A group of proactive farmers in the Hakataramea Valley aim to assist and encourage the protection and enhancement of the environment in the region.

Juliet Gray from the Hakataramea Valley joins Rural Exchange to talk about the group’s up-and-coming Hakataramea Sustainability Collective Field Day.

The field day will feature independent consultant Keith Woodford and Irricon’s Keri Johnson and Nicole Phillips as event speakers.

The event, taking place on March 20, sets out discuss the future for the unique land resource in the Hakataramea Valley.

“How can we start thinking about what we know is coming, in regards to regulation?” she asks.

Ms Gray said her group wants to lead, rather than be led by others on new regulations.
