Event description

Exploring Soils, Trees, Productivity, Contracts and Farm Accounting

The Farming Carbon conference aims to support land managers, agriculture industry groups, Landcare participants, and industry staff in north east Victoria in building their knowledge and understanding of carbon farming systems. 

In a nutshell, carbon can be confusing, and there are many options to engage in carbon markets some of which are still evolving. There is, therefore, a need to promote awareness among land managers of what carbon farming is about, the opportunities available and processes required, the issues and pitfalls, and generally the keys to a successful carbon farming program.
