Join “Farming Smart Together” – Registration is now open!

What is possible when a committed and focused group of farmers come together to share what they know, and learn more about stewarding the land for a sustainable and profitable future?

 

The Far South Coast Landcare Association invites you to join an exciting new initiative – the Farming Smarter Together program. This 18 month program will work with a small group of farmers from the Bega Valley region to explore ways of improving their long term sustainability and profitability.

This program is focused on:

  • Bringing a committed group of farmers together to build their own
    confidence and capacity to steward the land for a sustainable farming future.
  • Supporting individual farmers to learn, practice and reflect on their
    management practices and decisions.

Program benefits:

  • Look closely at your land condition and management practices, and identify
    future goals.
  • Explore environmental management systems and how they could lead towards
    improved sustainability of your land and business.
  • Be part of a group that shares knowledge and learns together over 8 learning
    module areas.
  • Access specialist knowledge on relevant subject areas.

Your commitment

  • A commitment to get together with the group on a regular basis (about 1
    day/month) over 18 months.
  • Ability to undertake planning, monitoring and reflection in-between monthly
    get togethers.
  • Willingness to share your knowledge and learning in a group.
  • Willingness to host the group on your property for learning opportunities.
  • An $350/farm contribution towards accessing specialists
