Increasing small farms’ resilience to extreme heat, drought and bushfires

Small farmers in the Capital region are already experiencing the predicted patterns of climate change outlined in the Climate Change for NSW Snapshot but the options for adaptation are not well known. This project seeks to fill the information gap about strategies and techniques available to small farmers to address these challenges and adapt to climate change.

Listed below are resources for small farmers on climate change adaptation including event summaries with links to further reading and webinar recordings.

Find out how two farming families are applying the knowledge they learnt at workshops to their small farms in the video below. Suz talks about how she adapted her farming practices to conserve ground cover, improve pastures and her plans to manage water in the future, while Sam and Frank discuss how they are using burning practices to reduce fuel loads and regenerate the landscape. 

The Small Farms Network Capital Region received funding for this project from the NSW Government Department of Planning, Industry and Environment Increasing Resilience to Climate Change community grants program.

More information about the community grants can be found on the AdaptNSW website.
