Environmental Markets & Carbon Farming Workshop - Sisters Creek

Date: 15th March 2023

Time: 10am-1:30pm

Panel discussion and Q&A 10am - 12pm, followed by walk and talk

Location: Redbank Farm, Sisters Creek

Price: Free of charge, however registration is mandatory.

(Image: Redbank is a 380 hectare property, in north-west Tasmania operated by the Nichols family for over 20 years. An exemplary enter-prise for profitability and sustainability, almost one-third is natural bush, wetlands and revegetation areas).

We will have a panel of expert speakers that will hold a Q&A and discuss a range of topics, including:

  • What market benefits can farmers get from the natural capital of their land?
  • What are carbon and environmental markets?
  • Pro’s and con’s of existing markets
  • What might it look like on the ground for farmers to be marketing their natural capital? 
  • What are the experiences of each of the panellists in the carbon/environmental markets?

After the discussion we will head out for a Walk & Talk around the property to explore these concepts further. 

We will provide morning tea and a cuppa. Please come prepared for rain, hail or shine.

Rowan Eisner

Healthy landscapes: enabling human wellbeing through healthy interactions with nature. I'm a conservation scientist currently working as a modeller/lecturer in agricultural systems at the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture. I did a permaculture design certificate in 1990 and love the idea of a design system for a sustainable human culture but am skeptical about methods which are sometimes promoted without adequate evidence. The issues which we are facing are too important to not base what we do on good evidence.

There are huge hopes that those caring for the land can contribute to solving the worlds most pressing problems, and there is great potential. To what extent can agroecology contribute to these solutions?


This workshop is a part of Landcare Tasmania's Landscape Restoration and Community Outreach programs, and is funded by the State Government's Landcare Action Grants Round 5.
