The Tamar NRM Carbon Forum will present the findings from five carbon farming audits and the practices that have been taken to reduce emissions. The evening’s keynote speaker Richard Eckard, Professor of Livestock Production Systems and Director of the Primary Industries Climate Challenges Centre at the University of Melbourne, will present a national perspective. Special guests from the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture, soil carbon accreditation companies and other industry experts will feature in a Q&A panel discussion and answer any specific questions from the audience following the forum.
The field day will showcase the early stages of the Notley Valley Farm approach in setting up a carbon negative operation to offset emissions. The farm is designed to be profitable and financially and climatically resilient and focuses on agroforestry, biodiversity conservation and grazing.
The field day will be held from 1.30-4.00pm at Notley Valley Farm, Glengarry and the Carbon Forum from 5.30-8.30pm at Moores Hill Estate Winery on 25 February.
