Regenerative Ecological Fitness Regenerative Ecological Fitness embodies an ongoing journey, embracing nature, adaptability, and Indigenous wisdom to nurture landscapes. It leverages weeds as resources, utilizing their potential to establish cover, control water velocity, and foster ecological complexity for large-scale restoration. This approach, rooted in Indigenous knowledge, fosters resilience, acknowledging the value of the journey itself rather than a fixed destination.  Join our webinar exploring Regenerative Ecological Fitness in erosion control. Discover how Indigenous wisdom and weed utilization can establish vital cover, mitigate water velocity, and foster ecosystem complexity for large-scale restoration. Learn how these transferable techniques can benefit councils and landowners across Australia, offering scalable practices rooted in Indigenous knowledge and adaptable to diverse landscapes. The webinar showcases practical applications and case studies, emphasizing the potential of these approaches to drive impactful change, fostering resilience, managing erosion, and promoting ecological restoration across broad territories.
