Community Engagement and Capacity Building

Supporting rural landholders in bush regeneration and reforestation

the Community Engagement and Capacity Building project focused on supporting rural landholders in bush regeneration and reforestation efforts. This project aims to connect like-minded landholders, foster knowledge sharing, and promote environmental stewardship among community members. Through collaborative efforts and cultural collaboration, we aspire to enhance understanding and connection between Traditional Owners and property owners while promoting sustainable land management practices.

Red Soils Mentoring Group

Join the Red Soils Mentoring Group, a vibrant community-driven network of individuals dedicated to the stewardship and conservation of land in the Ballina Hinterland. Our group organizes regular gatherings to share knowledge and practice effective bush regeneration techniques. By emphasizing the power of collaboration, we strive to inspire others to actively care for the environment on their own properties.

Field Days

Bush Regeneration Activities: Participate in our engaging field days and bush regeneration activities, designed to provide hands-on experience and practical knowledge. These events offer a unique opportunity for individuals interested in getting involved to learn and contribute to the restoration of our natural ecosystems. Stay updated on upcoming events by visiting our news page regularly.

Cultural Collaboration

We recognize the significance of fostering understanding and connection between Traditional Owners and property owners. Through our project, we aim to bridge the gap and cultivate mutual respect by promoting dialogue and exchanging knowledge about traditional land management practices. By working together, we can ensure that our efforts align with the values and wisdom of the land’s original custodians.
