    Event description

    Partnering with Nature for Enhanced Productivity 

    Did you know that farms are more profitable when they have at least 30% to 40% tree cover?🌳 Why is this?

    Would you like to meet other farmers🧑‍🌾who have success stories of how they have improved their farm through biodiversity?

    Are you aware of the programs available that can reward you for the Natural Capital on your farm?

    Would you like to know which threatened native species are on your farm and what are the management processes you can do to protect them? (and no – it’s not about locking up your land)


    We are teaming up with farmers to help them boost profitability by prioritising their land health and protecting native species.

    🌟 This workshop will provide answers and much more.

    🔑 Key Topics and Questions:

        🌱 How does on-farm biodiversity boost profitability?

        🧑‍🌾 Meet farmers who have transformed their farms through biodiversity.

        💵 Learn about programs that reward you for the Natural Capital on your farm.

        🐾 Discover the threatened native species on your land and practical management processes to protect them.
