The Nelson Tasman Climate Forum is thrilled to announce our webinar series, where we will be joined by experts across a range of fields as they share their knowledge and experience with us.
First up, we have John King and Greg Hart leading a discussion about regenerative agriculture. We welcome you to join us to learn more about what regenerative agriculture is, how it can be used, and the connections between regenerative agriculture and climate change. This event is open to anyone with an interest in learning more about regenerative agriculture, including those who have never heard that term before and those who are unsure about its relevance to climate change.
As a Holistic Management educator and field professional, John has trained farmers in Australia and New Zealand for over 20 years. He has organised over 250 group educational events and published over 150 times in the media. John works with RMPP groups throughout NZ, boosting farmer confidence and skill for regenerative farming practices. Read more about John’s experience and qualifications here.
Raised on a family farm near Methven, mid-Canterbury, Greg earned a Bachelor of Agriculture from Massey and worked in an agri-business consultancy firm in Ashburton, as operations manager in a livestock export company and as grain marketing manager before beginning the farming journey in 1996 at Mangarara Station Elsthorpe. There, Greg and wife Rachel are transitioning their traditional sheep and cattle station to a farm of the future with regenerative farming systems, restoring ecosystems, tree planting, sequestering carbon and building healthy soil.

Spaces are limited, so be sure to register to secure your spot! Those who register will be emailed a link to join the webinar via Zoom before the event.
