Sustainable Farms Field Day

25th May 2022

A great turnout for a successful field day on May 19th in Penna. In partnership with the Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI) folks joined us at Jansz vineyard to learn from prominent national and state experts on sustainable farms and integrated pest management with a viticulture focus.

As part of our 2022 Outreach Program we brought together members of the community, researchers and seasoned sustainable viticulturalists to share learnings in a diverse array of sustainability farming principles.  In the beautiful landscape of Jansz vineyard we heard from a rich program of speakers talking climate risk, water asset management, organic farming, farm ecology, biodynamics, non-chemical weed control and more. 

This was an essential workshop for those endeavouring to farm for the future and nurture our environment for generations to come.
