What Are Open Days?
The Open Days are on Regenerative Farms on the SW slopes on NSW between the Murray and the Murrumbidgee Rivers. The artists have been producing artworks to reflect how they see the farming landscape. The artworks will be displayed and discussed at the open days. The artist, the farmer and guests will look at different perspectives of the landscape.

The days are open for the general public and include on-farm tours led by the regenerative farmer, the artist and speakers from a scientific and educational perspective. 

The Chefs will prepare a delicious locally-sourced lunch is also provided for all participants. 

Passion is a big part of both art and regenerative farming. The artists and farmers are on-hand to share their knowledge about artistic methods and the benefits and beauty to be found through regenerative farming practices.

  
What is Regenerative Agriculture?
In essence, Regenerative Agriculture is a broad term encompassing a range of farming practices that focus on enriching the soil, increasing biodiversity, improving ecosystems, enhancing watersheds and retention, and capturing carbon in biomass and soil. 

It is about bringing the land back to life.

The end result is healthy soils, plants, animals food and communities.
