The Channon Resilience Action Group has organised the event to help the community learn strategies to build resilience into their landscapes, to help them maintain and grow productivity in primary production, and have more flourishing and biodiverse gardens.

Topics to be covered include Indigenous knowledge and understanding the importance of Indigenous land-care practices in land management, regeneration, native plants and how they improve landscape resilience, Natural Sequence Farming and its role in landscape hydration and erosion mitigation.
