At the heart of Extension 350(E350) was a farmer-led and farmer-focused ethos, and the opportunity for farmers to learn from farmers, with a critical role being played by the mentor farmers, sharing knowledge and advice with target farmers. Such a model builds supportive, long-term relationships that foster trust and respect and encourage both practical and theoretical knowledge transfer. These are the outcomes that E350 has tested and proven over the last five and a half years, working alongside 384Northland farmers, as evidenced in the outcomes and learning shared in this report.
Over the past 5.5 years our consultants Kim, Gareth, Bob Thompson and Tafi have been involved in the Extension 350 project that completed in June this 2022.
