The free workshop was hosted by the Peel-Harvey Catchment Council in partnership with the Making More From Sheep program from Australian Wool Innovation and Meat & Livestock Australia.

The aim was to provide knowledge, tools and techniques for landscape scale property planning.

The 16 landholders were helped to create individual regeneration plans of their land and farming enterprise. Presenters included Jeff Pow, who rebuilt his South West WA farming enterprise after it was destroyed by a 2013 fire, and Darren Doherty who has world-wide experience in the profitable and regenerative retrofit of broad acre landscapes.
