Landscape Rehabilitation and Stabilization
Capital Wind Farm near Bungendore, NSW, Australia, had a gully erosion problem which threatened their power-poles and power line infrastructure. A landscape rehabilitation and stabilisation project was undertaken to protect the infrastructure. This project was very different to the normal hard engineering solution. It utilised Permaculture design principles combined with a soft engineering approach that used compost and packed compost “socks” to stabilise the area. This combined with seeding and planting helped build biodiversity and established landscape function again. In this video the Matt Kilby from Global Land Repair, and Gerry Gillespie from the Department of Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water, Sustainability Programs Division, visit the site a year after the site works were completed and give their insights on the project outcomes.
