Through February and March, ANU’s Sustainable Farms Team is hosting a ‘Summer Afternoon’ series of Field Days.
The field days are focused on water (Farm Dams and Riparian Areas) and Shelterbelts, and how managing and creating these natural assets well can improve the productivity of your farm and also create a better on farm environment for biodiversity and those that work there. Supported by Local Land Services and Landcare the days will give participates the opportunity to hear from inspiring and innovative host farmers, and other experts in their field. The events are free, family friendly and finish with a BBQ.
