In 2023 Sprout Tasmania applied for and received funding from the State Government (NRE) as part of the Strategic Industry Partnership Program (SIPP) in order to undertake a collaborative project on lease and share farming.

When discussing the project with organisations interstate that had conducted similar work we realised that there was scope to share some of the resources we aimed to produce. In order to realise this, and to open up the project further to allow for collaboration with Young Farmers Connect, we successfully applied for additional funding through the Sustainable Table Fund.

The Land Access Toolkit will compromise of:

  • Case studies from landowners, share farmers, and tenant farmers
  • Legal contract templates
  • Resources and recommendations for find land or finding farmers to farm your land, and how to negotiate agreements

This project is still be undertaken. Check back here or follow us on social media for updates on when the toolkit will be published.
