Do you own a small farm or lifestyle property?
The `Every Bit Counts' project recognises that small farms and lifestyle blocks play an important role in managing our natural resource and agricultural environments. This new project will coordinate workshops, local resources and build a connected community to help all small landholders manage their land better across south east NSW.

The `Every Bit Counts' project aims to engage landholders in the regions of South East, Hunter, Greater Sydney and North Coast Local Land Services. Across these four regions there are over 85,000 2-20 hectare properties, making up approximately 18% of all properties.

Small Landholder Networks
A number of Small Landholder and Farmer Networks currently exist across South East NSW. By joining us for FREE you will connect to hundreds of like minded landholders trying to improve their land, livestock production and environment. A regular newsletter will keep you informed of workshops, events and funding in your local region.

We are currently in the process of establishing a network on the Southern Highlands so we're particularly keen to hear from you if you have a small holding there.

How to get involved
Whether you are a hobby or small-scale professional farmer or own a rural lifestyle property we are keen to hear from you. Landholders can register online http://eepurl.com/1GlTv or contact Andrew Britton - Small Landholder Engagement Officer on E: andrew.britton@lls.nsw.gov.au or PH; 02 4464 6008.
