A landcare event for young people aged 18-35 as part of the Landcare for our Future Series with Southern ACT Catchment Group
Come along to Cuppacumbalong for a morning of weeding, chats and see the gorgeous old homestead for yourself, as part of the Landcare for our Future program– getting young folks involved in Landcare!
If you’ve never been out to the Cuppacumbalong Homestead, you’d better come along on the 10th. Cuppacumbalong is a historic homestead (170 years old) located just on the outskirts of Tharwa, and the site has a long heritage of developing arts and crafts, which is ongoing.
Ali Wass is a co-owner of the property with a keen interest in rehabilitating the land, and a whole lot more. She’ll tell you all about it! We’ll be tackling some new weeds coming up in one of the paddocks next to the Murrumbidgee river, and learning about the challenges of managing a riparian landscape like this.
This will be a one-of-a-kind Saturday morning- Morning tea provided in the gorgeous homestead.
