Our Purpose

The Soils for Life Program has a principal purpose of enhancing the natural environment through the provision of information and education on innovative leading performance in regenerative landscape management, with a particular focus on the Australian rural landscape.

Our Objective

To facilitate positive and sustained change in how the Australian landscape is managed to ensure a thriving natural environment for the benefit of all Australians.

Our Program

The Soils for Life Program facilitates improved environmental landscape management through a phased approach:

  • Phase 1:    Identify leading practice in regenerative landscape management and document, demonstrate and promote those practices.
  • Phase 2:    Address the impediments to the wider adoption of leading practices and build incentives and momentum for change through support, education and training.
  • Phase 3:    Encourage the adoption of these regenerative landscape management as the norm across the agricultural landscape in Australia, setting a positive example for others through a combination of effective farmer education, Government policies, corporate and retail support, and consumer awareness.
