Ecological Credits (Offsets) for your farm
ORICoop is seeking interest from organic farmers interested in understanding more of the ecological natural capital value on their farm. While the Government and many organisations grapple with this complexity - we are interested to get down to the soil and better agroecological farming systems, and connect the aligned value with the stewards!

This survey will tell us where you see the value, and we can then assess how or if we can assist. Make sure you include suggestions of other ways we could enable more value to be captured over time on your farm.

This will be a limited trial - to a select number of farmers that are ORICoop members and have clear outcomes of increasing the carbon in their farming system.

Please add any suggestions or further parameters that may assist farmers to capture more of their 'ecological or natural capital value' ....
