Book a seat on the Regenerative Rangelands Bus Tour

News article |

If you work in SA’s pastoral region and have an interest in regenerative grazing and improved land management practices, we have an exciting opportunity for you.

As part of our From the Ground Up Project, an itinerary is being developed for a bus tour that will head over the NSW border for a regenerative journey of learning.

Guided by Rangelands Native Plant expert Anne Brown and Pasture Management specialist Millie Nicholls, the tour is for participants interested in learning about rangeland management techniques. Passengers will visit trial sites and paddock scale applications of rangelands regenerative techniques in March 2024.

As part of the trip, you will travel across a diverse range of rangeland landscapes of western NSW visiting pastoral properties undertaking regenerative projects to improve land condition and grazing productivity.

On-board will be pastoralists and grazing and soil management specialists of western NSW, who will direct us to sites established under the Rangelands Living Skin program.

You will learn about traditional and new innovative methods to manage soil health from a range of speakers and specialists; meet with pastoralists and managers with experience in rangeland and pastoral management; share your own experiences and develop networks with peers and projects.

While the trip is largely subsidised, successful applicants will be asked to cover some expenses.

Next-generation pastoral employees and rangelands managers are strongly encouraged to apply. Applications will open in early December, and successful applicants will need to demonstrate a commitment to learning and applying new practices in their field of work.

Keep an eye on the SAAL Facebook page and your email inbox for more information.

If you have any questions relating to this trip, please contact Andrea Tschirner on 0438 720 469 or via email at andrea.tschirner@sa.gov.au

This project is supported by the SA Arid Lands Landscape Board, through funding from the Australian Government’s Future Drought Fund.
