Fresh from his life membership of CANFA and Golden Shovel Award, John Lawrie (aka Truk) has been inducted into the Carbon Farming Hall of Fame. The announcement was made at the National Carbon Cocky Awards Gala presentation Dinner in Dubbo on Tuesday 23 October 2012.

The induction recognises Truk’s vision and energy in endeavouring to get Australians to realise the potential of soil carbon. As a founding member of the organising committee for the Carbon Farming Conference (the only such function in the world!), for the inception of the Carbon Cocky Award, initially through the Central West Catchment Management Authority and for his overall commitment to see soil carbon recognised as a valuable resource, Truk has been placed in elite company

CANFA wishes to congratulate him on this honour and hope that he continues to have the energy and drive needed to pursue this notable journey that he has undertaken.
