David Franklin is a farmer, a nursery man and a self-taught mechanical engineer. He’s worked with sheep, crops and has seen the trends of Landcare come and go. Bringing together 30 years of observation, practice and know-how, he has turned his attention to native grassland restoration, with impressive success. In partnership with the Grassy Groundcover Grassland Restoration Project, David has assisted in developing new techniques for native grass production and grassland restoration.

*Hear David share his story and ideas at the Lismore Native Pasture Workshop Wednesday Oct 6th, see Events calender for further details…
The Beazleys purchased their 650 acre

and rare wildflowers have value for
land health as well as biodiversity.
Read the Beazley’s story of retaining native grasslands
for financial reward through Ecosystem Service payments.
