Ten ways to improve the natural assets on a farm
Sustainable Farms is delighted to launch our new booklet, Ten ways to improve the natural assets on a farm. The booklet highlights ten discrete projects that farmers can undertake to improve the health of natural assets – such as dams, shelterbelts or riparian areas – on their properties.
The Ten Ways booklet highlights how one small change on a farm could create new habitat for native animals and lead to increased stock productivity. The publication is underpinned by 20 years of long-term research into biodiversity on farms. It also represents a knowledge collaboration that’s occurred over two decades between the farmers who are undertaking management practices, and the ANU ecologists supporting farmers’ observations with science.
We are pleased to provide this booklet for free to interested landholders in our project area – parts of the NSW Murray-Riverina, Central West and South West Slopes, and North East Victoria.
