In 2019 MASG received funding from the North Central Catchment Management Authority (CMA) to facilitate a three year program about regenerative agriculture methods.
Regenerative agriculture has been identified as a critical means by which we can mitigate climate change and also develop greater resilience to the effects of global warming. The practice draws carbon down into the earth and out of the atmosphere, which can be measured though testing for organic carbon levels in the soil. Healthier soils store water and nutrients better making more resilient plants and more drought resilient landscapes.
The three year program involves workshops and information sessions for a core group of local farmers. They commit to adopting the regen ag methods during that time and have their soil tested before and after to assess any changes in its carbon levels.

Our next event will be help on January 31st, 2020
