Our Land: Your Story

With the assistance of a Department of Natural Resources & Water (NRW) – Community Awareness Grant, Landcare Queensland in conjunction with Feral Arts have been able to provide training in the use of PlaceStories software to community Landcare volunteers.

The NRW funded project, Our Land: Your Story, brought together volunteers and coordinators representing Landcare and catchment management groups to learn how to produce digital stories using PlaceStories software, this will allow groups to showcase their work and share their knowledge in natural resource management in Queensland.

Our Land: Your Story aims to increase the uptake of sustainable natural resources management and agricultural practices by documenting and promoting successful land management actions in a contemporary and easily accessible format.

It is hoped that workshop participants will engage with their group and community to create and publish stories on a variety of projects relating to natural resource management in their local area.

Of the stories produced by participants in the Our Land: Your Story project, the groups will be asked to submit their best story for judging as part of a competition to be held in conjunction with Natural Resources Week, 26 – 30 May 2008. The winning story producer will be awarded with a small cash prize to contribute towards their group’s nominated project, this prize will be presented during Natural Resources week.
