Northern Territory Soil Consortium
Territory Natural Resource Management has been successful in obtaining a Smart Farms Small Grant through the Australian Governments National Landcare Program. The grant will be used to initiate an Northern Territory Soil Consortium to build land manager capacity and knowledge in soil health and conservation. The Consortium will bring land manager capacity and knowledge in soil health and conservation. The Consortium will bring land managers from various industries and soil experts together through workshops, symposiums, and networking, to ensure knowledge passes in an effective manner.
The Northern Territory Soil Consortium encourages everyone who has an interest in the land and their soil to be involved. From backyard gardeners, to horticulturists, to pastoralists, the Consortium will benefit everyone. The advantages of peer-to-peer, farm-to-farm learning is the basis of the Consortium. The opportunities that come from networking, training, and learning will allow the Northern Territory to become resilient against challenges facing those who work on the land.
