In 2012, NRM North commissioned a report from consultants Wombat Creative to guide how we should best engage with smallholders in our region. One finding of the surveys and focus groups undertaken by Wombat Creative was that smallholders rely heavily on the internet for information about farming and land management. In light of this, NRM North decided to include a web-based resource centre as part of its Small Farm Living program. The goal is to provide smallholders with a first 'port of call' for information relevant to them, rather than having to wade through information aimed at large, commercial farmers, or information from interstate or overseas, and determine what is useful for their situation.
The information is from a wide range of sources: government and non-government; Tasmania and elsewhere.
We hope you find the Small Farm Living Resource Centre useful in your endeavours to thrive on and look after your small property.
In order to keep the Small Farm Living Resource Centre as useful as possible for landholders like you, please let us know if any of the documents or links are not working. We also welcome new resources to add to the site; if you find a useful resource you would like to see included, or just have general feedback about the site, please contact us. Note that all suggested resources will be assessed for accuracy, relevance and distribution permission before inclusion.
