The Northern Agricultural Catchment Council (NACC) and Australian Carbon Traders are teaming up to offer free workshops on the Federal Government’s Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI) in various regional towns.

The CFI offers land managers opportunities to earn money from activities that store carbon in the soil or reduce certain harmful emissions.

The workshops are a great opportunity to learn about carbon farming, what it is, how it works, and how it might affect you.

Workshops will be held in Morawa and Mullewa on February 15, and in Geraldton and Binnu on February 16. For more information on the workshops go to the NACC website nacc.com.au.

To learn more about the Federal Government’s Carbon Farming Initiative visit the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency website.
