First steps in getting a catchment community group started

We revisit the key messages from our first Catchment Community E-Forum and our panel of farmer leaders discuss in more detail the first steps they took to get their Catchment groups up and running.

This video is part of a four-part series covering B+LNZ’s Catchment Community E-Forum: Part 2. This E-Forum took place on 28 July 2020 and was facilitated by B+LNZ's Extension Manager Maria Shanks.
