Online Farm Trials

Online Farm Trials is a collaborative project putting research knowledge online and linking it to national data, opening up new possibilities for smarter farming and better research.

This short documentary film explores the impact of the Online Farm Trials project from the perspectives of key users and researchers.

Farm trials have been a part of Australian farming for many years. Often run by local grower groups on behalf of agricultural communities, testing is also done around the country by government, research organisations and private industry. On-farm trials and test plot trials respond to the questions and concerns of farmers about specific crops in specific regions. They help farmers improve farming productivity and sustainability.

Up to this point the learning from on-farm and trial research has been limited to regions. It’s not that the results haven’t been available. Hard copy trial results in the form of annual research reports have been distributed to communities and stored on farm bookshelves and in libraries and have been available as a resource to researchers. But in practice it has been difficult to compare learning across regions or across time.

The Online Farm Trials project changes everything by putting farm trial research online in a way that is decision useful to agronomists and growers.

The Story

In 1914 Australia went to war. Thousands of young recruits passed through Ballarat on their way to the front, to prepare for battle and to say a last goodbye.

This documentary explores the meaning of remembrance and looks at the way the Great War changed us, through the eyes of the young people of Ballarat today.

The Memories of War Project

‘The Last Goodbye’ was part of the ‘Memories of War’ film and research project collaboration between the RSL Ballarat, Federation University Australia, the Gold Museum, the Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka and Wind & Sky Productions.

The project connected with writing, history, drama and education students from Federation University Australia who explored what World War One was like for the people of Ballarat.

As part of the project community members were invited to produce content for the Gold Museum on the topic of ‘Memories of War’. Publication of content began in September 2015 and continues to be published. Contributions were diverse and included reflective essays, biographies, poems and performances.

Documentary Approach

From the stories, contributors, content and people unearthed in the project a film ‘The Last Goodbye’ was produced.

The film draws on the performances, reflections, findings and stories of researchers, curators, historians, writers, performers, artists and students of Ballarat.

The core principle of the film was that the narrative would be guided by the perspectives of the central contributors, and is an assemblage of the learning and the journey of local people who have worked on understanding WW1.

The film provides a view point on the way Ballarat has remembered the impacts and legacy of the Great War in this commemorative year.

It is a compilation of seated interviews with four young people who have researched, in various ways, the impact of WW1, interspersed with performed readings and reminiscences chosen by the performers themselves from texts provided by Ballarat-based historians. These live voices are complemented by a selection of historical photographs from local and international archival collections and with music of the WW1 era performed by the Graduating Actors of the Arts Academy.

The Story

On the rivers of remote Victoria, 19th century European settlers depended on Aboriginal navigators and canoe builders to transport goods, stock and people.

The Aboriginal bark canoe was a technology in demand in regional Victoria in the 1800s. Explorers and drovers, gold miners and settlers used Aboriginal ferrying services and boat building services to conduct trade and transport. Stories abound of trade, canoeing, and heroic rescues on rivers such as the Murray, Goulburn, Campaspe, Ovens and Loddon, shedding light on the generosity, resourcefulness and ingenuity of the Indigenous inhabitants and of the trading relationships formed between Aboriginal people and European colonists. Indeed it could be argued that the waterways skills of Aboriginal Australians were integral to the early economic viability of Victoria.

Multimedia Project

Wind & Sky Productions produced a short documentary film and multimedia gallery for Culture Victoria, curating the online exhibition and producing the text, video, audio and visual content. The project was launched on the 27 May 2015 to mark the beginning of National Reconciliation Week 2015. The documentary film screened at the Big Screen at Federation Square, Melbourne, from the 5-11 July 2015 as part of NAIDOC Week 2015. The project features interviews with the historian Associate Professor Fred Cahir and Traditional Owners Uncle Bryon Powell, Jamie Lowe and Rick Nelson, and includes artwork, maps and photographs from the regional and metropolitan collections of the State Library of Victoria, the Art Gallery of Ballarat, Public Record Office Victoria, Museum Victoria and the Ballarat Gold Museum. Three short historical essays written by Fred Cahir and Lucinda Horrocks were also specially produced for the project.

Natural Resource Management Planning Portal

 

CS-NRM-PP--V02.00_00_12_24.Still004 CS-NRM-PP--V02.00_05_57_04.Still010 CS-NRM-PP--V02 CS-NRM-PP--V02.00_06_00_00.Still001 CS-NRM-PP--V02.00_04_15_03.Still009

The Landcare Groups in the Corangamite Catchment Management Authority region are trialling a planning model which could revolutionise how communities work together to care for our environment.

This short documentary film explores the impact of the Natural Resource Management (NRM) Planning Portal project from the perspectives of key users and researchers.

For nearly thirty years community volunteers in Landcare Groups have been looking after their local environment – cleaning up creeks and wetlands, managing weeds, erosion, salinity, looking after flora and fauna, generally caring about the health of their home.

Landcare Groups form their own local plans and priorities regarding weeds, water, soil health, pests and other categories, and apply for government, corporate or community funding to keep their work going. Together with the larger umbrella organisations the Catchment Management Authorities (CMAs), Landcare Groups form a vital part of the network of volunteer and institutional organisations taking care of the land, water and biodiversity of the regions.

The NRM Planning Portal, being piloted in the Corangamite CMA district, enables Landcare networks and their Catchment Management Authority partners to share information about past works and projects and to come up with joint priorities which have the best potential for funding. The Portal centres around the needs of Landcare Networks to develop a Local Catchment Plan and helps them do so by making lots of relevant planning information available to assist in identifying priorities (self determined, eg ‘weeds’, ‘pests’, ‘salinity’, ‘erosion’, for instance ) and presenting these visually on a map. These priorities can be compared with regional, state and national priorities to explore areas of intersection and best matches for funding.

Visualising Victoria’s Groundwater (VVG)

 

Info

Client: Federation University Australia

Produced: 2014

Length: 10.36 minutes

Visualising Victoria’s Groundwater (VVG) is a web-based system which collates scientific data on Victoria’s groundwater from many sources in real time and represents it visually on a map. Developed by the Geology department and the Centre for eResearch and Digital Innovation (CeRDI) at Federation University Australia, the VVG project is not only a revolutionary way to explore groundwater data, it is an innovative and collaborative approach to public data sharing which responds to user needs yet respects the custodians of data. In an era where big data, open public data and high-speed broadband is transforming the way we use and access information, this project has inspired a rethink in policy and research circles on what is possible and provides a practical model of how data custodians can work together. The simple act of representing complex data on a map has sparked spin-off projects in many different disciplines, from history to fire management, and has led to new uses and applications the original planners did not think possible. The project proves that people with passion for their science and its data can work together to achieve great things.
