EcoVineyards workshops receive great reviews
The saying ‘A rising tide lifts all boats’ is resonating strongly with me this month.
Our first four EcoVineyards workshops have taken place over the past few weeks and it’s become overwhelmingly clear to me there’s a significant groundswell in regard to sustainable viticulture, balancing our ecosystems and building resilience.
We’ve been incredibly lucky to have had a diverse mix of experts presenting on a range of topics at workshops in McLaren Vale, Langhorne Creek, Adelaide Hills and Barossa. Each workshop has also had the benefit of hearing from Dr Mary Retallack and the local EcoGrowers who have happily shared their experiences to date and their EcoVineyards project ideas.

We're hitting the road in November and December for our first round of EcoVineyards workshops.
Come along and learn about the EcoVineyards project and how native insectary plants can be used to create biodiverse ecosystems in and around vineyards.
