Natural Resources South East will provide important information about carbon farming at their upcoming 'Carbon Farming Tour' on November 21.

They said: "Is carbon farming is an option for your business? If you have questions like; is carbon farming profitable? What does carbon farming do for the soil? Where is carbon farming predicted to go in the future? What are the additional benefits of carbon farming? Then this is the tour for you."

Natural Resources adaptive agriculture officer Nicola Turner says that there are exciting developments in carbon farming and encourages anyone interested to attend.

"We will be investigating what carbon farming looks like on farm, some of the overall benefits of carbon farming as well as observe the changes in soil from increasing carbon," Ms Turner said.

"If any of these areas interest you, then join us on a half day tour. We will be hearing from a landholder about how carbon farming works on his farm.

"You will also be able to talk carbon farming logistics, methodology and technical detail with an aggregator, who can help you navigate your way to developing a carbon project, and hear about soil carbon in a sandy environment from a soil consultant."

Keen participants will be travelling by bus that will depart from Bordertown.
