Soil Webinars

Soil Health Webinars

22 May – 5 June, 2013
Soil health is the one of the most important issues in farming. Australia has some of the oldest and most fragile soils on the planet and thus the topic of soil health cannot be ignored. The National Landcare Facilitator in partnership with Soils for Life presents three webinars on ‘Regenerating Australia’s Soil Health’. The series of webinars have been developed with farmers and others with an interest in land management in mind. They aim to help drive a national conversation around soil health, share information and ideas from leading figures such as former Governor General and Advocate for Soil Health, Michael Jeffery, leading scientists and importantly farmers from across the country who are implementing changes on their farms.

When:
Part I: Wednesday 22 May 12:30pm AEST
Healthy Soils – why is this important, what is the science telling us and a view from on the ground
Part II: Wednesday 29 May 12:30pm AEST
How do we practically regenerate our soil health?
Part III: Wednesday 5 June 12:30pm AEST
How do we measure and extend effective practices?
