Is carbon farming an option for your business?

If you have questions like: Is carbon farming profitable? What does carbon farming do for the soil? Where is carbon farming predicted to go in the future? What are the additional benefits of carbon farming? Then this is the tour for you! Learn more on the upcoming Carbon Farming Tour on 21 November 2019.

Natural Resources Adaptive Agriculture Officer Nicola Turner says that there are exciting developments in carbon farming and encourages anyone interested to attend.

“We will be investigating what carbon farming looks like on farm, some of the overall benefits of carbon farming as well as observe the changes in soil from increasing carbon.” Ms Turner said.

“If any of these areas interest you, then join us on a half day tour. We will be hearing from a landholder about how carbon farming works on his farm. You will also be able to talk carbon farming logistics, methodology and technical detail with an aggregator. Who can help you navigate your way to developing a carbon project, and hear about soil carbon in a sandy environment from a soil consultant. Participants will be travelling by bus, departing from Bordertown.”
