The list of outstanding keynote speakers has grown for the Regenerative Agriculture Conference being held at the Margaret River HEART this September.
The two-day conference, delivered in partnership by the Shire of Augusta Margaret River (Shire) and the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD), will see new additions Terry McCosker, Professor Lyn Abbott, David Montgomery (USA), Noongar and Thiin-Mah Warriyangka woman Heidi Mippy and Wadandi-Pibulmun cultural custodian Zac Webb join the list of expert speakers.
Also in the new line-up are specialist farmers from around Western Australia as well as other states, including Jake Ryan, Rod O’Bree, Tom Mitchell, Mitchell East, and Kristy Stewart (Victoria).
These international, national and regional keynote speakers will address the most promising farming approaches for producing healthy food, building soil carbon, increasing biodiversity and gaining resilience to climate change.
We look forward to welcoming this knowledgeable group of speakers from far and wide into our shire, where we pride ourselves on sustainability across all industries. This is particularly true for agriculture, one of the biggest employing sectors in our shire and an important part of our local identity.
This conference is a great chance to connect with a range of experts and to showcase our own home-grown regenerative agriculture examples.
Full-day workshops and field trips will also be available either side of the conference. Check out the full list of keynote speakers and further details and buy your tickets from Regenerative Agriculture Conference 2023 website now.
