We cater to all the people who have to work with soil to make a living.
Have you ever heard of Regenerative Agriculture?
Put simply, it’s an amalgamation of sustainable farming techniques that go beyond the norm to build soils and soil quality with minimal inputs and maximum outputs of high quality, pest, disease and drought resistant produce. If you get your soils right, all else follows.
Maybe you have heard of Regenerative Agriculture, but you’ve heard that it takes decades to rebuild your soils and you have to sacrifice yields and profits over many years?
The good news is that it doesn’t have to take decades and you don’t have to suffer with reduced yields and poor to no profitability for years.
We can show you how to start rebuilding your soils immediately and keep or even increase your yields whilst doing so.
I am absolutely passionate about growing healthy nutrient dense food. For as long as I can remember I have wanted to work with soil and grow things, spending many hours digging over the soil and planting veggies with my Dad in his massive backyard garden – and picking out the worms for my next biggest passion, fishing😊.
I started working with worms to recycle organic waste back in 1991 and worked with many organisations to recycle their organic waste including Heinz Foods, Australian Paper Mills, Hobart City Council, Melbourne City Council, Queen Victoria Markets, Herds Abattoirs and many others. Then in the mid 2000’s I read a book called “We Want Real Food by Graham Harvey” and my Regenerative Agriculture journey began in earnest. Although the term Regenerative Agriculture had not been coined back then. Since then I have studied as much as I could about the numerous Regenerative Agricultural techniques that came under many names.
I have worked with numerous farmers in our district with problems such as pasture dieback on cattle properties, to macadamia orchardists right through to large scale horticulturists. I specialise in understanding what happens below the ground with fungi, bacteria, archaea, protozoa, nematodes and of course earthworms and how they all interact to create what Dr Elaine Ingham calls “The Soil Food Web” or the natural soil fertility cycle. I work with various specialists including Agreco’s – Chris Themsen, Nutritech Solutions – Graeme Saite, Microbiologist – Sonia Ghiggioli and EAL Laboratories – Graham Lancaster. We use rapid DNA analysis as well as the more traditional soil tests to really understand what’s happening with soils and how best to nudge them back into becoming self regenerative fertile soils.
I have a strong passion for health and wellness and have spent the last decade studying and exploring biology, health, nutrition, and evolution in both human and environmental contexts. While I am a qualified health practitioner, I am now more focused on the health of our farmlands and soils, which directly impact upon humans and the environment.
As humans we are living longer than ever before thanks to modern technology; however, we are also plagued by the highest rates of morbidity in history. The current system is broken because we have lost touch with our evolutionary foundations.
I strongly believe the same issue is happening with our farming and land management practices. The current ‘convention’, which is staunchly focused on NPK and synthetic inputs, did not exist 100 years ago. Yet plants, animals, and the microbiology in soil have thrived for millennia so what gives?
There is another disconnect happening now with our soils that is more critical to the health and wellbeing of our planet than most people realise. If we can take a step back and get the foundations right with our farming and land management practices, then I honestly believe the health of every living organism on the planet will be healthier and have a brighter future.
