Biodiversity with BioR & GirlsRock! Adelaide

Biodiversity with BioR & GirlsRock! Adelaide
70kms out of Adelaide, Franh's Farm is Bio·R‘s major biodiversity project. Bio-R is a habitat restoration organisation who rebuild biodiversity back into areas around Adelaide. 

At Franh’s Farm, they are reconstructing woodland habitat for native flora and fauna. So far they have built a kangaroo proof fence, reseeded 15ha of native grasses and planted countless native plants. But, the work isn’t finished. 

Volunteers, campers, family, and friends of Girls Rock! Adelaide spent the day weeding at the Farm. Girls Rock! Adelaide runs programs for gender-diverse youth, girls, and trans-masc youth ages 10-17. This weeding event is to help offset the ecological impacts of their camps, and connect with local sustainability projects.

Girls Rock! reached out to us to help kit out the team who came along. Weeding is physical work, and we were so excited to help these volunteers be comfortable and protected out on Franh’s Farm.

Weeding days are an important way to clean up and maintain all the hard work that has been done for biodiversity. Removing weeds allows the young native species that have been planted to flourish. 

This event took place on the stolen lands of the Ngadjuri people, and we recognise them as the traditional owners of this land and pay respect to 
Elders, past, present and emerging of the Ngadjuri nation.

BioR is non-profit organisation that reconstructs native habitats across South Australia, and connects the community with the land.
