Biological Farming Systems Field Day- Featuring Dr Charles Massy
RegenWA are hosting a ‘Biological Farming Systems Field Day’ at Richard Davy’s property – Windi Windi Pastoral, in Mettler to demonstrate how he has increased his production capacity and restored biodiversity through his biological approach to farming. It will bring together interested farming stakeholders for peer-to-peer discussion as well as a farm tour.

The day includes presentations at the shed, followed by a farm tour to highlight the crop agronomy practices Richard has implemented as well as to see a revegetation area that was previously a bluegum plantation. The day will finish up with a BBQ lunch back at the shed.
