Changing the focus to regenerate your farm.

Want to find out how healthy ecosystems on the farm translate to healthy pastures, healthy animals and healthy businesses?

Come to our FREE Regional Regenerative Ag Forum and find out how other farmers use good management of natural ecosystems to increase rainfall effectiveness, improve soil structure and mitigate drought impacts.

Simple ideas such as increasing pasture diversity, improving organic litter and matter for soil biota activity and expanding tree canopy cover could help you too!

Hosted by Rachael Treasure – Rachel is a well-known Tasmanian novelist, passionate spokeswoman for soils and ‘agriculture activist’, who also loves yoga and utes.

Presenters include

  • Colin Seis an innovative farmer from Gulgong, keen on regenerative pasture cropping, encouraging native grass species suited to drought conditions and improving soil structure.
  • Tim Wright and David Marsh – sheep and cattle producers who embraced change on their farms after devastating droughts.
  • Plus local Hunter success stories on how improving management practices can help regenerate your farm.
