THE Vietnamese Farmers Association of SA will be working towards sustainable management of water resources in the northern Adelaide horticulture community, thanks to a Community NRM Action Grant.

The group secured $5000 for sustainable management of water resources for Vietnamese farmers.

A total of 24 community-based groups in the Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges region will share nearly $110,000 in funding.

The Community NRM Action grants provide support for projects involving on-ground works and/or building community capacity.

Funded projects may be practically orientated and address issues around water quality, sustainable living, revegetation and biodiversity.

Other successful groups include  the Horse Federation of SA, who secured $4980 to work with horse owners on sound, sustainable management of soils, pasture and water on their properties.

The Angaston Ag Bureau also benefited with $4600 towards Livestock technology for NRM.

Environment and Conservation Minister Ian Hunter said he was impressed with the variety of environmental projects that would be supported by the grants.
