Acknowledgement of Country

We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders as the Traditional Owners and Custodians of Country and recognise their continuing connection to and stewardship of land, water, and sea. We honour their culture, customs, and community. We pay our respects to their Ancestors, Elders, and future leaders.

Healing Country

The ARC Training Centre for Healing Country (‘Healing Country’) builds a robust science-business interface that links Indigenous Australians to vibrant and resilient businesses

in revegetation of damaged lands that reconnects communities to healthy landscapes to create ongoing financial independence through the carbon economy, honey production, seed supply, cultural species development and restoration services. A layered training framework will ensure future Indigenous practitioners and emerging leaders can continue to deliver cost-effective restoration business solutions at the scale and diversity required to service future demand.
