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.
“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.

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.
