Regenerative Agriculture – A Deep Dive into Fire, Carbon and Water

February 21 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm


What is the magic ingredient to create carbon rich soils and also support the transformation of our Australian landscapes in a time of fire catastrophe and continuing landscape degradation?

Join farmers and foodies, scientists, creatives and change-makers at this showcase event. We are taking a deep dive into discussions around Fire, Carbon, Water and a bit of magic to learn how we can, together, help mitigate fire and rehydrate our farms.

Enjoy delicious morning tea and lunch at the Mulloon Institute made by local caterers and take a journey to visit Martin Royds’ farm at Jillamatong, Braidwood in the afternoon.

Meet inspiring people who are all keen to find better ways to regenerate our soils, our land, our farming practices and our communities. Let the urban and rural meet, engage and inspire.

Join us for the formal launch of the Clean Energy Regulator’s Handbook for farmers wanting to learn how to join the Carbon Market.

Our speakers and guests include:

  • Charlie Arnott – Bob Hawke Landcare Award Winner and Regenerative farmer
  • Shayleen Thompson, Executive General Manager -launching the Clean Energy Regulator’s simple guide to Climate Solutions Fund soil carbon projects.
  • Walter Jehne – unpacking the secret ingredient to making carbon and water zing.
  • Luke Peel – Science Co-ordinator at Mulloon shares the stories and exciting research currently being undertaken at the Institute and how it can translate to supporting farmers working on the ground.
  • Helen & Mike McCosker (Carbon8) – regenerative farmers taking a holistic approach around community resilience and discusses how Carbon8 supports farmers.

The most meaningful way to celebrate the week of Valentine’s in 2020. Forget the carbon diamond ring! This year it’s all about carbon in the soil!
