WHO WE WORK WITH
PPS is a partner with Project Platypus, this is a community based Landcare network working in the Upper Wimmera Catchment supporting Landcare groups and landholders across the region to improve catchment health. Project Platypus undertake a substantial amount of works including landcare support, revegetation, protection of remnant vegetation, erosion control works, invasive plant and animal control, project management, hosting environmental and sustainable agriculture events and other environmental services.
PPS has strong working associations with the relevant Catchment Mangement Authorities across the south west and central highlands regions. Victorian CMA's were established in 1997 to assist in management of our land and water resources. CMA's have statutory functions under the Water Act 1989 with respect to waterway and floodplain management; and responsibilities under the Catchment and Land Protection Act 1994 with respect to pests, plants and animals, and land management.
The Gippsland Agricultural Group Inc. is an incorporated, not for profit, volunteer run organisation based across Central and East Gippsland. The group is driven and managed by local farmers who are seeking local solutions to local issues. The group’s focus is to conduct relevant research trials and demonstrations, to investigate innovation in agriculture and the feasibility of implementation in local environments. The knowledge will be gained by conducting small scale research at the Gippsland Research Farm and if proven viable, moved to satellite farms for large paddock scale research. The information gained will be shared through the farming community as well as partner organisations.
