Informed consumers are increasingly placing pressure on meat, wool and grain markets for ethically and sustainably produced products.
To support producers to adapt to the market and to improve sustainability and viability of their farms, MMLAP is hosting a regenerative farming mentorship program. This will provide local farmers an opportunity to gain practical skills and knowledge to ultimately adopt regenerative farming methods that will not only meet market demand but also lead to increased production, and profit, improved NRM (natural resource management) and benefits to biodiversity.
Champions of regenerative agriculture practices will mentor farmers through a series of workshops, field days, farm tours, online forums and regular communications between with farmers.
We support regenerative farming farmer networks that bring together like-minded producers and provide farmers with technical guidance to help achieve their regenerative farm goals.
This project is supported by the Murray Mallee Local Action Planning Association, through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.
