From the Ground Up

September 18, 2019 - September 20, 2019

OCRF are proud to bring to the Corangamite Region a conference focused on Regenerative Agriculture.

As the cost of inputs rise and the challenges of farming in a changing climate become more pressing, we need to find new approaches to managing our farm businesses.

Regenerative agriculture can help you reduce costs by more efficiently using the resources you already have available.  Through working with natural inputs and learning to work more effectively with natural processes, regenerative agriculture can help improve your soil, pastures and livestock health while also improving your bottom line.

Hosted by biodynamic farmer, grazier and 2018 Bob Hawke Landcare Award Winner Charlie Arnott, this 3 day conference introduces you to the fundamental principles of regenerative agriculture.  The program includes presentations, panel discussions and field visits with a host of experts including Dr Christine Jones, Dianne and Ian Haggerty, Kym Kruse, Colin Seis, Grant Simms and Tammi Jonas.

18 September: Why do we need Regenerative Agriculture?  What is the history of our landscape and what does this tell us about the future? What do we need to understand about our changing climate and how are communities coming together to respond to challenges?

19 September: How do we do Regenerative Agriculture? Foundational technical learning in building and maintaining healthy soils, ground cover and pasture management.

20 September: What would my business look like? Hear about examples of successful regenerative agriculture businesses at all scales. Understand the challenges and opportunities that you might face.

This program covers topics relevant to farms at all scales, production types and stages of business.
