Exciting news from the Talkin Soil Health Conference held in York! Jolene Daniel was recently announced the South Coast Regions Soil Health Champion. In recognition of Jolene’s outstanding achievements, we are very proud to release this short film, showcasing her farming life in Needilup.

A Soil Health Champion is a farmer who is taking strong action to improve the health of their soils. They demonstrate the principles of sustainable agriculture and natural resource management. These are farmers that strive for excellence in the food they produce and believe healthy soils are not an option – they are mandatory. They are the farmers of today who will influence our farmers of tomorrow

Jolene was recognised as a passionate advocate for soil health improvement. She continually strives to trial new approaches to see what adapts well on her farm in Needilup. Her philosophy aims to restore the health of the natural landscape to provide thriving and productive agricultural and natural ecosystems.

A very worthy winner, and soil champion. Congratulations Jolene!
