Goulburn Biological Farming Roundtable
Biological Farming Roundtable events travel around Australia helping farmers explore innovative, low input, regenerative, profitable and productive farming systems.
The events are usually hosted by a leading farmer in the area and are supported by educational speakers, empowering those who attend to use the tools of nature available to regenerate land and grow nutrient-dense food profitably.
NB $40 includes morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea (fresh fruit provided, those with dietary needs please BYO)
Hosts: Craig Hunt

KEY SPEAKER: Walter Jehne
Walter Jehne is an internationally recognized soil microbiologist. He has immense field and research experience in soils, grasslands, agriculture and forests at local, national (CSIRO and Science Adviser to Australia’s National Soil Advocate), and international (UN) level.
Walter’s specialisation is the role of soil microbes’ symbiotic processes in plant and soil function. Decades of research have made Walter an expert in plant root ecology, mycorrhizal fungi, glomalin, and soil carbon formation. He has also worked on biology’s enormous influences in hydrological cycles and weather patterns.
