Gillamii Centre Sustainable Agriculture in Practice

The Gillamii Centre aims to lead and inspire our agricultural community and the community at large to be involved with sustainable land use through training, education and knowledge into the future.

Whilst the two areas of Agricultural Production and Natural Resource Management are to some degree distinct, they are also inextricably linked - and this is the role of Gillamii - to encourage and lead in the efficient use of resources across the community while protecting and enhancing the natural environment. An example of this is the successful perennial pastures with saltbush rehabilitation. 


Community Engagement building relationships between producers, agricultural groups and the community at large via hosting various events such as workshops, field days and night stalks and also supporting and partnering like minded organisations, links all parties to ensure there is a sustainable agriculture in practice.

Research & Development another arm of Gillamii is research in viticulture and agriculture - both broadacre & intensive. Farm trials which are specific to this great southern higher rainfall area.

Environmental Projects  the Gillamii has partnered with South Coast Natural Resource Management and Landcare Australia to fund environmental projects under the guidance of our Project Officer Jenni Loveland. This covers grants like fencing, land rehabilitation and pest control. A highlight of the year for the younger generation is the Barna Mia Camp at Dryandra, funded by Gillamii and Bendigo Bank which educates the local Tambellup, Cranbrook & Frankland River school children about Australian Fauna.
