Closed since 2011, the decision was made earlier this year to reopen the facility which will house 75 minimum-security male inmates.

A Corrective Services spokeswoman said it was part of a long-term infrastructure plan to cater for the rising prisoner population.

It is part of the Better Prisons program which includes creating more than 1100 new beds across the state.

Member for Goulburn said reopening the correctional centre would benefit the Highlands community.

“It means our gardens and public spaces may be tended by prisoners from this minimum security prison,” she said.

“That’s a great improvement for the Southern Highlands.

“I understand it will also mean employment opportunities for local residents and I hope local businesses will be able to supply goods and services to the prison.”

Ms Goward said when the new facilities were completed, prisoners would be housed in “fit for purpose” modern facilities and prisons like Berrima would be available for redevelopment.

“This is all good news for the Southern Highlands.”

Corrective Services NSW is undertaking painting and plumbing works at the centre ahead of the opening next month.

The gaol was closed in late 2011 and the site has been maintained by Correctional Services NSW (CSNSW) and the local community.

Berrima Rotary has made use of the site over two long weekends to raise funds for community projects.

Ms Goward said details were being worked out between Corrective Services and the Wingecarribee Shire Council.

When it was first announced the gaol would reopen, Wingecarribee Shire mayor Larry Whipper said he supported the decision.

“This is great news for both Berrima and the greater Shire,” Councillor Whipper said.

“It will ensure the heritage listed gaol is both protected and put to good use at the same time.”

“As part of the re-opening we will also be investigating how Council can work with the NSW State Government in providing inmates with meaningful local training and community service opportunities,” he said.

Tathra’s award winning oysters

The award-winning business has qualified as a finalist in the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW President’s Medal competition.

“It’s a lovely award, and a pat on the back for Tathra Oysters,” Tathra Oysters owner Gary Rodely said.

“But it’s also a lovely reminder of what a great industry the local oyster industry is.

“It fits a lot of the modern criteria people are interested in.”

Tathra Oysters were the inaugural winners of the President’s Medal when it was first run in 2006, then were finalists for the award in 2012.

Mr Rodely said if they are successful this year, they will be the first organisation to win the award twice.

In addition to product quality, he said the award takes into account the social, financial and environmental impacts of businesses, as consumers want to know more about those factors.

“We all want to know where our food comes from,” Mr Rodely said.

“It’s a really modern award, breaking away from the traditional awards of just how good your product is.”

He said the oyster industry was a low carbon emitting industry in general.

Tathra Oysters do not use chemicals in the growing process, use long-life sustainable materials and their waste product is basically oyster shells, which are used to stabilise the road through the National Park to the farm at Nelson Lake.

President’s Medal chair of judges Simon Marnie said this is the ultimate agricultural award for excellence in Australia, and he was pleased to have Tathra Oysters back in the finals.

“Gary and his team have achieved nomination into a very exclusive club of elite producers who are at the apex of agriculture in Australia,” Mr Marnie said.

“Nominees in this award category are a select few and so, while winning the President’s Medal is a fine honour, being nominated is a stellar achievement.”

A site tour of Tathra Oysters will take place in August before the winner of the President’s Medal is announced on November 25.

Course paves the way

Seven people have secured employment in and around the dairy industry after taking part in a three-week intensive course designed to give participants job-ready skills.

A group of 12 people took part in the recent Tafe South Australiaagriculture training program, learning about a variety of skills such as fencing, water suppliers, livestock handling and operating quad bikes.

TAFE SA agriculture lecturer Lynnley Selig said the course taught skills that were transferable across all agricultural enterprises.

“The recipe of consulting with industry, blending theory with real projects that teach practical skills, and then placing selected students out on the dairies for work experience has proved successful,” Ms Selig said.

“It has been a rewarding experience to see students’ self-esteem develop once they have gained employment and it’s a very proud moment when we graduate students at higher level certificates as they advance their careers in agriculture,” she said.

The course included on-farm experience such as a fence-building project at the property of local dairyfarmer Brett Newman.

While students gained valuable skills, Mr Newman said he and his wife Chloe were happy to finally have a safe area for their children and were grateful to the students who applied themselves to complete the project.

Living in the Culcairn township, Buchhorn said his mum was a good cook and his dad –like many country dads, to be fair –“cooked the barbecue on high for a verylong time!”.

“I always liked cooking since I was a kid,” Buchhorn said.

“I have always had a fascination with reading cookbooks too.

“I still love reading books about food and watch docos on chefs all the time.

“Heston Blumenthal is greatand so is Gordon Ramsay’s food if you can getpast his style.”

Now head chef at Canvas Eatery in Albury, Buchhorn helps put contemporary menus together with owner/operator Tim Tehan, another Riverina-raised restaurateur who grew up on a Holbrook sheep station.

“I really enjoy the menu development; Tim is a really great resource to be able to bounce ideas off,” Buchhorn said.

Buchhorn said Riverina lamb had a special place in his repertoire and on the current menu, which coincided with Lambex in Albury this week.

“I love the sweetness of the lamb grown around here,” he said.

The former Billabong High School student completed his chef apprenticeship in 2011, having trainedat the SS&A Club, Smart Hospitality, Granata’s and Brady’sRailway Hotel.

Now based back at Culcairn, Buchhorn and his wife Jacinta are busy raising Matilda, 5, and Mason, 1.

He said his favourite style of food now was Middle Eastern.

“Middle Eastern flavourings have been my preference lately,” he said.

“I really like Spanish food too.

“Some of the flavour combinations are amazing; just simple and clean in their presentation.”
