GOLDFIELDS & PILBARA SEED AVAILABLE

Red Dirt Seeds currently has large stocks of clean, viable seed from various provenance zones in the Goldfields and Pilbara. The seed can be mixed and treated in 1 hectare bags for immediate hand seeding.

The harvesting of seed is dependent on many factors, a couple of poor seasons and the range of seed varieties available can be dramatically reduced.

Pre ordering your seed will guarantee the right mix is available for your revegetation needs.

Red Dirt Seeds offer a storage service, where the seed is stored in a dehumidified temperature controlled cool room to ensure your seed remains viable until you are ready to begin your rehabilitation program.

SEED HARVESTING TRAINING IN NULLAGINE

Red Dirt Seeds in collaboration with Roy Hill Mining and the K+P Foundation, undertook two training sessions with the Kariyarra and Palyku People in Nullagine.

During these training sessions Red Dirt Seeds worked with the People on such issues as seed identification, collection, cleaning, packaging and delivery, with the view to the People eventually establishing their own business.

These training sessions proved invaluable in gaining the support and trust of the community to foster a closer working relationship. The participants demonstrated an enthusiasm and appreciation for the future financial and social benefits available through continuation of this activity.

Red Dirt Seeds is experienced in conducting this type of training with successful training sessions being held at :

  • Kimberley Diamond Mine - working with the Kimberley Rangers.
  • Anglogold Ashanti Tropicana Mine – working with the Tjuntjuntjara Spinifex People.
  • Atlas Iron Mt Dove – working with the Kariyarra People.
