Eager to help farmers share their stories, Karin Stark organized Australia's first 'National Renewables in Agriculture' conference

Eager to help farmers share their stories, Karin Stark organized Australia's first 'National Renewables in Agriculture' conference

Serendipity led me to talk with Karin Stark (pictured with her daughter) about her, and her partner's endeavours to reduce the energy costs of running their Narromine farm in central west New South Wales.
Karin was one of two guests on a recent "Regional Horizons"' webinar staged by Farmers for Climate Action.
Along with her partner, Karin has installed a 500-kilowatt solar-powered pumping system and it was through seminars she had been organizing that she got to know the company ReAqua, which installed the impressive system on her farm and she now works part-time for the South Australian-based group.
Karen's first National Renewables in Agriculture conference last year, it attracted 250 people, was to be followed by another this year until Covid-19 came along and so the next event will be in Dubbo, New South Wales, on May 19, 2021
