Soil health, freshwater lobsters, nutrient-dense produce, fermentation and fencing are just some of the topics on the Lilydale Small Farm Living Field Day program.

Organised by NRM North and Lilydale Landcare, the event is designed for those who want to make the most of their small patches, NRM North facilitator Megan Dykman said.

“The day will have broad appeal for anyone with a small property or farm and will cover a lot of topics at the heart of land management,” Ms Dykman said.

“We hope landholders will also leave with new ideas and inspiration to explore their property’s potential,” she said.

The field day includes children’s activities and a barbecue lunch and is run through NRM North’s Small Farm Living program, with funding from the National Landcare Program.

Lilydale Small Farm Living Field Day will be held at Sonoma Lodge, 231 Golconda Road, Lilydale between 10am and 3.30pm on Sunday, October 22.
