Welcome to Farm Writers

The Farm Writers' Association of NSW holds monthly lunches and regular evening functions to bring people involved in farming, food and fibre together with agribusiness leaders and rural journalists, to discuss issues and developments in the NSW farm sector.

Financing the future of farming

Friday 23 September 2022, 12:00 for 12:30pm

As a nation heavily reliant on foreign investment to drive growth in our agriculture sector, what opportunities and challenges exist for farming communities due to changing global market conditions – are our farmers up for the challenge of chasing scarce capital in global markets?

Join our panel of experts as we investigate how to finance the future of farming in Australia.

Putting a value on farmers' natural capital

Friday 28 October, 2022, 12pm for 12:30pm

NSW is leading the nation, as the first State Government to join the global movement recognising the economic value of our environment.

According to the UN World Economic Forum, more than 50% of global Gross Domestic Product is dependent on nature, and Australia ranks fifth of 140 countries likely to experience the highest economic losses if environmental challenges are not addressed.

By investing now, NSW can play a fundamental role better valuing our natural capital. Join NSW Minister for Environment and Heritage James Griffin to learn about the opportunities available to landholders and managers through the state's Sustainable Farming Program and Natural Capital initiatives.
