Soils are one of your farm business' most important assets. At the heart of your natural capital, they underpin a modern regenerative farm business. Without a healthy soil it is hard to maintain a productive, profitable and resilient farm enterprise in the long term. 

Kiewa Catchment Landcare Groups (KCLG) has partnered with agroecologist David Hardwick from Soil Land Food, for this practical, hands-on workshop series where you will get tailored support to develop a soil health plan for your property. 

If you are in farming, grazing, dairying or horticulture and you want to improve your soil management, then this course is for you! As we go through the program you will learn how to identify soil constraints and key nutrient issues that may be holding back your enterprise.
