Tom Mitchell joins us for our second RegenWA webinar with a WA farmer to give us an insight into how he manages his market garden and orchard in a way which is regenerating its natural resources while remaining commercially competitive.
Tune in on July 30th to learn about the on farm practices Tom and Emma are using and get an opportunity to ask Tom specific questions about how they regenerate their farm land.
This session offers an opportunity to learn, provoke thought, ask questions and provide some tools to take home.
Tom Mitchell farms 20 Hectares North West of Gingin with his wife, Emma and two daughters. In 2012 they transitioned the business to take a more biological / regenerative approach across their farm. Their enterprise is comprised of a market garden where they grow pumpkins in the summer and mixed cover crops in the winter and a lime and mandarin orchard.
They have introduced cover cropping and green manuring to their market garden operation and have drastically reduced the amount of cultivation and have eliminated the use of all fungicides from their operation and drastically reduced the amount of pesticide use.
This webinar series is looking to improve the knowledge of RegenWA members and Western Australian farmers, and provide an opportunity to head directly out to the paddock to implement the tools and practical ideas discussed in the webinars.
