Firestick Farming

Completely thrilled to be facilitating this fascinating discussion on fire and indigenous land management practices as part of the BoFA Film Festival. 

Firestick Cultivation:
Did the original custodians of our land have it right?

After an introduction by Director,  Roger Scholes (The Tale of Ruby Rose), speakers will discuss whether the management of our vulnerable high country might learn much (or not) from the original custodians of Tasmania’s high country. Speakers include high country expert Harold Riley, historian Professor Henry Reynolds, University of Tasmania, plus  Paul Black, State Fire Manager,  Parks and Wildlife Service Tasmania, Andry Sculthorpe, Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre, Vica Bailey, Director, The Wilderness Society,  and Leigh Walters, Tasmanian Land Conservancy
