Update: Frahns Farm receives inch of rain this August

This year’s Frahn’s Farm Planting Festival was a little different to previous years. Despite crowd density restrictions forcing the festival to be spread across 11 days, we managed to plant more than four times as many seedlings as last year!

A big thank you to all those who dug such deep and wide water bowls in often rock-hard soil, as these bowls mean that our precious plants can make the most of any rain!

Frahn’s Farm is a 550-hectare property on Crown land in the eastern Mount Lofty Ranges. Bio·R has a memorandum of understanding established with Murraylands and Riverland Landscape Board (Natural Resources SAMDB) to help deliver a long-term native habitat restoration plan.
