The Fleurieu Forward Farming steering committee was formed in April 2016, as a cooperative venture between the Parawa Agricultural Bureau and the Fleurieu Beef Group, also involving local independent agribusiness consultants, to provide oversight for projects looking at soil fertility and health issues that affect pasture and thus grazing enterprise productivity, in the western Fleurieu Peninsula sub-region of SA. The Group has since become incorporated with a new motivated, appropriately skilled governing Board being appointed to drive the group forward to its next stage of development.
