National Industry-led Carbon Farming Outreach Program

This two year project will deliver a nation-wide carbon farming outreach program, largely in broadacre and pastoral industries.​

Led by the Grower Group Alliance, this project unites 40 farming and land management groups from all states and the Northern Territory with a combined partners’ membership of 20,000+ farming businesses. ​

Grower groups will provide training on a local scale, partnering with farm advisory service providers to deliver trusted, reliable advice to an estimated 3,500+ farming enterprises. Participants will be armed with capacity to reduce emissions, sequester carbon and consider carbon farming opportunities.​
