Neglected, drought-hardened and overgrazed, the land lay like a desert for decades until we took possession in 2007.
Our strategy is a holistic approach that respects the natural inputs and outputs of the land. It actively encourages regeneration of the flora such as the mulga tree, Eucalyptus and Yapunyah, which in turn creates favourable conditions for migrating birds and native animals, improves the microclimate, sequesters carbon from the atmosphere, and provides food for our honey bees.
In order to bring the native flora back, the feral goat and brumby horse populations need to be kept under control. Rather than shooting or other unsavoury methods, we humanely muster and transport selected animals to our free-range farm and ranching facilities in northern Victoria.
Over the last eight years the impact has been enormous. The floral biomass is consistently growing, and we are continuing to invest in projects including further reforestation, rotational farming, horse-rearing, geothermal energy possibilities, and creating ecology education resources. We want Urisino to be a destination for eco-tourism in the future.Sponsor our projects
