Canowindra Community Hits ABC Radio News

Thanks to the boys at the Trading Post for hosting ABC on Thursday!

A little cut and paste...
"Local shop and cafe owner Nick Jacobs made a tree change 11 years ago, leaving Sydney and settling in Canowindra after three years of research.
"It's got a diversity of industry. It's very fortunate to have great farming land. It's a community that has maintained the ability to be sustainable as a small regional community, and we also felt it had a huge potential to grow and develop into the future.
"There's not many smaller communities that can achieve what we are able to achieve, and that's purely because we have a sense of community."

Block 7 for Sale



This 8.42 hectare bare block has uniform red clays, mostly free draining, and direct access to power. It is irrigated with a shared 3.6ML/ha river/bore licence. It is one of twelve farm blocks within a unique, successful Community Title organic farm development, has been fully soil surveyed and is surrounded by wide lanes for vehicles and stock, and native tree windbreaks. Block 7 comes with an associated 0.5 hectare house block with building approval, underground phone, power and water connected.

There is no limitation on your farming activities except that you maintain organic certification. As part of a group of certified organic growers there is greater potential to achieve your goals through cooperation, as outlined in the Management Statement:

"The objective of this Neighbourhood Scheme is to facilitate the creation of viable intensive organic agricultural developments by promoting co-operation and self-reliance among the proprietors of Lots in the Neighbourhood Plan"
