Farming Carbon conference explores soils, trees, productivity, contracts and accounting

Carbon can be confusing, and there are many options for farmers to engage in carbon markets, many of which are still evolving.

Next month’s Farming Carbon 2023 Conference, which will be hosted at the George Kerferd Hotel Beechworth on Tuesday, 28 February 2023 between 9.30am and 4.30pm, meets a growing need to promote awareness of what carbon farming is all about.

Australian Institute for Alpine Studies Symposium

In mid-December the North East Catchment Management Authority attended the Australian Institute for Alpine Studies Symposium to share research related to Mountain Pygmy-possum Recovery in the Victorian Alps.

The symposium was held in Jindabyne, and was opened by Gnublum-John Dixon (Ngario elder) sharing a welcome to country and smoke ceremony using various types of eucalyptus leaves, each releasing a distinct smell and smoke.

The symposium was well attended with presenters and participants arriving from Victoria, NSW, and the ACT, all contributing to a packed agenda of sessions related to:

  • Caring for mountain ecosystems
  • Mountain plant ecology
  • Mountain fauna
  • Mountain soils and hydrology

Cross Regional Victorian Alpine Peatland Protection Project

The Cross-Regional Victorian Alpine Peatland Protection - North East is a 5-year project that serves to protect and increase the abundance of alpine peatlands.

Alpine Peatlands, or Alpine Sphagnum Bogs and Associated Fens, are an endangered ecological community listed under the EPBC Act (1999) that are crucial for providing habitat and for modulating water flow and maintaining the hydrology of surrounding environments.

This five-year, cross-regional project is coordinated by the Victorian Alpine Peatlands Project Coordinating Committee (VAPCC) and delivered in collaboration across three CMA regions (North East, East Gippsland and West Gippsland) with Parks Victoria.
