Learn how to let Nature give you a helping hand

We understand that it's getting harder to grow food

We're battling drought, extreme temperatures, heavy rain, flash flooding, and unusual pest and disease outbreaks. It's also becoming impossible to ignore the financial costs, environmental and food safety issues of our reliance on fertilisers, pest controls and other inputs.

Fortunately, there is a solution - getting the ecosystems in our farms and gardens functioning again.

Growing food in functioning ecosystems, we benefit from Nature's free ecological services, reducing our input costs, environmental footprint, and the impacts of extreme weather events.

Our research has identified the functions we critically need to regenerate, the effective way to do it - mimicking how these ecological functions get naturally repaired. It doesn’t matter where you grow, what you grow, or your property size. We'll show you how to apply this eco-logical approach. You'll develop practical solutions that work well for your circumstances and gain the skills to respond constructively to emerging issues and threats.

Join the groundswell of growers, regenerating their farms and gardens by enabling Nature to give them a helping hand.

Take a look at the native vegetation in your region. It doesn’t need anyone to spread mulch, compost and other bio-fertilisers, control pests, weed or mow...

The Benefits of Learning from Nature

Leave your tractor and spade in the shed. Give the job of making good soil structure to the experts – your soil organisms.

Save money on pest controls with technologically advanced, highly motivated insect and bird pest controllers.

Give your soil ecosystem the job of managing your fertiliser regime.

Improve yields growing extra solar panels.

Learning from Nature makes Eco-logical Sense.

Learning from Nature, we combine expertise developed over 400 million years with our knowledge and skills to create ecosystems that are self-maintaining and highly productive - using the energy and resources naturally available. Ecosystems that quickly bounce back from the impacts of extreme weather.

Everything we want for our farms and gardens.

Learning from Nature makes Economic Sense.

Learning from Nature, we reduce fertiliser, pest control and other input costs. We improve our yields experiencing higher nutrient availability in our soils and fewer impacts from pests and diseases.

We can also take advantage of the opportunities this eco-logical approach provides to grow additional crops with the land we have available.

Makes Sense for Organisations Supporting Food Growers.

Understanding and applying ecological principles, our food growers become the innovators and agents of change. They gain the know-how to trial techniques, learn and share their experiences, and adaptive capacity to respond constructively to newly emerging issues and threats.

They supply vital ecosystem services – biodiversity, carbon sequestration, flood mitigation, reduced fertiliser, pesticide and sediment runoff as natural by-products from repairing the ecological infrastructure on their land.

What does learning from Nature mean for you?

You confidently and competently bring back Nature's FREE ecological services to your garden and farm using techniques that work for your climate and other growing conditions.

You get the job done relying mainly on the resources you have naturally available - your plants, animals, microbes, etc., rather than imported ingredients with often dubious environmental credentials.
