Helping small farm enterprises to be more productive and resilient - Bathurst Workshop

Central Tablelands Landcare is one of the partnering organisations for this event. The workshops are focussed on sharing ideas for building better more resilient local small farm producers - I am really looking forward to the days - hope to see some of our membership there as well. Here is some information being released about the event.

Two first-time events, one in Bathurst on 19 May and the other in Orange on 2 June are being organised by the Bathurst Wholefood Cooperative to bring small enterprise farmers the latest information on the benefits of cooperative farming. These Building Community Resilience events are supported by NSW Industry and designed to improve farming outcomes through understanding sustainable practices and how to find and nurture local markets.  Energy, labour, crops and other farming inputs will be presented by a wide range of experts, such as Dr.

Marita Sydes from Central Tablelands Landcare, Phil Cranney from Local Land Services, Lorraine Gordon from the Farming Together project and Ashley Bland from Skillset Environment.

Designed to be interactive, with collaborative workshops, one-on-one discussions and specialist stall holders who service the small farming community, the events will attract a strong audience.

David Sikora, one of the event organisers, said this program was an important step in building a significantly stronger small farming community in the region that would be able to encourage diversity, explore better vegetative options and assist in cooperative market developments.

"Support from NSW Industry in helping small enterprises is invaluable in assisting with our vision of a more collaborative and resilient local agriculture industry and community," he added.
