Information session for carbon farming projects
Burdekin landholders interested in developing a carbon farming project attended an information session in Charters Towers, in April.
The aim of the workshop was to provide information about opportunities for carbon farming and service providers and support networks in the region.
The Land Restoration Fund (LRF) partnered with NRM Region Queensland and the Queensland Farmers Federation to run carbon farming information sessions across the state for landholders. Regional Agriculture Landcare Facilitator – Burdekin Dry Tropics Region Peter Arthofer helped facilitate the workshop.
LRF supports landholders to generate new, regular income streams through carbon farming projects, while generating valuable co-benefits such as healthier waterways, increased habitat for threatened species, and more resilient landscapes and communities.
Read here about five projects started under the second round of LRF funding.
The LRF opened a third investment round, with up to $50 million available for high-quality carbon farming projects and up to $10 million per project.
