In celebration following the passing of the Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI) Legislation, Carbon Farmers of Australia will be holding a conference event and expo at Dubbo on 27-29 September 2011.

The conference offers farmers and scientists the opportunity to share their ideas on carbon farming. The event will include an awards dinner, a half day workshop and a day-long festival of natural fertilisers. The main focus on the expo will be on preparing farmers to trade the carbon credits they would soon be earning under the CFI.

According to a recent survey, conducted by the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation (RIRDC), not every farmer would be interested in getting involved with the trading farm carbon offsets. However, the survey also found the majority of farmers wanted to change their practices in order to meet the challenges of Climate Change, but needed financial support to do so.

”That is why ‘preparing to trade’ is a central theme of this year’s Conference. We have secured expert speakers from the global world of carbon trading and the highest levels of the Government,” says Carbon Farmers of Australia, conference organiser, Louisa Kiely.

The Carbon Farmers Conference will feature a range of keynote speakers, such as Courtney White of Quivira Coalition, as well as Carbon Farmers such as Jeremy Bradley from the Lismore district.
