Greater Sydney Local Land Services Host Free Small Farm Workshops in Richmond | Hawkesbury Gazette

Small farm owners in Hawkesbury are invited to take advantage of a series of free workshops this month to help them make their small plots of utopia more sustainable.

The hands-on property planning workshops delivered by Greater Sydney Local Land Services (LLS) in Richmond are designed to give small landowners expert advice and insight into all aspects of sustainable, resilient and practical property management.

Attendees will also learn practical tools and tips to ensure they achieve their business and lifestyle goals.

Greater Sydney Landcare Regional Facilitator Madeleine Florin said the events will guide landowners through the ins and outs of best practice property planning, step by step.

“This is a three-part series that will help people identify and holistically achieve their property management and lifestyle goals,” she said.

“A real estate plan provides a foundation for effective and sustainable land management and does so through a self-assessment that asks where you are now, where do you want to go and what tools and information are available to help you get there. arrive.

“Best practice concepts and principles such as viewing your property as an ecosystem within a working landscape are provided along with planning tools such as a comprehensive manual and self-assessment guide that provide a framework for the process.”

The workshops are not designed to show right or wrong ways of doing things, and everyone will get a good shot of a bottle of gravy.

“There are many ways to develop a real estate plan. Our manual will walk people through one approach, but each individual and each property is unique, so it is not a prescriptive process and people are neither tried or tested,” Ms. Florin said.

The series of workshops will begin on May 12, with an introductory session with other events on May 20 and 27.

All workshops will take place at the Greater Sydney Local Land Services Demonstration Farm in Richmond.
