Question: What Stands About 5 foot nothing tall and has the energy of 10 men?
June 9, 2015 Louisa Kiely
Good Morning All – The answer, of course is Jan Grady! She is the powerhouse behind this conference – or should I say two day education course with all the experts in one place! She wanted me to remind you that its only a few weeks to get registered, and also remind you of the following, very important aspects of the conference. So, here is a letter from Jan. (and as she reminds me of ‘Aunty Jack’ from the ABC series of the same name, I’d do as she says!)
“As you know” she begins “CARBON CREDITS are a hot topic of conversation with Farmers all over Australia.
“We know you are keen to learn how to access a share of the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) $2.55 billion put on the table by the Federal Government.
“This is not Grant money. It has to be earnt…. and $250 million has already been distributed to the Land Sector through the 1st ERF Auction”!
The pathway to gaining this new income stream sounds complicated! But all will be explained by the expert Speakers and Exhibitors at the 8th National Carbon Farming Conference 7-10 July at Albury NSW.
“This conference is NO talk fest” says Jan ” It is designed for delegates to be able to ACT on the information they receive – in time of the next round of the ERF! It keeps Landholders and their advisers and product providers up to date with the very latest information about CARBON TRADING. Louisa and Michael use their experience and knowledge to gather the most practical and expert speakers in Australia.
“At the Carbon Farming Conference & Expo this year Delegates will learn about all the NEW METHODS available through the Governments DIRECT ACTION, hear case study presentations by early adopters who have earnt BIG DOLLARS to drought-proof their properties ….. and most importantly talk to the many Project Developers on hand who will guide Farmers through the process of deciding the Method/s they should use when registering for CARBON CREDITS“.
Earning CARBON CREDITS is no longer just about Soil and/or Trees.
“In a Carbon Farming First” says Jan “Delegates will learn how A Whole of Farm Audit will identify multiple METHODS for Farmers to use eg Soil Carbon, Finishing Beef Earlier, Feed Supplement, Mobile Farm Machinery, Stationary Pumps, Trees (do not discount them – plant them, save them, use the GREEN ARMY program) … just to name a few!!
“There are now so many new opportunities for the Land Sector to earn CARBON CREDITS over the next 10 to 15 years and drought-proof their properties…BUT there also so many more competitors in this space….. including BIG companies who will gain access to the ERF by reducing their Emissions”.
SO – TIME FOR FARMERS TO GET ORGANISES AND BUILD THEIR CARBON PLAN …. NOW!
“The 2nd ERF Auction is anticipated to be held later this year” she continues. “Farmers should be working closely with Project Developers or their local Landcare Group or other Natural Resource Management Groups, getting their advice, preparing their Projects and using group buying power to get the best deals”.
