Sarah Cranney has taken on the role of Local Landcare Coordinator for Condobolin and surrounding areas.
Condobolin and Districts Landcare (CDLC) have welcomed Sarah, who has a passion for the environment and an extensive agricultural background.
Sarah grew up on a property near Goondiwindi with three older siblings, and over the years her family have run both sheep and cattle. After six years at boarding school she spent time working for an agronomist, with adventures to Papua New Guinea, Africa and Europe mixed in between.
Sarah then moved to Hillston at the end of 2016 to continue working for an independent agronomist, mainly in the cotton industry, whist completing her university studies externally through the University of New England.
With her studies now complete and after living in Condobolin for two and a half years, she is excited to take on the challenges of her new role. Sarah looks forward to meeting, and working with, local landholders and the community over the coming years.
Condobolin and Districts Landcare were fortunate to be successful in four different grant applications towards the end of last financial year.
As Sarah settles into her new role, CDLC would appreciate input from the local community as to the direction of future initiatives.
A survey has been created to gain a greater, and current, understanding of the interests of the community. Responses from this survey will guide future funding applications, and the general direction of Condobolin and Districts Landcare.
To access the survey, follow the link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/QFFDKMY or contact Sarah for a hardcopy.
Find Sarah in the Local Land Services office in Bathurst Street on a Wednesday (depending on COVID-19 restrictions), contact her via phone on 0499 199 018, or send her an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
