Richmond. Farming course to move

Richmond will lose a Keyline farming principles course as participants have been denied access to Keyline properties, at North Richmond, according to the Hawkesbury Gazette. A field trip to the land, formerly owned by P.A Yeomans, who developed the Keyline system of land enrichment, could not happen due to denial of access by the new owners. Participants were instead taken to two properties in the Camden area, which use the Keyline system on a smaller scale. A total of 70 farmers attended the recent three-day Keyline Design Course run by education provider, Milkwood Permaculture, at UWS Hawkesbury recently. Participants came from as far as the United States, Queensland, WA and Tasmania. The Federal-Government-subsidised course covered the principals of Keyline, and how farmers can implement it on their properties. It was the second Keyline-dedicated course run by Milkwood. The first in March 2008 had 40 participants.
