Landcare NSW recently released their new Membership and Insurance Program. For a number of years Landcare groups have been asking for cost effective insurance that provides adequate protection for group members. The package is offered in two teirs depending on the income and employer status of the group. The Insurance Program provides Public Liability and Volunteer Workers coverage PLUS Association Liability (if applicable) which covers a range of risks including Professional Indemnity, Officers & Directors Liability and more.

Are you interesting in utilising drones to support your farm management or Landcare project? Drone use can assist in checking crop or stock status, surveying weed incursions, provide data for crop analysis mapping and enable you to survey your sites from a distance.
North Coast TAFE is inviting expressions of interest for a course in drone use to be held at Wollongbar campus in Semester two this year. Mark Fogarty of Casino drone business Blue Horizons and Andrew Trease aviation course co-ordinator at Wollongbar TAFE are planning an information session on drone technology in farming to be held in Casino and are requesting people with interest to contact them to set a date that works for you.
Contact TAFE on 66204 888 or Blue Horizons on 0416 279366
