Bioscapes – Understanding biodiversity and how it works at a farm level
June 3, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm
Ever wondered what is meant by biodiversity? How can biodiversity help your farm? Is there more than just the feel good factor? Is there any money in it?
On the day we will look at examples of nature working for you, including how native bird life can control large amounts of insect pests on your property, how shade and shelter can improve stock production, how wet lands can protect water supply and how native plants can improve the resilience of the pastures through drought and disease outbreaks. We will look at the advantages and how to monitor biodiversity. We will also touch on grants and stewardship payments that can help you maintain your biodiversity.
So if you want to know how biodiversity can work for you then this field day is for you.
