Our Recovery Support Officer in Far North South Australia Matt recently caught up with Gurra Downs Date Company’s managing director Dave Reilly. Based in the SA Riverland, Gurra Downs are a great example of innovation and resilience in farming, through overcoming environmental challenges facing the area and sticking to their passion in the development of Australia’s date industry.

Dave tells us about how he and his family established the date company with internationally imported tissue culture plants and after twenty years of research and selective work, came to establish a large scale date palm plantation that is resilient through environmental challenges.

Watch the video below to learn more about Dave’s story.
