Applications are still open for the next intake of the Land Services Program.
The Land Services Program is a two-year program designed to help participants set and reach their individual goals for their farming operation through training opportunities and one on one support specific to their property and aspirations.
The Program incorporates the areas of agricultural production, business skills, natural resource management and biosecurity within a whole farm planning framework.
In year one participants complete a series of workshops to get a holistic view of their operation and identify areas of improvement to work towards throughout the program.
In year two participants receive a $10,000 training budget, mentoring opportunities and support to implement improvements.
Previous participants of the program have improved their business finances, landscape management, clarity for the future, completed ground works and connected with experts and other
like minded producers in the region.
If you are interested in participating in the Land Services Program, please complete an expression of interest form or contact Claudia Bryant on [email protected] or 0448 796 109 by the end of this month.
SCREENING OUR STREAMS PROJECT
There is a fantastic opportunity for landholders to participate in a project that will save native fish populations while simultaneously improving the quality of water delivered to their property.
Landholders who join the project will be provided up to $5,000 to assist them to install a fish-friendly screen on their pump intake.
Fish-friendly screens save farm businesses water, time and money while contributing to the health of the river system.
Interested landholders should read the guidelines prior to submitting an expression of interest.
EOIs must be submitted by 2 December 2022.
