2-day on-farm workshop - Grazing Naturally

Wednesday 5th May at 9:00am - Thursday 6th May at 9:00am

Workshop with Dick Richardson. Dick is an internationally recognised leader in the practice of natural grazing to improve soil depth and health, water retention, increased biodiversity and animal production.

Grazing Naturally is born of Dick’s passion for nature and his insights into the symbiotic relationships with nature that create the impulse to drive change. His approach is intensely practical, born out of his vast experience in running grazing enterprises in many different and challenging environments around the world and now in Australia.

Last November Dick presented an online recorded webinar to CVRF members as an introduction to his ‘Grazing Naturally’ principles and followed up with a live online Q&A session.

Registrants to this workshop will be offered access to this video as valuable pre-workshop preparation and also background notes from his online presentation.

Cost: CVRF members $90 Non-members $180
