Farming Together is excited to release our second podcast in the series, Quality Timber Traders members bound by passion for rainforest timbers.
Amanda Scott speaks to Martin Novak and Dr Joe Harvey-Jones, board members of Quality Timber Traders. They are an enthusiastic group growing native rainforest timbers that was formed through the Farming Together Program.
Martin and Joe talk about their decision to keep their motivated group of rainforest timber enthusiasts engaged through a more informal association, rather than forming a formal co-op or joint venture.
They talk about how sometimes the experts and solicitors don’t have all the answers, and how members worked together to produce the successful Woodfest event.
- Initially exploration of a joint venture model structure.
- Working with solicitors.
- Keeping people motivated, regardless of business structure.
- Starting small and basing decisions on beliefs.
- The success of the Woodfest event.
