Farm Planning Masterclass with Darren J. Doherty

Darren J. Doherty (CPAg AIA) takes you through the ten layers behind The Regrarians Platform®, developed to provide a structure for a strategic, holistic and logical process to agroecological landscape and enterprise planning which ensures all elements are taken into account.

The Regrarians Platform® builds on ‘The Keyline scale of permanence’ (‘KSOP’), a concept first outlined in 1958 in “The Challenge of Landscape — The Development and Practice of Keyline” by P.A. Yeomans (1905-1984), an Australian mining and agricultural engineer.

The platform consists of ten layers which are all explored within this masterclass:

1. Climate
2. Geography
3. Water
4. Access
5. Ecosystems
6. Buildings
7. Fencing
8. Soils
9. Economy
10. Energy
