The Land Services Program — improve your business and landscape

The Land Services Program is a two-year program designed to help participants set and reach their individual goals for their farming operation through training opportunities and one on one support specific to their property and aspirations.

The Program, which began in 2018 with three businesses in a pilot program and has continued with yearly intakes, is run over two years or eight 'quarters', operating under a case officer approach, which pairs participants with one of our staff members who will provide support and guidance through the program.

Year 1 — participants complete a series of workshops to get a holistic view of their operation and identify areas of improvement to work towards throughout the program.

Year 2 — participants receive a $10,000 training budget, mentoring opportunities and support to implement improvements.

The Program incorporates the areas of agricultural production, business skills, natural resource management and biosecurity within a whole farm planning framework.
