NSW EVENT: ‘Plan a Regenesis Forest’ workshop

Are you a Council, CMA, Landcare group, other NGO or private landowner who would like to plant locally native, bio-diverse forests that can be utilised for carbon trading? Blacktown City Council and Liverpool Plains Shire Council partnered with their communities to do this, and wish to tell you how you can too through one of their Plan a Regenesis Forest workshops.

Regenesis is a model for planning and planting locally native reforestation projects that create additional revenue for landholders to establish and maintain native vegetation. The Regenesis model provides a do it yourself kit to enable landowners, councils and other land managers to participate in carbon emissions trading schemes.

Workshops will be run in the following NSW locations: Blacktown Friday 4 May, Orange Tuesday 15 May, Quirindi Thursday 17 May, Queanbeyan Tuesday 22 May, Bellingen Wednesday 13 June, Lismore Friday 15 June, Armidale Monday 18 June.
