Landscape Rehydration – Introductory and Advanced Workshops

Retaining water in landscapes in Boyup Brook!

Join the Mulloon Institute’s Lance Mudgway to learn how Landscape Rehydration help retain water on farms, repair salt scalds and reduce waterlogging. Hosted by Warren and Lori Pensini on their holistic planned cattle grazing operation ‘Paraway’, hear about their regenerative agriculture journey, how rehydration practices were integrated into their farm planning and take a paddock walk to on-ground works that were completed earlier this year.

Lance Mudgway is a hydrologist based in Wagin, Western Australia with over 20 years’ experience managing surface and groundwater in WA’s agricultural landscapes. He has 16 years’ experience as a hydrologist working in landscape repair in response to salinity and land degradation issues in the WA Wheatbelt, bringing extensive experience and knowledge of natural capital, landscape properties and processes.

Introductory and Advanced Workshops
There are two workshop event options:

1. Introduction to Landscape Rehydration. Tuesday 21st March | 1 pm – 4:30 pm | Cost: $40
The half-day introductory workshop gives a foundational understanding of a farm’s water cycle using ‘Paraway’ property as a case study using the Mulloon Institute’s tailored approaches to rehydrating landscapes. This presentation is followed by a visit to an on-ground works site on the property and discussions on approaches to applying these practices to other landscapes.

2. Advanced Landscape Rehydration. Wednesday 22nd – Thursday 23rd March | Cost: $300
Open to all that have attended any of the Mulloon Institute’s Introduction workshops. This 1 ½ day workshop builds on the fundamentals of water and how land use influences the health of a property using observations of landscape function. We offer practical skills to restore and optimise a farm’s water cycle using a range of scientifically grounded tactics and strategies the Mulloon Institute use. Through a series of practical hands-on activities, you will learn skills of assessment, design, and planning for you to develop a landscape rehydration project on your property.

The advanced workshop would usually be priced at $900 per person, however, this event is part of the WA Community Stewardship Project which is supported by funding from the Western Australian Government’s State NRM Program, so a substantial subsidy is available.
