Build a stronger, smarter farm – Biloela

QFF horticulture industry member Growcom is hosting an on-farm workshop in Biloela.

Cyclones and severe weather events over recent years have taken a toll on many farms’ core assets – soil health and fertility, sheds and irrigation systems… not to mention the bank balance!

This on-farm workshop is an opportunity to meet speakers with experience in repairing damaged soils and expertise in rebuilding a stronger, smarter farm business – ensuring your finances and essential infrastructure are primed to cope with whatever nature throws at you next. All primary producers are welcome to take part.

1pm: Lunch, a chance to network with the speakers and other growers.
