Local conference to support agriculture and agricultural industries

Members of the farming and agriculture industry are invited to attend the North Coast Region ‘River to the Sea’ Agriculture Conference to be held in Kempsey on July 28, 2022.

The conference offers local farmers and the agricultural industry the opportunity to meet and identify other ways to work together to achieve longer-term sustainability.

Business Affairs Manager Gayleen Burley said the conference will showcase our region while providing opportunities to build stronger relationships with other local businesses in the industry.

“We are delighted to bring high profile, in-person guest speakers to Kempsey to increase the resilience of our local industry to changing weather conditions,” Ms Burley said.

“Supporting local businesses to make connections to help improve well-being and resilience is a big part of the speaker program. It is also an opportunity to celebrate the wide range of local products from our region that have been developed or diversified during the drought and now after the drought.

ABC landline presenter Pip Courtney will be your MC and keynote speaker. Pip will be joined by other well-known Australians, including Australian cricketing legend Steve Waugh. Topics to discuss include:

  • Overcome adversity and build your business resilience
  • Agricultural sustainability
  • Longer-term impacts of natural disasters
  • Agricultural tourism opportunities
  • Farm Safety and More

Tickets are $25 per person for the full-day conference, including morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, post-conference drinks, and snacks. This event was supported by the Foundation for Rural Regional Renewal (FRRR) with funding from the Australian Government’s Future Drought Fund.
