“The Carbon Neutral Farming project’s objective is to have more farmers involved in GHG reductions and in doing so improving the profitability, resilience of their farming operations and at the same time providing for on-farm and off-farm environmental benefits.”
Tamar NRM strives to provide projects and programs that are relevant to northern Tasmania and values your feedback.

CASE STUDIES & Presentations:
Northern Tasmania has many options for retaining carbon on farm where it does the greatest good.
Three Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Audited Farm Case Studies examine options for GHG reductions through mitigation and adaption.
These can be accessed via our “Reports” tab.

It is a festival of science in nature that will provide useful scientific data to land managers while also being fun, enjoyable and meaningful to the community. The Trevallyn BioBlitz was a collaboration between scientists, naturalists, students and the general community coming together to undertake a range of flora and fauna surveys.
The Trevallyn BioBlitz held 17 session over 2 days in early December, with 150 people attending! So much to see, building community’s knowledge of, and skills in, the natural sciences and increasing community understanding of the importance of biodiversity and improving the connection to the local environment.

Our signature events across the Tamar Valley the RAGWORT RAIDS have officially concluded, but we encourage those landholders who have this declared weed, to control it before it seeds. Our gratitude to the more than 50 volunteers willingly giving of their time to pull Ragwort on Roadsides over Jan/Feb 2021.
Our signature weeding event that is really making a difference in the Tamar Valley concluded in February.
In addition to the 25th November “Farms as Ecosystems” evening presentation, Tamar NRM’s Small Farm Roadmap project is offering the opportunity for 20 producer properties to attend a free workshop with Matthew Evans.
From 1.30 to 3.30 pm selected landholders will share their building biodiversity and sustainable farming experiences and observations at a farm in the West Tamar.
What you need to do to have your farm selected:
The selection of the 20 farms will be merit based and you can enter by simply completing the Survey Monkey 7 question on-line form:
