The Sustainable Land Series

Snowy Monaro Regional Council in partnership with Upper Snowy Landcare is excited to introduce the Sustainable Lands Project. This project is supported by the Department of Agriculture Water and the Environment through funding from the Australian Governments National Landcare Program.

Through a series of 12 free workshops and field days, delivered over two years, the project will help landholders to better understanding and apply sustainable land management principles.

Experts on Soil Science, Holistic Farming, Traditional Land Management, Native Plants, Biosecurity, and our local Monaro Champions of Regenerative Agriculture will meet to share knowledge and experience and inspire others in the region to adopt sustainable farming methods.

By connecting farmers and landowners with industry champions, this project hopes to support a connected, resilient, community of practice. Meeting local champions on their farms will demonstrate firsthand the benefits of adopting sustainable land management behaviours and encourage everyone to ‘have a go.’

Landholders are encouraged to participate in the project’s Community Based Social Marketing initiative, which aims to identify and address common barriers to adopting sustainable land management methods.

Due to COVID restrictions, you must please pre-register to attend this event. A COVID plan will be in place, including entry/exit points and social distancing of 1.5m.
