Project Description

Greening Australia’s Cumberland Plain seed production facility is a real eye opener. You can see how they set up a low cost facility that allows for efficient harvesting and promotes genetic diversity. This protects remnants from over-exploitation and allows for much greater quantities of seed to be harvested more economically.
