Register now for workshops to find out more about funding for carbon farming projects
The Queensland Government’s Land Restoration Fund is a $500 million investment in the expansion of carbon farming in Queensland. The Fund provides farmers, landholders and land managers with the support needed to participate in carbon farming projects on their properties.
Carbon farming projects involving better land management practices offer farmers, landholders and land managers the opportunity to increase the productivity of properties and generate an extra stream of income, which can provide a safeguard during tough times, like droughts.
The second intake of the $100 million 2020 Investment Round of the Land Restoration Fund is now open. Applications close on 15 April 2020.
To help landholders apply for carbon farming projects under the Land Restoration Fund, the Queensland Government is running a series of workshops across Queensland. Two workshops are being held this week in Mackay and Caboolture on Friday 13 March.
Attendees will have the opportunity to hear advice from specialists from government, industry and the carbon farming sector regarding the application process. At the workshops, participants will:
- Discover more about how carbon farming can bring new income streams while restoring soils and vegetation.
- Meet industry experts who will be able to provide specific information to landowners’ properties.
- Be able to individually talk to guest speakers and presenters.
- Understand how to apply for support to help pay for further advice about their project.
The events will also be a great opportunity to interact with other landholders that may be interested in partnerships to collaborate with new carbon farming projects.
