Small Farms Gib Changes - Eli on farm cropped Tweed Shire Council has been awarded a grant from the NSW Environmental Trust to conduct a series of farm field days and workshops over the 2019-2020 period.

To help design the most relevant and productive workshop series possible, Tweed Shire Council engaged Southern Cross University to determine the educational needs of Tweed’s farmers, their preferred methods of engagement and to seek ideas on the best strategies to address environmental challenges on our local farms.

The survey closed on April 30th, 2019 and the results will be made available on this page in the near future.

There will be a focus on prevention strategies and non-chemical control methods. The day will be facilitated by a range of soil health, weeds and pasture experts.
