GROUND Cover news editor Maria Taylor has received the ACT Sigma Landcare Media Award. It is for a publication produced with the Geary's Gap Wamboin Landcare Group for rural residential landholders entitled Look after Your Natural Assets: Landcare for the bush block and small farm acreage. The Landcare group does its bit inYarrowlumla Shire, which surrounds the Australian Capital Territory.

Ms Taylor says she has learned a lot from producing Ground Cover and the Landcare book is a nuts 'n' bolts compendium of useful information and shared knowledge for small holders. Ground Cover designer Sue Van Hornrigh shares the honour, having generously donated many hours to crafting the book's design (despite living far from the Shire and the Landcare group!).
