World Soil Day (WSD) is held annually on 5 December as a means to focus attention on the importance of healthy soil and to advocate for the sustainable management of soil resources.
RegenWA and Perth NRM will this year be hosting a World Soil Day event at Muresk Institute in Northam to highlight our Western Australian Farmers and the actions they are taking to look after their precious farmland soils.
This will be a farmer-centric event, highlighting practical opportunities and innovative solutions farmers can look at implementing on their own property.
There will be trips out to the paddocks to see what Steve Wainewright has been trialing on the Muresk farm, opportunities to look at your soils under the microscope, plenty of opportunities to chat with fellow farmers and hear how they are improving their soil health.
We’re planning a family-friendly day, so mark it in your calendar now.
