At our recent conference, ‘Farming and Climate Change: Towards Net Zero Carbon Emissions’, regenerative farmer and author of the book ‘Call of the Reed Warbler’ (2017), Charles Massy provided an eve of conference address, looking at, amongst other things, the critical role that ruminants play in landscape preservation and restoration. Charles Massy is a seminal voice in regenerative agriculture, which foregrounds ‘ecological literacy’ as a key tool. It looks to nature as a guide, seeking always to support and regenerate ecosystems. Massy is uncompromising in his conviction that healthy food comes from healthy landscapes and that modern industrial agriculture has damaged this. Regenerative practices can repair this.

    I am finding it difficult in Australia to find Australian resources on regenerative agriculture and have a few questions relating to my farm where I would like to start this practice. I have just had the Haney soil test done on my trufferie and avocado orchard but have nothing to help me interpret my results, nothing to compare to ( and no one in my region can help me). i also would like to know how regen ag will affect my ph when I need ph 5.5 in one paddock and high 7 in another. Would you have advice on who I could talk to at all; I would really appreciate it.

    Why don't Australians plant trees across their desert dust lands and re-green it all, like China is doing in the Gobi desert.

    This is great! We need to keep spreading this system. All the way down to the smallest homestead practices.
