Learn how to improve your soil health and your bottom line

Sick of using more inputs and getting less production? Want to learn how to improve your soil health and your bottom line? If so, two workshops entitled ‘Productive Soils, Productive Farms’ could be just what you’re looking for.

The South West Catchments Council (SWCC) has secured the services of internationally-acclaimed agroecologist and educator, Nicole Masters, to run a 1-½ day workshop in Donnybrook on August 29/30 and a full day workshop in Katanning on August 31.

Participants will deepen their understanding of what drives plant health and performance, learn how to build farm resilience and build observational skills for assessing soil quality. The workshops will focus on soil biology and its influence on the soil’s physical and chemical properties. This will ultimately improve farmers’ bottom line.

Two local groups are supporting the events – the Donnybrook Orchard Improvement Group (DOIG) and Katanning Landcare.

“This workshop is an opportunity for farmers to take back the power and improve their soil while reducing the cost of inputs,” DOIG chaiperson Jason Jarvis said.

The Donnybrook event will have one day in the classroom and a half day in the field looking at soil and costs $50 (no GST).   The one-day Katanning workshop will spend time both in the classroom and in the paddock and the cost is $44 (incl. GST).

Places are limited, so to avoid disappointment register now.
