Swamps, Rivers & Ranges is proud of the diverse and passionate committee we have and we want to tell you all about them!

Our first introduction is Philippa Noble- Secretary

Philippa and her husband own a farm at Brimin on the Murray River  where they produce prime lambs, plantation timber and crops, as well as provide on-farm accommodation.   In order to get larger landscape change they focus on farm revegetation with economic as well as environmental benefits, planting thousands of native trees and shrubs on their farm and managing  selected trees for sawlog production.  With an Agricultural Science degree, and post graduate training in  aquaculture, climate change and ornithology, Philippa worked with the Victorian government in agriculture and natural resource management for over 30 years mainly as an extension officer, advising farmers on a range of enterprises and managing various research and plantation establishment projects including successfully establishing over 550 ha of firewood plantations in NE Victoria. She is currently President of the Rutherglen Landcare Group and heavily involved in the Victorian Farm Forest Growers and other environmental organisations.
