WELCOME: New regenerative agriculture officer Sarah Voumard.

Natural Resources Eyre Peninsula has a new regenerative agriculture officer Sarah Voumard as a result of funding from the federal government's National Landscape Program.

She said having grown up on a farm near Jamestown she knew the importance of the partnership between production and environmental management.

"Regenerative agriculture is about rebuilding soil organic matter and restoring degraded soil biodiversity to increase agricultural production in unison with managing the environment," she said.

"There are resources available across the EP to support landholders and my role is connecting these landholders to the resources that they require."
