ADOPTING REGENERATIVE PRACTICES

You can do it!

Australian farmers and land managers have long been recognised for their resilience and adaptability. Harness these characteristics to ensure wide adoption of regenerative approaches to landscape management to support sustainable production and address degradation of the Australian landscape.

Together, by better managing our soil, water, vegetation and animal systems through improved knowledge and a capacity to mimic, as far as possible, Australia’s highly effective natural processes, we CAN regenerate our landscape and enjoy healthy, profitable farming.

All of us, particularly those concerned with the landscape, must become landscape literate. We can start change from the ground up - in the paddock - and hopefully bring about a paradigm shift in thinking by research institutions, rural communities, funding agencies and governments to support regenerative landscape management practices across Australia.

Case study participant Anne Maslin of Gunningrah shares her experience of
adopting regenerative landscape management:





Dealing with the challenge of change

The farmers and land managers in the Soils for Life case studies serve as great role models, as they have seen the need for change, dealt with challenges and successfully managed changes to the operation of their enterprises.

Our case study farmers highlight the challenges encountered and overcome in changing behaviours and adopting regenerative landscape management practices. These include:

  • breaking away from the status quo
  • challenging their own knowledge and mindset
  • learning new and different theories, techniques and approaches
  • maintaining confidence and persistence in applying regenerative practices against their own and others’ traditional value

Read their stories...

We all appreciate that change is difficult, but it seems to be particularly so in landscape management. The number of farmers who have successfully transitioned to regenerative landscape management practices is small - but growing.

Make the decision to manage your landscape, produce quality and nutrient-dense food and fibre and build resilience against a changing climate and market fluctuations.
