RIG News – February 2013, No.23 now online.
Welcome to the first edition of RIG News for 2013.
It’s a bit of a bumper edition to kick things off, after what has been such a challenging hot summer and dry wet season for so many people.
As it’s the first for the year, we’ve rejigged the order of things. It’s a bit ‘long’ but there’s a lot coming up in 2013 we thought you’d like to know about now….
- Leading off, is a listing of coming events from within the Network and from across the nation that relate to food, health and social and economic development on country. For your information and possibly for your diary?
- We welcome two new RIG Partner Organisations – the Top End Aboriginal Bush Broadcasting Association (TEABBA) and Nutrition Plus Ltd
- Include some really useful new gardening and garden design resources you can download from the Gardening Resources page on the RIG website (see new pages under ‘Resources’).
- And saving the best for last, technical tips, advice and inspiration for central Australian and top end gardens, respectively, from gardening gurus Geoff Miers and Leonie Norrington. Many thanks Geoff and Leonie for your stories – Technical Tips that we aim to include as regular features this year.
