Farmers and Landholders
Our production industry plays a key role in driving the Tasmanian economy. By supporting farmers, landholders and producers on projects that contribute to the sustainable management of our natural environment, NRM South helps to improve landscapes and keep them healthy so that they can continue to return dividends to farmers, the community, the environment and the economy in the long term.
We facilitate and support innovation and improved practices, and share knowledge and information by running workshops and events as well as providing links to information, advice, ideas and events that can help landholders manage or improve their properties.
Law of the Land Workshops
NRM South recently ran a series of workshops in collaboration with Environmental Defenders Office, Kingborough Council, Tasman Council and Glamorgan Spring Bay Council. The workshops provided information to help participants understand their rights and obligations under current legislation, as relevant to a wide range of agricultural and property management activities. Some of the information presented is now available to download here:
Resources and information
If you are a landholder looking for some advice or someone to chat with, take a look at our Resources and Events pages for any relevant information, or otherwise feel free to get in touch by phone, email or in person, or have a chat with your local NRM Facilitator.
There are a range of publications available on our Resources Page specific to landholders wanting to improve property management including weeds, revegetation, farm practices and conservation. Several publications will soon be available hard copy for minimal cost.
NRM South runs a series of Property Planning Programs through the Healthy Farm and Healthy Catchments series and a range of shorter courses on individual topics. NRM South has also worked with other extension services including RMCG and the Tas Farming Futures project.
Funding is intermittently available for specialised projects – refer to our Grants page for funding opportunities.
