Working alongside farmers nurturing our natural assets and connecting a functional and sustainable growing future.
The Blackwood River region is an area of prime agricultural land that supports multiple industries from vineyards, tourism and olive groves to beef, sheep and cropping operations. The Blackwood Basin Group (BBG) works with landholders of all sizes and backgrounds in caring for land and water sources on their property to create a resilient and ecologically sound farming system.
The BBG works collaboratively with local farmers and landholders to offer workshops, field days and trials packed with information and practical tools that can be applied on-farm. Our events cover all aspects of soil health and feature relevant topics such as on-farm monitoring, climate change, carbon farming, stubble retention alternatives and biological farming. Our extensive network means we can keep you up-to-date on the current soil health trials, exciting upcoming events and projects both locally and around the region.
