TNRM Natural Process Erosion Control Course

Territory Natural Resource Management (TNRM) has partnered with RegenAG's erosion mitigation expert Craig Sponholtz of Watershed Artisans to deliver a three-day intensive natural process erosion control course.

This course teaches farmers and land managers how to set restoration priorities that align with your management objectives. It will empower participants to make a positive difference in your own watersheds by emphasising an understanding of root causes and healing processes, rather than simply addressing the symptoms of degradation.

What's covered

  • introduction to the Landscape Assessment Framework
  • recognising the symptoms and causes of degraded land
  • identifying regenerative natural processes
  • understanding how humans affect and are affected by the landscape
  • designing resilient solutions for landscape problems
  • understanding management options for degraded land
  • how to heal degraded land by harvesting runoff
  • deciding what is doable and what should be done first
  • planning and prepared to complete a successful project
  • maintaining a project to ensure its long-term success.

What you get

  • a three day intensive course in a small class setting with an internationally recognised erosion specialist
  • both theory and practical experience in arid land erosion situations
  • savings of over $600 per person through funding from the Australian Government's Smart Farm Small Grants
  • morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea each day (plus dinner and breakfast at Hale River Homestead)
  • free camping a Hale River Homestead (or the option to pay for a bed).

When: 9 - 11 April 2019, 8:30am - 5:00pm daily

Where: Corkwood Room, Desert Knowledge, South Stuart Highway, Alice Springs and Hale River Homestead, Arltunga Road, Alice Springs
