Finding your own little spot of paradise and then learning what to do with it is the focus of a small farm living day taking place at Lilydale.
NRM North and Lilydale Landcare will be hosting the biennial event.
Biodiversity and small farm living program coordinator Lauren Bird said the event is growing in popularity as smallholders seek ideas and advice on how to sustainably make the most of their parcel of land.
'We have recognised that there is a demand for information and resources particularly with more and more people moving into rural communities," Miss Bird said.
"The small farm living program helps address that need for information."
This year's event will focus on 'The Nature of your Farm' with presentations and displays on fencing, soil health, on-farm biodiversity, property planning and much more.
"I think it's always the dream to own a small patch of acreage in a place like Tasmania. We are very lucky to have a unique landscape so close to urban areas," she said.
"It's a way of people being able to have their own patch of paradise, I suppose."
She said a lot of people enjoyed having livestock on their property.
"We have also seen a lot of people that have wanted to maintain natural resources for biodiversity... wanting to preserve the natural habitat that's there."
She said the small farm day launched in 2013 with the intention of providing a community and support network to smallholders in northern Tasmania.
"The small farm living program really helps those people that might not have a farm background to understand and learn how to look after their properties better and to also develop a different skillset and live in a rural setting," Miss Bird said.
"With our network, we have definitely seen an increase in the amount of people that want information and resources from us, particularly people that might not come from a farm background."
The event is on October 6, at Lilydale's Sonoma Lodge.
