About the workshop
The 'Farm Planning: Introduction – your farm, risks, and actions' Workshop supports the development of an active (written) farm plan. It includes documenting (or further documenting) key farm resources, opportunities, management of risks, implementing actions and the framework for monitoring and reviewing farm plans.
This workshop is suitable for farmers with an existing Land Environment Plan (LEP) or Farm Environment Plan (FEP) and those wanting to start documenting their farm plan. The workshop style will cater to all farmers, and you can learn from others and work together on common risks and opportunities.
- You’ll learn hands-on, practical techniques you can use every day to identify and assess land management units and discuss the opportunities this provides for current and future management.
- You’ll start mapping your farm into Land Management Units, the basis of the environment module of a farm plan.
- We’ll also consider risk assessment – identifying key risks and prioritising appropriate actions, and implementation of your farm plan.
At the completion of this workshop, you are likely to have recorded key features of your farm’s natural resources, major land management units and identified key risks and the actions that can manage these risks. You’ll be armed with the practical tools you’ll need to start or refine your B+LNZ farm planning journey and be well placed to attend future, topic specific workshops to further document your farm plan.
Registration essential as there are limited places.
Successive workshops will enable you to focus on specific, topic-based activities such as forage cropping (including intensive winter grazing), biodiversity, responding to climate change and freshwater ecosystem health. These subsequent workshops will apply the same approach to documenting farm planning, enabling actions to be considered across the entire farm system.
