Description

How a former industrial farmer tired of killing his soil, and switched to regen agriculture. He relates through evocative stories how innovative like-minded farmers have found their own paths to regen techniques (Savory, Biodynamic, holistic, organic, ecological, etc) to enhance their land and he weaves his own experiences and growth through these stories. He farms on the Monaro and lectures part-time at ANU. My prediction is that this book will have a major effect – not by preaching, but by showing – on how Australia is farmed. The timing is impeccable: today, for example we have red topsoil from Western NSW coating our land on its way to New Zealand and possibly Chile. We have six signed copies (and plenty of unsigned).
