The Farm Business Resilience Program is a new program to help farmers, farm managers and their employees prepare for and manage risk, adapt to a changing climate and improve their business’ economic, environmental and social resilience. LLS is supporting DPI in the delivery and together, we will soon be rolling out workshops, business coaching, networking events and resources across NSW.
