Support for small farm owners

Small farm owners are being urged to take advantage of a free hands-on property planning workshop series with special guest, Kim Deans from Reinventing Agriculture along with other guest presenters.

The workshop series consists of two sessions, separated by a week. Small and medium sized landholders will gain expert advice and insight into all aspects of sustainable, resilient, and practical property management as well as practical tools and tips to ensure owners reach their business and lifestyle goals.

Greater Sydney Regional Landcare facilitator Madeleine Florin said the events will take property owners through the ins and outs of best practice property planning step by step.

“It will help people identify and holistically reach their property management and lifestyle goals,” she said.

“A property plan provides a basis for efficient and sustainable land management and does this by stepping through a self-assessment that asks where you are now, where do you want to go and what tools and information are available to help you get there.

“Concepts and best-practice principles such as viewing your property as an ecosystem in a functioning landscape are provided along with planning tools such as a comprehensive workbook and self-assessment guide which provide a framework for the process.”

Ms Florin said that property planning is underpinned by taking a holistic approach.

“There are many ways to develop a property plan. Our workbook will guide people through one approach but each individual and property are unique, so this is not a prescriptive process and     people are not being judged or tested,” she said.

The 2-day workshop series will be held in Camden on 13 & 20 October and Wyong on 27 & 3 November.

Places are limited, please register online.

This event is funded by the Early Needs Recovery Program which is part of the $150 Million Primary Industry Support Package, which is co-funded by the Australian and NSW Government.
