Soils for Life is involved in various projects aimed at meeting our Program Objectives:
Starting in 2016 we are partnering with natural resource management agencies to encourage the wider adoption of regenerative landscape management through a comprehensive farmer-to-farmer mentoring program.
In 2014 The Rotary Club of Sydney partnered with Soils for Life to encourage the wider adoption of regenerative landscape management. Our joint project, Soils for Life / Rotary Club of Sydney Western Division Resilient Landscapes Project focuses on the drought-prone Western Division of NSW and aims to help farmers learn how to manage their properties to minimise the impact of drought on production and landscape health.
Since 2012 Soils for Life has been hosting and supporting various field days and events to demonstrate and share regenerative practices and the experiences of farmers who apply them. Visit this page for the schedule of any upcoming events and to register to attend. You can also read about previous events and download presentations by the farmers and guest presenters.
Soils for Life has identified a number innovative farming enterprises and landscape management organisations achieving success through regenerative landscape management. These farmers are demonstrating profitable and sustainable farming while continuing to improve the natural resource base. We captured their experiences in the original 19 case studies in 2012 and are continuing to add new stories of regenerative landscape management in practice.
Many farmers find it a daunting prospect to change the way that they manage their properties. Teaming up with successful case study farmer Shane Joyce we show how he approaches starting from scratch on a new farm to build a healthy, regenerating landscape, through his blog from new property Kumbartcho.
We believe it is important for all children to be aware of the importance of healthy soil, to have a better understanding of natural systems and to know where food comes from. We're working with schools and educators to ensure more primary schools have a school garden and access to great teaching resources to help educate our kids.
