12:00pm Friday, 3 November 2023
Various regional centres
across the state, Queensland 4207

Please join us at an upcoming workshop to discuss potential usage and requirements of organic composts and soils.

This free workshop, hosted by the Australian Organics Recycling Association (AORA), will be facilitated by highly respected Queensland Agronomist, David Hall, and will also be an important opportunity to hear how the Queensland organic recycling industry is positioned to respond to farmer needs.

As you may be aware, Queensland agricultural production has been identified as a key market for end usage of recycled food and garden organic (FOGO) materials. Previous studies have identified the strong economic, employment and environmental benefits of recycling organic waste and turning it into materials for value add to the Queensland economy and community. AORA Queensland has received funding from the Queensland Government to establish agricultural market specifications and demand for Queensland organic composts and materials.  

This workshop is part of a series of workshops being held all over Queensland with farmers to identify:

  • Farmer demand for composts and soils;

  • Farmer specifications for composts and soils; and

  • How much farmers are willing to pay for product.

The key objective of the workshop is to discuss and in turn enable Queensland organic recycling industry to create products that meet your specifications.   AORA is very optimistic that this workshop will inevitably lead to improved productivity and lower production costs for Queensland farmers.

There is no charge for attendees for this workshop;  proudly supported by the Queensland Government through the Department of Environment and Science, but bookings are essential
