Successful completion of Sustainable Farming Fund project

Yesterday saw a successful conclusion to a two-year Sustainable Farming Fund project that I have been managing.  We completed the last of three field days that we have been running.  The turnout at the first wasn’t so good, but at the second we had about 70 people and yesterday we had 60+ people. The field day yesterday was hosted by Greg and Rachel Hart at Mangarara Station. We had a strong focus on soil health with Graham Shepherd talking on “Building soil health to better cope with climatic extremes” and providing a practical demonstration of his Visual Soil Assessment approach.

I’ll be posting a bit more information about the project soon, including pdf copies of the fact sheets that have been produced from the project.
