MidCoast Council, with support from the NSW Koala Strategy, is expanding the Koala Safe Spaces Program by adding more options for landholders to participate. Carbon Farming is an emerging opportunity to potentially derive additional farm income, whilst supporting koala recovery efforts.
Opportunities for landholders
The relatively simple Environmental Plantings Pilot method (EPP) offers a great opportunity for smaller plantings of up to 200ha. As a landholder using the EPP method, you can:
- potentially manage your own carbon project without a carbon service provider,
- plan your project to maximise co-benefits to your property / farm business,
- plant locally native trees and shrubs to improve biodiversity and,
- generate carbon credits that can be sold for additional income or used to offset your own emissions.
Join us at the MidCoast Carbon Farming Workshop
We invite you to this event on Saturday 2 March 2024 at 09:30 am to learn about planning and implementing a carbon revegetation project. Government representatives will explain carbon farming opportunities, discuss the possible benefits, and answer your questions. We will also hear from local landholders about their experiences with on-farm revegetation projects and lessons learnt so far. Knowledge holders will be on hand to answer questions and discuss the opportunities on your property.
Join us at the end of the workshop for a BBQ lunch.
Also check out other Workshops in Stroud.
Tickets for Carbon Farming and Biodiversity Workshop can be booked here.
