The six farmer-led catchment groups of the Aparima river catchment have come together to develop and implement the “building our future together with our community project” over a three-year period.
ACE have been granted funding for this project through Thriving Southland’s Change and Innovation Project. Thriving Southland supports and enables community catchment groups to work together for a better future for all. The Change and Innovation Project is funded through the Ministry of Primary Industries’ Sustainable Land Use Programme.
With increased awareness of the impacts on land and water as well as shifting consumer behaviour, there is a real opportunity for the food and fibre sectors to meet these challenges. Listen to industry leaders below speaking on how the food and fibre sectors are researching, innovating and leading to reduce the farming environmental footprint.
More than 160 people attended the Future Farming Expo 2021 in Otautau on June 11 to hear from leading experts on how the food and fibre sectors are researching, innovating and leading the way towards a sustainable future in a rapidly changing world.
The expo was presented by the catchment groups of the Aparima Community Environment (ACE) project.
