last week our region experienced the second largest flood recorded (the biggest ever was the 1971 monster) .... here's our little creek - flood waters are dropping rapidly (usually a small stream) ....
The Bega Valley is much flatter than our hilly place - so things were a
whole lot more serious - low lying houses, businesses and farms were
flooded with wide spread devasation to land and infrastructure.... Aside from this being a timely reminder of the need to plan for flooding (and NOT ploughing your paddocks in the wetter months, as I noticed some farms now stripped of topsoil had done), I'm mostly posting here as the floods have impacted plans for our open day at sams creek (originally scheduled for may 1 - national permy day!). We are now planning to open sasm creek bookworks and the garden here at Sams Creek sometime in october 2011.... date yet to be determined.
