Landcare Australia are looking for producers who are interested in knowing how carbon footprint and natural capital schemes can underpin industry sustainability strategy reporting, future investment, and potential new markets to get involved in a new project being run throughout 2021.

The Landcare Farming Program team will deliver a series of carbon footprint and natural capital accounting workshops to develop an awareness and adoption pathway for on-farm integration.

The chance to take part is available to beef and sheep graziers, dairy farmers, broadacre cropping and horticulture producers.

Expressions of Interest for workshop groups of at least 10 producer participants close on 20 Jan 2021.

Workshop participants receive a tailored property report, comparison against industry benchmarks, and a personalised strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) analysis of their carbon/environmental account. Regional hubs will be set up to help with actioning SWOT plans.

Participants will have the chance to become accredited as a natural capital accounting expert, or to develop their basic understanding of trade carbon if interested, each opportunity opening up potential new income streams for regional groups and landholders.

For more details or to register your expression of interest, please visit the Landcare Australia website or contact the Landcare Farming Program Manager Mick Taylor via email at or phone 02 8440 8804.
