The Landcare Farming Program (LFP) is currently seeking Expressions of Interest (EoI’s) from individuals, groups and organisations who have terrific and innovative stories to tell about managing for healthy landscapes in the agricultural sector.

"We know great work is generating ...some compelling results out there and we want to support you share this work with a wider audience. We will work with you to determine the best way to generate these stories and support you in the process.

Pulling together great stories takes time and effort, SO we want to support you with funding and help you tell others about the good work that is underway in your area that is aligned with the Landcare Farming Themes of:
• Vegetation, Soils & Waterways
• Managing Pasture
• Biodiversity
• Building Drought Resilience
• Carbon flows
• Me and My People"

Please see below link to Landcare Farming Program EoI: https://landcareaustralia.smartygrants.com.au/LandcareFarmingStoriesEOI

This is an opportunity to spread the word about the work you are doing that may be of interest to you. Projects of up to $25K are being sought (this is NOT limited to formal Landcare groups but rather Landcarers).

Applications for this this Landcare Farming Program Expression of Interest will close on Monday 24th of October."

What each of these learning groups have in common is that they: share a passion for something that they do, and they learn how to do it better as they interact.

With the 8 families group, knowledge is shared around topics such as soil health, time-controlled grazing, biological soil amendments, or soil rehydration practices. They have noticed that having a support network has strengthened and improved many aspects of farming life.

Peer-to-Peer-Learning: Farmer-led learning groups. Farmer learning groups offer opportunities to develop processes for peer-to-peer learning, decision making and experience sharing. #regenerativeagriculture
