PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT WE ARE DEVELOPING A NEW WEBSITE ON A DIFFERENT PLATFORM. HOPEFULLY IT WILL BE UP AND RUNNING IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE. That is why this platform has a banner across the top, which is another reason to change platforms!

Why it is important to know where your food is grown!
This is the first event of our new series of 6 workshops designed to assist women who are involved with growing and marketing food in the Peel region 

In this workshop we will learn the benefits of buying local food....

1. The economic and nutritional benefits that are gained by supporting local growers that accrues to the whole community.

2. Develops strong relationships between people who grow and produce food, and helps to build food security for the consumer and land tenure for the farmers.

Exciting visit to WA by a world renowned soil ecologist...


We would like to publicly thank Dr Christine Jones for her Light Farming presentations, in combination with the switch your thinking, science week program. The information she has given to farmers and all people who want to grow something is amazing. If you feel the need to continue to follow the Liquid Carbon Pathway that she talks about visit her website www.amazingcarbon.com

All of those who came and listened to Christine now have a great opportunity to learn how to put her information to good use -

Coming up we have another series of workshops...stay tuned for more information.

Who is this you might say?

Well, we can tell you that it is a lady called 

Christine Jones.

Dr Christine Jones is an internationally recognised and highly respected soil ecologist and founder of Carbon for Life and we are very very excited to bring her to you.

 Christine has a wealth of experience working with innovative landholders to implement regenerative land management techniques that enhance biodiversity, increase biological activity, sequester carbon, activate soil nutrient cycles, restore water balance, improve productivity and create new topsoil.

In conjunction with switch your thinking we are able to hold TWO very special events with Christine.

These symposiums will explore regenerative agriculture and help landholders understand how these ideas can be implemented in a local context.

The first workshop is aimed at large scale commercial farmers and landholders on the coastal plain from Perth to Bunbury. (click here for tickets)

Proudly supported by... 


The second one will be more suitable for Peri-Urban farmers, (click here for tickets) large and small and is one of the 6 workshops being presented by the SJ Food and Farm Alliance on behalf of the

These workshops will be held in the heart of the Peel Region, Serpentine and Keysbrook, for information on the other 5 workshops (click here)
