August Field Day: Dianella Animal Sanctuary



Time & Location

Saturday 12 August, 10:00 am – 2:30 pm Martins Creek, NSW


About the Event Host: Kathy Isherwood


I purchased this property in 2000. I was attracted to the property as it was extensively covered with native trees & undergrowth including shrubs, grasses, & diverse ground covers. My main plan was to rehabilitate the bush & protect this as a conservation area in perpetuity. This has been achieved with most of the 32 hectares covered by this conservation plan. The remaining area is set aside for rescued & abandoned farm animals & many roosters in need of a home. I have an organic orchard under development which will one day incorporate vegetables. The work on maintaining the natural area is always ongoing as each season presents new challenges. I would like to believe I will leave the property, & the animals that call it home in a much improved state.


Memebers of LETS will be joining us for the field day.
