Kioloa sustainability practices

There are a number of sustainability practices undertaken to ensure that high productivity, profitability and research possibilities are maintained at the Kioloa Coastal Campus.

A&A worm farm

Kioloa Coastal Campus encourages environmental sustainable practices, with all waste on the Kioloa Coastal Campus property being processed by four A&A Worm farms. Solids and liquids are separated and worms process the solids into fine castings, which are then pumped to transpiration beds where the nutrients are used to grow pasture.

Feral Animal Control Program

The Kioloa Coastal Campus has a feral animal control program in place to assist in the survival of the critically endangered shorebirds - Fox baiting is carried out regularly in conjunction with NPWS, LHPA and SCC with much success.

The Murramarang Community Garden

The local 'Murramarang Community Garden Inc.', located at the Kioloa Coastal Campus, has expanded to now include some 80+ members with individual garden plots. Recently the community garden area has been expanded to include a cultivated area suitable for communal growing - fruit trees, berries, garlic, potatoes, onions etc. The MCG group holds regular Saturday working bees and invites friends and visitors to drop by.
