What is Healthy Country?

'Healthy Country' is a program that focuses on ways to reduce sediments and nutrients entering our waterways from our catchments.

The program currently focuses in the Upper Warrill Creek and Pumicestone Passage catchments.

We work with landholders to promote healthy soils, agricultural landscapes, and ecosystems across South East Queensland (SEQ).

Despite its relatively small area, SEQ represents 13 per cent of Queensland’s agricultural production in terms of dollar value. 

As the SEQ population swells and the area needed to accommodate this growth encroaches further on rural land, the need for protection, restoration and sustainable management of rural land in SEQ becomes more acute.

We deliver programs to support the uptake of sustainable agriculture across our region by partnering closely with industry groups like Agforce and Growcom as well as federal, state and local governments.

By supporting local landholders to implement sustainable farm practices, we’re helping to improve water quality, build healthy soils, conserve natural ecosystems and protect our productive agricultural lands for future generations.
