WISALTS column - Farmers learn art of divining

(1989) WISALTS column - Farmers learn art of divining. Elders Weekly, 2 March 1989. p. 58 [Publication] [Special Collections]


A recap of the WISALTS Farmer Orientation and Starter Consultants Course held at Three Springs on 20-23 February 1989. The course involved teaching farmers how to use a divining wire to locate water. It was run by experienced WISALTS members and consultants at the Three Springs Community Hall and in the paddocks of Kent Broad's property.

This article contains two photographs: David Baxter, Brian Baxter and Carolyn Solly at the blackboard portion of the course; and Laurie Adamson instructing Shane Jackson, Martin White and David Baxter in the field with divining wires.
