Regroup on Revegetation

Wednesday 7th December 2022

Approximately 60 attendees joined us in Wagga Wagga to discuss the future of revegetation on farms and what we need to consider going forward. Topics included the need to engage with and learn from First Nations people, funding of projects through environmental markets, to what resources are needed.

For 30 years, Landcare has driven grassroots change in natural resource management and landscape restoration, created local knowledge and experience in land management and restoration, and pioneered an ethical mind-shift in communities. Farmers and the Landcare community will now need to prepare for a future where climate change and natural capital income streams form part of farm business and drought resilience strategies.

Funded through the Federal Government’s Future Drought Fund – Drought Resilient Soils and Landscapes Grants Program, our Landcare-led Landscape Resilience – Tools and Data for Restoration Decisions’ project will aim to boost private, on farm investment in natural capital and enhance resilience through climate-ready revegetation.

Landcare-Led Landscape Resilience – tools and data for restoration decisions

Funded by the Federal Government’s (DAFF) Future Drought Fund (FDF) Drought Resilient Soils and Landscapes (DRSL) Grants Program, the project will build on Landcare’s successful grassroots change in landscapes management. It will demonstrate practices that enhance on-farm natural capital which underpin productivity and drought resilience of farms.
