Save the Date - Sustainable Farms research results workshop
The Sustainable Farms team will be holding a ‘Research results workshop’ on Friday 4th June at the Wangaratta Regional Study Centre (approx. 9.30am-2pm) and I’d like to invite you to ‘save the date’.
The event will include presentations by our academic and field-based researchers on our long-term research ecological research on farms, farm dams study including initial cost-benefit analyses, as well as the links between natural asset management and mental health. There will also be the opportunity for discussion around future research directions (local priorities), collaborative opportunities, and ways to accelerate practice change on farms. A more formal invitation with the full agenda and link to register, will be sent out in the next couple of weeks. So I will pass this on via the next eNews.
