Discussion Groups

The WPCLN currently runs 3 diverse discussion groups which anyone is welcome to participate in.

  1. Sustainable Farming Discussion Group
    The Sustainable Farming Discussion Group runs on a monthly basis and is held at a different farm each month. Each month a different topic is covered with the topics decided by the participants. These could include; managing wet soils, aeration, pasture id, pasture management, weed control etc. This group is targeted towards grazing farmers (primarily beef & sheep) and we are a friendly bunch of farmers! Information notes are produced each month and these can be found here. If you would like more information please contact Peter at peter@wpcln.org.au
  2. Organic Vegie/Fruit Growers Discussion Group
    The Organic Vegie/Fruit Growers Discussion Group meets bi-monthly on a different fruit or horticulture farm. You don’t have to be certified organic to attend, but the group is specifically geared to meet the needs and interests of farmers growing organic vegies/fruit. This group was established in 2015 and provides a wonderful opportunity for organic growers to meet and learn from others. It is facilitated by Chris Alenson. Information notes are produced each month and these can be found here. If you would like more information please contact Peter at peter@wpcln.org.au
