Understanding the way farmers see their farm
Farmers and CSG workers may come from different backgrounds and this can influence communications between them. The CSIRO Shared Space project has shown that the aesthetics (visual aspects) of a farm is quite individualised and specific to the farmer, and potentially a cause for a lack of understanding from others.
This project aimed to understand how farmers from a range of production systems (extensive grazing to intensive cropping) perceive and value CSG developments on their and others’ farms.
