The project aims to build capacity within the school community to gain skills and knowledge around regenerative agriculture and innovative farming practices.

    Key presenter Dr Maarten Stapper is currently working with AHS to trial different control techniques on Chilean Needle Grass and how utilisting innovative technology like the 'Soilkee Renovator' has been effective in trials that rebuild the soil health at the Armidale High School Ag Farm. The event will also run tours of sustainable agriculture intitives at NEGS Ag Farm and Equestrian Centre. The students and teachers from these schools will have the opportunity to showcase their initiatives and further support a network for sharing knowledge, experience and resources.
