Land Restoration Fund information workshops
The Department of Environment and Science will be hosting a series of workshops being held in February, to help landholders and land managers apply for the Queensland Government’s Land Restoration Fund.
At the workshops, specialists from government, industry and the carbon farming sector will explain the application process and provide information on the first investment round so attendees can start putting together applications for carbon farming projects in Queensland.
Guest speakers and presenters will be available to speak one-on-one to attendees after each workshop.
Workshop attendees will:
- find out more about carbon farming and how it will provide new, diversified income streams while restoring soils and vegetation
- find out how they can develop a carbon farming project that will work alongside their existing operations
- meet industry experts who can provide information specific to their properties, businesses and applications
- learn about the Land Restoration Fund, including investment round details, the application process, the governments support package and how you can seek further help.
These workshops are also a great opportunity to make connections with other interested landowners to collaborate on potential partnerships or projects. Registrations are now open for the following workshops:
- Warwick: 3 February 2020
- Roma: 5 February 2020
- Gympie: 7 February 2020
