B+LNZ’s Catchment Community E-Forum

Have you considered joining or setting up a Catchment Community? Come and join our Catchment Community e-forum from the comfort of your own home.

We have joined together with Catchment Community farmer leaders from all around the country to answer your questions on Catchment Communities.

This is your opportunity to learn about catchment groups, how you will benefit from being involved and how to go about setting one up. 

This will be an interactive session with plenty of opportunity to ask our speakers questions about their experiences and lessons learned along the way as well as hear how B+LNZ’s Catchment Community programme and resources can help support your group.

Find out more about the B+LNZ Catchment Community Group Programme

With environment and potential regulatory changes big on farmers’ minds, B+LNZ understands the importance of catchment community groups (CCG) and the positive impacts they can have on farming communities. We have continued to significantly lift our support for catchment communities around the country through the B+LNZ Catchment Community Programme. The programme aims to support farmers in taking a leadership role to establish or run CCGs.

We offer you a range of resources to support your CCG including e-learning modules and a national catchment map that allows you to connect with other catchment community groups.
