Farming with changes

A one day event, to be held in Bathurst in November, aims to focus on the positive aspects of economic and environmental sustainability of farming in Australia.

Organised by Greening Bathurst, the Our Farming Future conference will center on the themes of farming with nature and climate change.

Regenerative farming, sustainable grazing, Aboriginal farming practices and ecological agriculture will be some of the topics covered.

Dr Charles Massy, Cooma grazier and author, and Bruce Pascoe, Kulin man, farmer, fisher and author of ‘Dark Emu’, will be the keynote speakers. The remaining sessions will be presented by ten farmers from the region, including Colin Seis and David Lowe, sharing their good news stories.

The one day conference will be held from 9am-5pm on Saturday 10 November at the Flannery Centre, 341 Havannah St, Bathurst.
