Future Focus at Wauchope Rural Centre on Thursday 21 September 2023 from 5.45pm

Get ready for a dry Spring and hot Summer.

Are we supposed to be worried about a possible El Niño summer, making the hot and dry years even hotter and drier? Would that impact the cost of food? Remember the infamous $12 iceberg lettuce of winter 2022?


You might want to attend Future Focus with discussions on "How do we effectively manage our land, livestock, businesses against challenges such as climate, natural disaster and pests? What does all this mean for accessibility of feed and our harvests"?
