Are you a land manager who is making a positive change on your property?

You are invited to take part in the Resilient Landscapes Project to showcase what you have achieved so others can learn from your experience.

We're seeking expressions of interest from landholders to participate in field studies of land management practices that restore landscape function and deliver outcomes that include:

  • sustainable production
  • an improved natural resource base
  • healthy nutrient cycling
  • increased biodiversity and enhanced resilience.

For more information contact Gemma Turnbull gemma.turnbull@lls.nsw.gov.au or Jennifer Azevedo jennifer.azevedo@lls.nsw.gov.au or phone 02 6872 2144.

We are looking for landholders willing to participate in field studies who have adopted and can demonstrate a positive triple bottom line outcome from innovative landscape management practices.

About the project

The Resilient Landscapes Project is a cooperative venture in knowledge and skill transfer between experienced land managers with proven positive outcomes from resilient landscape management practices and client landholders who seek to preserve and improve the natural capital of their agricultural and grazing properties.

The Project manages three functions that align with the three strategic objectives of the Soils for Life Business
Plan:

  • field studies and reports of selected agricultural land holdings where the landholder has adopted and can demonstrate a positive triple bottom line outcome from innovative landscape management practices
  • demonstration and information activities that publicise the innovative landscape management practices and their outcomes
  • landholder-to-landholder mentoring programs in a variety of representative geo-climatic regions and different enterprises.
