FISH Creek farmers Dan and Amelia Bright will share their experience of designing their farming system for resilience in a changing climate in an online field day hosted by the local Landcare network.
The couple from Amber Creek Farm and Sawmill operate a mixed farming business growing free range pigs and a timber milling operation.
Dan will discuss the design of Amber Creek farm, including the benefits of using local sources of waste as a resource and regenerative methods for soil improvement, and Amber will cover how the Prom Coast Food Collective supports local farmers and reduces food miles in the Zoom session between 10am and noon on Friday, October 9.
