and biological pasture management.

Letter from Lyn:
To whom it may concern,
My name is Lyn Kelson and I am a participant in The National Rural Women’s Coalition 2014 e-Leaders program, entitled Women Towards Sustainability.
As part of this program each participant has to nominate an on ground project with an end goal of raising awareness and educating others about environmental sustainability and natural resource management.
I have a particular passion for soil health so the project I initiated was to develop and conduct 3 trial plots on our farm at Drummond, comparing soil health outcomes and fodder production under 3 land management approaches.
The 3 management approaches consist of:
A: conventional management plot
B: control plot
C: biological management plot
On the first weekend of November this year I aim to have a farm open weekend where people interested in land management practices can view the trial plots, and take part in an education session summarising the practices applied to each plot and the results recorded over the trial period.
I am contacting you to request your assistance with helping raise public awareness about the farm open days and the purpose of this activity. Could you please include the attached flyer into any newsletters or public contact forum you may be involved with to reach as many people as possible to help create a dynamic audience for this work.
I am available at your convenience if you would like to discuss any aspect of this request. My contact details are listed below.
