Regenerative Farm Fund

Care for our environment is at the heart of everything we do at Paradise Road Farm.

For every direct booking, we set aside a minimum contribution of $25 towards to paying for projects to help restore and protect the natural environment on the farm.

Mount Roland Land Care 1000 Trees Project

In 2022 and 2023 we proudly partnered with our local community Landcare group Mount Roland Land Care, to support their 1000 Trees Project. As part of our contribution we are building a shelter bed on along our north west boundary. Its hoped the shelter bed will provided much needed habitat once the plantation on the other side of our boundary is cleared. Money from guest contributions ($925 for the year ending 1 July 2022 and $1475 for the year ending July 2023) has been used to install a fence to protect the new trees and shrubs from all of our four legged vegetarian friends. To date more than 30 community members have been involved in our community planting days and have planted more than 400 trees and shrubs to start this ongoing project.

Creek Restoration Project.

A key ongoing project is restoring the creek that runs along the northern boundary of our farm.

In 2016 serious flooding swept northern Tasmania, leading to significant erosion along the creek. This, combined with continued stock access to the creek has led to degradation of this section of the farm.

In late 2020 we were honoured to receive a Landcare grant to enable fencing of the creek and gullies running into it and to begin the re-vegetating the area with indigenous plants.

Over $500 in contributions from guests in 2020-21 assisted this project by providing funds for:

  • seedling propagation trays and materials to enable us to successfully grow native seedlings from seeds collected on the farm (we've also been able to reuse secondhand tubes and seedling trays)
  • additional fencing materials
  • lunch for our community and farm stay guest volunteers who participated in our inaugural community planting day (the first of many we hope!).
