Can I still come?
March 13, 2014 Louisa Kiely
We’ve been fielding lots of calls from farmers and had a great response to our ‘Farmers attend FREE’ offer. The conference will be a wonderful platform now to drive farmers forward to participation in a new market. Much work to be done, but engagement in the knowledge is key.
Some however, are now asking – Can I still come? Farmers make decisions on a day by day basis and need to be as flexible as the weather is so unruly at times. And many other things can happen day to day.
So thought to write a quick note.
The answer is YES – Registrations still open. We are still processing farmer requests, and non farmers welcome as well. I’ll even take some walk ups. My caterers will kill me, but so what. Getting the knowledge out is more important.

The story is NOT just building- its about to become real – for farmers and for Australian soils. Our conference is a mixture of conference and the best education around, so don’t forget to:
