Tune in on July 30th to learn about the on farm practices Tom and Emma are using and get an opportunity to ask Tom specific questions about how they regenerate their farm land.
Tom Mitchell farms 20 Hectares North West of Gingin with his wife, Emma and two daughters. In 2012 they transitioned the business to take a more biological / regenerative approach across their farm. Their enterprise is comprised of a market garden where they grow pumpkins in the summer and mixed cover crops in the winter and a lime and mandarin orchard.
They have introduced cover cropping and green manuring to their market garden operation and have drastically reduced the amount of cultivation and have eliminated the use of all fungicides from their operation and drastically reduced the amount of pesticide use.
This RegenWA webinar is part of a series looking to improve knowledge of RegenWA members and Western Australian farmers, and provide an opportunity to head directly out to the paddock to implement the tools and practical ideas suggested in the webinars.
RegenWA believes in regenerating our regional landscapes and communities.
We focus on supporting farmers who are investigating alternative production practices with the aim of minimising or reversing the impact of productivity constraints like climate change and soil acidity.
With the interruption to our Farmer Field Days we have turned to providing these webinars which provide an opportunity to hear from other like-minded farmers and practitioners about how and why we can transition to more regenerative farming practices.
