A virtual farming experience

Lawry Pitman is a farmer from Corrigin in Western Australia. Lawry served his community for many years at the national, state and local levels on community, industry and government committees covering topics as diverse as land management, farm safety and commodity groups.

Now he’s using all his experience and knowledge, and his own property, to showcase sustainability. ‘To prove that we are sustainable we are attempting to measure and monitor all aspects of sustainability - economic, social and ecological. Benchmarks are being set with the help of Western Australian agencies and R&D corporations.

Progress, or deterioration will be communicated to the community through whatever means is required’ says Lawry.

Lawry is producing a CD-ROM describing the annual cycle, and costs and benefits of sustainable farm practice on a real life, working property.
