Why Attend?

Join us for the second toolbox session in our efficiency series, delivered in collaboration with Taranaki Catchment Communities (TCC).

The Roper family have an impressive riparian project on farm and have explored different ways to foster the growth of a variety of plant species. We'll check out the significant strides they've made in managing these areas and what plans they have for the future.

We'll also cover:

  • Positioning dairy to win in sustainability - how can Taranaki farmers continue to contribute to a future-focused sector?
  • Biodiversity - why is it important on farm?
  • Managing riparian areas - how can we ensure they evolve and thrive to support our sustainability goals?
  • Trapping for our future - what pest management strategies are working in the region?

Plus, we'll discuss Freshwater Farm Plans and what tools are available to support you with sustainable management of freshwater resources.
