The Goulburn Broken CMA received funding from the Australian Government to continue the SoilCare project, which started in 2012.

SoilCare worked with farmers, community groups and industry to promote awareness, understanding and adoption of farming practices that improve soil condition. Through SoilCare, farming practices were trialed and demonstrated on-farm to test under local conditions and to test their ‘fit’ for individual businesses.

The project provided a great opportunity for groups of farmers to come together in support networks to promote ideas for better management of soil health and put into practice farmer-led demonstrations.

At the same time, together with DEDJTR, we developed resources to support the sharing of information for and with farmers.

With the ever growing uncertainty of seasonal outlooks and the demands placed on the services that soils provide, this project offered a great opportunity to further promote community driven soil health programs.

Case studies and other resources from this project can be accessed here.

The Goulburn Broken CMA acknowledges and respects First Nations people and the deep connection they have with their land and waters.

We acknowledge the Yorta Yorta and Taungurung people and their ancestors/forbears as Traditional Owners of the land and waters in the Goulburn Broken Catchment (and beyond). We value our ongoing partnerships with Yorta Yorta Nation Aboriginal Corporation and Taungurung Land and Waters Council for the health of Country and its people.

We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging and acknowledge and recognise the primacy of Traditional Owners obligations, rights and responsibilities to use and care for their traditional lands and waters.
