*Free* Multi-Species Crops & Pastures Workshop
As part of our Regenerative Agriculture series we present our free, 'Multi-species Crops and Pastures' workshop with Simon Mattsson.
For farmers the second, (after themselves) most important thing in their business is their land, it’s where the bulk of their capital will be tied up. With that in mind the health of their soil is paramount as this will have the greatest influence on improving productivity and resilience to extreme climactic events.
For a soil to be healthy it must have good biological function and that only comes from having enough plant diversity since plant diversity, enables biological diversity which in turn creates a healthy soil.
Included in this event is a paddock walk with Simon post the morning session, so please ensure you are wearing suitable clothing including footwear.
This is a 'free' full-day workshop jointly funded by the Commonwealth and the New South Wales Government under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements and we thank them for their support with this project.

About our Speaker:
Simon is a regenerative farming educator and consultant with Soil Land Food. He focuses on managing soil biological function to improve soil for increased productivity and better environmental outcomes, particularly by using plant diversity plants to address soil constraints.
He grew up on a family cattle station near Mt Coolan and until 2020 managed his own cane and cattle operations in Mackay. A Nuffield Scholarship in 2014 to research soil biology was a pivotal point that has given Simon the confidence to apply his practical knowledge of soil health in an agricultural setting.
