The Limestone Coast Landscape Board are calling for applications for Round 2 of the 2022/23 Adaptive Agriculture Grant Program, which encourages sustainable primary production and supports agricultural, forestry and fishery groups and industries to adapt to changing climatic and market conditions.

Additional funding has been made available for local agriculture and industry groups implementing projects to build resilience and respond to the threats and market opportunities created by a changing climate and increased consumer demand for information on produce provenance and sustainable practices, as well as support for practices that improve and protect the condition of soil, biodiversity and vegetation.

Applications for Round 2 are now open with total grant funding available of $100,000, with a maximum application of $40,000.

If you have a great project that could benefit our region, go to the Limestone Coast Landscape Board website for more information and application details.

Applications close Monday 1 August 2022.

This project is funded by the Australian Government.
