Landcare’s Sustainable Farms Workshops – Small Commercial Farms

March 19, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

 
* Learn how to make your farm more resilient, productive & competitive from experts in farm planning, soil nutrition, water, animals, trees, farm-gate sales & marketing & more

* On-Farm Tours—see what others are doing

Running a small commercial farm requires business savvy and farming skills. Evaluating the business case for a product, nutritious soils, a well-designed farm layout, adequate water supplies and how to market your produce are some of the basics being discussed.

We are fortunate to have Graeme Sait, Founder and CEO of Nutri–Tech, an international soil nutrition expert presenting during the course.

The host farm is located amongst the hills of Mirboo. The owners have 10 acres of a former cattle grazing property and developed it into an award winning garlic growing enterprise.

Keynote Speakers

Graeme Sait, Founder & CEO Nutri-Tech Solutions, Soil Nutrition Expert, International Soil Consultant, Author of “Nutrition Rules”
