Farmers to get down and dirty at Nana Glen

SMALL to large scale primary producers will have the chance to learn about the environmental and economic benefits of organic certification at an Organic Farming Day later this month. 

Hosted at Synchronicity Farm on Sunday, June 21, the free full day agri-industrial workshop will focus on all things 'down and dirty' from compost and waste reduction from an organic perspective to sessions on how farmers can transition to certified organic production.

The workshop is being offered by Australia's leading organic certifier, the National Association for Sustainable Agriculture, Australia (NASAA) as part of the Coffs Harbour Regional Council Growing Innovation series, in conjunction with Synchronicity Farm, MI Organics and TM Organics Pty Ltd.

The workshop will be presented by legendary Australian organic trainer and best-selling author Tim Marshall.

NASAA operations manager and workshop organiser Peter Hastie said farmers will learn how to enrich and improve soil, increase the yield and health of plants, reduce water use, and eliminate the cost of landfill for farm waste.

"If you want some solid advice, based on science and practical experience, these workshops are for you," Peter said.

"Tim Marshall brings 30 years of organic experience and know how, a common sense approach to organic growing and a sense of humour to the sessions and will de-mystify the compost process.

The free Organic Farming Day will be held at Synchronicity Farm, 632 Orara Way, Nana Glen on Sunday, June 21 from 8.30am to 4.30pm.RSVP: Sue Mills 66484087 suzanne. mills@chcc.nsw.gov.au
