Capability, Suitability and Sustainability – Small Farm Roadmap

If you own a small holding in the Tamar Valley and aren’t sure what to do with the land, or would like advice on what the land might be suitable for, this event is right for you.

Rob Moreton from the Department of Primary Industries will explore land capability in the Tamar Valley, including soil, geology, climate and what physical resources are important for sustainable land use.

He will then explore Land Suitability – which land is best for which type of farming enterprise. He will demonstrate The LIST – the government on-line mapping tool which is an invaluable resource for land holders.

Lauren Bird from NRM North will explain Property Management Planning and demonstrate NRM North’s tools for effective property planning.

Annette Reed, owner of the Tasmanian Natural Tomato and Garlic Farm, will discuss the human side of owning a small property – the skills needed, the decision-making processes, the impact of family circumstances on a farming enterprise.

This is a FREE event – but bookings are essential.

When – Wednesday 17th March 2021

Time – 10am to 3pm

Lunch and refreshments provided

Location – Prospect Government Offices, 171 Westbury Road, Prospect.
