June Biological Farming Roundtable – Toowoomba

WHO CAN ATTEND?

Open invitation to all farmers.

WHY?

The aim of the Biological Farming Roundtable (BFR) is to initiate discussion on biological farming, helping farmers explore innovative, low input, regenerative, profitable, productive farming systems. The group supports each other’s journey in an emerging regenerative agricultural paradigm where dominant conventional views can often be a barrier to change and success.
