The plan is to run a bus tour on the 14th February to a couple of local farms doing great work with soils and pasture species. That night there will be a barbeque for all bus tour participants and anyone else who has arrived early in preparation for the next day.
For the day itself, 15th February, we have already have 3 international speakers booked, plus several from interstate as well as numerous locals.
We are hosting a meal in the evening to give attendees the opportunity to mix and connect. 
Friday 16th will see one of our speakers holding a workshop for interested farmers on farm and at a local community hall.
