Help make Outback carbon farming a reality

Carbon farming is breathing life back into the Wheatbelt. But just over the fence in WA’s Outback, where it's needed most, it's not allowed.

Kent Broad has been a farmer all his life and he's seen first-hand the benefits that carbon farming has brought to WA's Wheatbelt - but the Outback is missing out.

Help make Outback carbon farming a reality - tell government today.
