Carbon farming refers to the land-based activities that store carbon in vegetation and soil (sequestration), or minimise the release of greenhouse gases from livestock, soil or vegetation (avoidance). These activities can generate tradeable carbon credits that farmers can use to offset their carbon footprint or provide a secondary income stream.
Workshop topics include:
- Why Carbon Farming?
- Is Carbon Farming Right for Your Business?
- Designing a Carbon Farming Project
- Help and Funding Available
- A Net Zero Future
Afternoon tea will be provided, please register via Eventbrite to reserve your free spot.
