Fertilisers, minerals, improved seed, and time-controlled grazing improve pasture productivity. But we often overlook the benefits of creating silvopasture to tackle the decline in pasture productivity simply due to plants
Water is essential for our gardens to thrive and provide healthy food for our families. Standard solutions - spreading mulch, growing drought-tolerant plants, using irrigation and greywater, will help drought-proof
We can use Cloud-Seeding, Rain-Rockets, Atmosphere Zappers and other weather-modification technologies, but wouldn't we be better off using safe, eco-logical technologies to increase rainfall instead? Scientists have evidence supporting the widespread
We’re getting harder hit by drought. Standard solutions no longer seem enough. Fortunately, there are farmers leading the way and getting heartening results using eco-logical approaches to drought-proofing. Here’s one of
Yes, it's true... scientists have evidence supporting the widespread perception that trees make rain, that by growing more vegetation, we get more rain. On average, 40% or more of the precipitation
We're getting harder hit by drought. Standard solutions no longer seem enough. Earthworks like swales, contour banks, Natural Sequence Farming, and Keyline Design can help you drought-proof your farm. But
We are experiencing the worst droughts in our living memory. Usually, our response is to dig more dams, bores and water points, switch to rotational grazing practices and planned de-stocking.
