THE SOIL STORY The Road to Regenerative Agriculture Teaching Curriculum Rebuilding Healthy Soils for Carbon Cycle Balance

  • Kate Spry, a science teacher from Tamworth has developed the first curriculum in Australia that explores regenerative agricultural principles and practices
  • Regenerative agriculture describes land and livestock grazing management techniques that seek to sequester carbon and restore healthy eco-system processes
  • The new curriculum is project focussed and designed for students from Years 3 to 10; It has been picked up by more than 50 schools so far, across multiple states
This unit has been Australianised to adhere to the Curriculum's outcome and objectives for Science, Geography, History, Agricultural Technology and Technology Mandatory Key Learning Areas.
The Unit can be taught as it stands, or has the capacity to employ supplementary pedagogical styles such as, ‘project-based learning’ as it allows real world connections to be made and contexts explored right throughout the unit.
An interactive Facebook Page with additional resources has been developed to obtain further information so that this Unit may be adapted to all stages (1-6).

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
