In our latest Heartland Journeys website story, Kojonup farmer and landcarer Kath Mathwin writes lovingly of the wildflowers and wildlife that once existed in Kojonup’s bushland and road verges, and delivers a poignant account of environmental change and loss over her lifetime. After more than 80 years of living in this farming district, Kath seeks a stronger landcare and environmental ethic. This story is in the September 2022 edition of the Southerly Magazine, and on our Heartland Journeys website here.
