Bridget Leaves Landcare for Health Reasons

Landcare coordinators from across the Goulburn Broken Catchment gathered in Ruffy today to farewell Bridget Clarke.


Bridget has worked for the Upper Goulburn Landcare Network , based in the Yea CMA office , for 7 years. Next week she will take up an appointment at Yea Hospital in the Health & Well being field. Bridget will be impossible to replace , she is such a character !
She will be remembered for her passionate approach to all things landcare: biological farming , soil health , dung beetles , fish circuses , ‘big trees’ , unnecessary vegetation clearing , bushfire recovery , calendars of events , Terry Hubbard , her landcare groups ,writing funding applications & final reports and speaking out for landcare in a loud clear voice.



“I will miss our phone chats” Tony Kubeil
“I will miss her pumpkin soup now that I am a gluten free vegetarian ” Janet
“I will missed her wicked replies to my emails” Charlie
“It was truly a pleasure to work with someone so competent, attentive, effective, ‘straight up & down’, ‘tell it like it is’,  ‘get to the bottom of it and sort it out’…… and all round professional. You’ll be missed.” Bertram
” I will miss her crazy project titles” Karen
We will all miss Bridget , but she isn’t moving far away and we will be invading her new office often.


I can even see combined morning teas to develop Community Health & Landcare projects for the Yea district (or are my glasses just dirty? it has been raining a bit.). Bridget might find that one has to do more than move offices, to escape from Landcare!
