Charlie Arnott announced as keynote speaker

Healthy Landcare | Healthy Landscapes


NSW biodynamic farmer and grazier Charlie Arnott will give the keynote address in what promises to be a fascinating and insightful presentation from the winner of the 2018 Bob Hawke Landcare Award. Charlie practices regenerative farming, organic, biodynamic and holistic grazing principles on his 5,000 acre mixed farming property, “Hanaminno”, at Booroowa, NSW.


Passionate about growing clean, healthy meat, Charlie’s approach and practice of biodynamic and holistic principles demonstrate every aspect of the Landcare ethic. Charlie hopes to inspire more farmers to adopt organic and biodynamic practices on their properties so they too can benefit from enhanced landscape biodiversity, healthy plants and animals.

Charlie has been an active Landcarer since the inception of the Landcare movement in 1989, with previous roles in all levels of Landcare, from district groups to the Sustainable Farming ambassador for Landcare Australia. Visit Charlie’s website to learn more about his story and philosophies.

The Bob Hawke Landcare Award acknowledges a person who has demonstrated a remarkable commitment to caring for the land, champions best practice and gives their time to share knowledge with others so that they too can prosper.
