Thursday 27 June

The mission of Moonacres School for 2024 and beyond is to provide educational and inspirational learning opportunities that supports Moonacres Farm and its commitment to soil health, sustainable farming and regenerative agriculture.

An expanded Moonacres school with an extended focus on education will build on our existing community and further empower individuals with the understanding and tools needed to foster sustainable farming practices to improve the health and well-being of communities and help drive the change for a more sustainable future of our food systems and environment.

Our farm aims to produce the best quality food in a manner that nurtures the land. "We humbly accept that farming is, by its very nature, hard. Weather, weeds, pests, machines and even best laid plans, will sometimes turn sour and crops will fail. But this is part of our job, and we are committed to working with nature, not against it. Doing this, we enrich rather than rob our environment – and our collective future'. - Phil Lavers

In this, In Conversation, we are collaborating with The Mulloon Institutes Executive Landscape Planner, Nolani McColl to discuss their vision " to rehydrate and restore landscapes using world class scientific research, education and demonstration sites and, to rebuild landscapes that are resilient to climatic extremes, capable of providing food and water security and supporting healthy ecosystems".

Their research through the Institute is focused on creating more resilient, productive and profitable landscapes where agriculture and the environment are working in unison to combat the impact of changing climatic conditions.

Its research methodologies take a multi-dimensional integrated research approach with three key elements:

  1. Environmental impact of rehydrating landscapes

  2. Economic impact of landscape rehydration on landholders, community and the nation

  3. Social impact of landscape rehydration on community members.

After the conversation with Nolani, Suzannah Cowley will lead a Q&A with Moonacres founder Phil Lavers and Nolani about their water and land management strategies.

Come along and find out how a focus on soil health can build more resilient farming systems together, address climate change and create healthier food and a brighter future for everyone.

Join us as we have the conversation, answer questions and inspire everyone to care about, protect and restore our soil for future generations and learn how we can support local farmers who work tirelessly to provide nutritious food for us and protect and rebuild our natural resources.

The conversation will commence at 6:00pm, followed by light refreshments. 

The team at Moonacres and the Mulloon Institute look forward to seeing you soon.
