THE INCREDIBLE BLUEPRINT
OF THE ANCIENT AUSTRALIAN LANDSCAPE
Can you imagine… going directly from drought to productivity?
Australia is experiencing the worst drought for more than 100 years.
But despite this, there is still hope and a great opportunity...
The UN is preparing to declare 2021-2030 The Decade of Ecosystem Restoration.
And Australia can take a leading role.
'WHOLE OF LANDSCAPE'
RESTORATION & MANAGEMENT APPROACH
SUPPORTED BY SCIENCE
This is a short (5 min) extract of the popular ABC Australian Story episode "Of Droughts And Flooding Rains" - the story of Peter Andrews OAM and the rediscovery of The Australian Landscape Science (TALS) and its implementation as Natural Sequence Farming (NSF). Watch the full episode here.
WHAT IS IT ALL ABOUT?
Peter Andrews OAM explains the Restorative Agriculture at "Peter's Pond", Mulloon Creek, 17 Jan 2011. Peter first developed Natural Sequence Farming at Tarwyn Park in Bylong Valley near Mudgee. Peter's methods have been described by the UN as 1 of only 5 methods of sustainable agriculture in the world. (Filming by Paul Cockram, Artplan Videographics)

AUSTRALIA’S LANDSCAPE MANAGERS CAN LEAD THE WORLD IN CLIMATE RECOVERY
“Australia has the incredible blueprint to lead the world in climate change recovery.
All the information we need is here, from the tropics to temperate zones.
The basic patterns and principles of productivity are embedded in the ancient Australian landscape.
We can use these elementary designs to rebuild healthy landscapes and turn cities into rainforests.
Examples exist right across the country, using sunlight, gravity and water to achieve sustainable growth
- by capturing, filtering and recycling nutrients.
The problems are complex, but the solutions are simple, and it all starts by growing a plant.
We must now recognise the greatest opportunity
that will benefit ourselves and the world.”
