The New Age Co-op Collaborative farming in 2017
20 November 2017 until 21 November 2017
Join us to hear from BIG PICTURE FARMERS who have thought OUTSIDE THE BOX to build their farming enterprise in line with their community. We are running two events for interested community members to attend and learn more about this community-centred approach to farming.
From a community food movement working to utilize disused fruit blocks...through to an enterprise based on matching aspiring farming families with retiring farmers and investors. These sessions include presentations from:
- Sunraysia Local Food Future
A food movement working to support the local community to utilize disused fruit blocks and in turn create a local food economy
- Southern Graziers
A local farming business looking to share farming models to start a grazing operation without capital to buy land. Could this provide an opportunity for younger generations to get started?
- Village Greens of Willunga Creek
Village Greens is a small, diversified organic market garden made up of farmers who are passionate about sustainable agriculture and the blossoming local and fair food movement in Australia
Loxton event only
- John Gladigau of Bulla Burra
Bulla Burra collaborative broad acre farming enterprise: John is a Nuffield Scholar, fourth generation farmer and brings to the table his vision to reduce costs, increase efficiencies and increase profitability of family farms.
