Posted 29 March 2021.
Karoonda Farm Fair is happening this year on 9 and 10 April, and we’ll be there!
Drop by the Murraylands and Riverland Landscape Board marquee at 15-16 Copeville Street, speak with our friendly staff, or learn some interesting facts about native animals and get up close with a reptile or two.
The Murraylands and Riverland Landscape Board General Manager Andrew Meddle said people will be able to hear from a variety of our expert staff who are keen to talk with the community and answer questions.
“The Karoonda Farm Fair is a great way to let people know about the services that the landscape board can offer to primary producers and our local community,” Mr Meddle said.
“This year’s marquee has lots to see and do, including some fun and interactive activities.
“While you are visiting, why not enter the marquee competition for budding gardeners to win a start your own veggie garden pack,” he said.
