Our Sustainable Industries team has been busy planning a series of informative workshops and events for the Wheatbelt farming community. Ranging from mixed farming and feral control through to dung beetles and carbon tools, these free workshops are designed to build knowledge and share experiences.
Mark these dates in your diary and keep an eye on social media and eNews for more information, times and locations.
