Sunshine Coast Council Sunshine Coast Agriculture Farming Film Night

RegenAG® – a family enterprise committed to helping regenerate Australia’s farms, soils, communities and on-farm livelihoods – in conjunction with SEQ Catchments, is holding a community film and networking night on the Sunshine Coast.

Head to Nambour Civic Centre on June 30 from 6-8.30pm to see four short films documenting a farm study tour taken by 17 Australian farmers to Mexico, Costa Rica and Ecuador recently.

Attendees will hear how Latin farmers are beating the odds against rising input costs, water charges and declining soil health.

Entry is a gold coin donation. The Nambour film night is one stop on a state-wide series of these events – for more information about these events visit www.regenag.com.

The Sunshine Coast Regional Economic Development Strategy identified agribusiness as one of the region’s seven high value industries. Council is currently developing an industry and investment plan for the sector.
