where to go for advice which is relevant to them, so this program will give them a go-to point for information and support,'' Ms Thorn said. ''The acreages may be small, but they add up, and many small properties have fantastic natural values on them. ''They sometimes don't know if they have an im- portant plant, a threatened species, or, perhaps, a serious weed on their patch.'' The Small Farms Field Day is being hosted by Lilydale Landcare presi- dent Jillian Weston, on her property just north of Li- lydale, where she runs al- pacas, black-faced Suffolks, Murray Grey cattle and rare-breed poultry. ''Lilydale Landcare aims to assist the small farmers in our region,'' Ms Weston said. ''Some have little or no farming background but all have an interest in caring for their land and making it as productive as possible. We hope this field day will further that end.''
