Let's share your story
Join our Case Study Program and partner with us to build evidence of how you are achieving resilient, productive outcomes through regenerative landscape management practices. We'd like to share your story and inspire others.
We are always looking for partners to sharing journeys of healing soils and landscapes. Even though we can only select a certain amount of participants at a time, everyone who submits an expression of interest will have the opportunity to be a part of a peer-to-peer learning group with other farmers, be a part of future case studies or join in events.

What is a Case Study?
For more than a decade, Soils for Life has been producing case studies of farmers’ inspiring stories of transition to regenerating their soils and landscapes. It is the largest body of regenerative farming case studies in Australia.
Each Soils for Life case study is an interwoven story supported by evidence of how land management innovators are achieving resilient, productive outcomes through regenerative landscape management practices. Our case studies are holistic, documenting ecological, social and economic factors and change.
The case study program promotes understanding on the part of land managers, policy makers, researchers and consumers, of the underlying issues and benefits of landscape regeneration. We have a strong focus on peer-to-peer support in order to enable improvements in landscape and water management practices across Australia. Our case studies also showcase groups of farmers who are working and learning together.
The case studies have been used by farmers, researchers and policy makers around the country to inspire and inform new ideas and approaches in agriculture.
