The area east of Mt Barker is rich agricultural land with only small pockets of remnant vegetation. Landholders are now banding together to reconnect some biodiverse hotspots, re-vegetate the waterways, and invigorate primary production.
Willawilla is cited as the Kaurna name for Brownhill Creek whose upper reaches start in the gullies of the Adelaide Hills. Local residents have watched these gullies become overgrown with feral weeds and are now taking those gullies back! We are working to reclaim the space for native flora and fauna, as well as reduce the fire risk presented by walls of blackberries, Erica and gorse.
