Development workshops: Ten-year Native Seed and Landscape Restoration Strategy

We want to give you the opportunity to contribute to Australia’s ten-year native seed and landscape restoration strategy.

The Project Phoenix team are creating a ten-year native seed and landscape restoration strategy. Through the development of this strategy, we’re setting out to fulfil the vision of a more robust, sustainable and resilient native seed sector.

Project Phoenix arose from the recent bushfires and the recognition that we can and need to do better with our native seeds.

It involves experts and representatives from across the native seed sector, in 30 projects that are delivering against eight strategic priorities. Project Phoenix has created the opportunity to develop a strategic roadmap that will build the capacity of the sector and its ability to respond to current and future challenges.

To achieve this, we’ve identified five pillars that can make this happen:

  • Information provision
  • Quality and standards
  • Smarter regulation
  • Capacity Building
  • Research and development.

Over the course of 14 virtual workshops, we want to hear your thoughts on where you want the sector to be in ten years’ time and how we can get there.

The virtual workshops will be held throughout April and May, and will be open to everyone. Each workshop will run for up to 2 hours and will focus on the five pillars, each state and territory, and the national perspective.
