Two years after the Cudlee Creek fire, some impacted landholders may well feel there is still a lot of recovery work to do. If this is you, you may be interested in the ‘Bushfire Resilience – Agriculture and Land Management’ course.

This free, four-part course provides resources and support for bushfire recovery planning, preparedness, land management and community connectedness, alongside others in your local area.

Participants from the 2021 courses said: “It was great to meet our neighbours (that we didn’t even know) down the road, and share advice and stories. This instilled hope that whilst there is a still a long way to go, we are certainly on track and don’t have to do it alone.”

Over the course you will be able to:
– identify issues and risks to develop your bushfire recovery action plan.
– participate in presentations and workshops from Adelaide Hills local CFS, Legal Aid, and future climate change consultants .
– join field workshops on chosen topics, including recovery for soils and pasture, effective water course rehabilitation and management of pest plants and animals.

The next round of Bushfire Resilience Agriculture and Land Management courses will begin next month (March 2022) and will be delivered by December 2022.

Registration is now open
