Limestone Coast funding to support best practice agriculture in a changing climate
09 March 2021
The Limestone Coast Landscape Board are calling for submissions for the 2021 Adaptive Agricultural Grant program which encourage sustainable primary production and supports agricultural, forestry and fishery groups and industries to adapt to variable climatic conditions of the Limestone Coast and markets
Funding is now available to local agriculture groups implementing projects to build resilience and respond to the threats and market opportunities created by climate change for the Limestone Coast region of South Australia.
Limestone Coast Landscape Board Sustainable Agriculture Team Leader Amanda Giles said applications for Adaptive Agriculture Grants are now open, and funding will be awarded to projects and/or activities that support the principle of sustainable management of natural resources.
“Projects could include hosting events or webinars, conducting field trials, demonstrations of innovative technology, and producing communications could be eligible for funding.”
Applications for one off grants between $2,500 and $7,000 are encouraged. The total grant funding available is $30.000.
The grants are aimed at and open to agriculture, forestry and fishery groups including but not limited to primary production / farming system groups and their members, local action planning groups, indigenous groups, non-government or not for profit groups working to improve sustainable primary production.
“Past projects have helped local landholders and businesses build resilience in a changing climate and have investigated topics such as alternative pasture varieties, water efficiency use and security, and innovative monitoring methods.”
“We’re excited to be supporting local people and are looking forward to seeing what ideas are brought to life by this round of grants.”
Applications close Saturday 19th April 2021 at 5pm.
