Eco-logical Farming Handbook

Reduce Costs - Boost Production

Get support with growing food by repairing the ecosystems underpinning your production systems.

Using this Handbook you'll learn to solve the root causes of the soil, pest, and disease issues holding you back. You'll develop production systems better able to bounce back from the impacts of extreme weather, and reduce the costs of growing food for you and our environment!

Farmers Build Healthy Soil

Getting Your Soil Ecosystem Functioning Again

With the costs of fertilisers escalating people are switching to using alternatives like legumes, compost, and biofertilisers. But there is another option that we tend to overlook - getting the ecosystems in our soil to supply nutrients to our crops.

We’ll show you how to use this eco-logical approach. It’s not complicated! Your plants will get five-star catering directly from your soil ecosystem rather than via the intermittent inputs you supply!

How To Drought-Proof Your Farm

Cost-Effective Ecological Solutions

Water is essential for our farms to thrive and produce healthy food. Standard solutions help, like putting in more stock watering points,, growing drought-tolerant crops, using water-smart irrigation and engineering solutions. But there is an eco-logical solution we tend to overlook - getting more water into and retained in our soil.

So if you are asking yourself, “what can I do to affordably reduce the impacts of drought?" get this book!


The Key To Growing Food That Looks After Itself

Wouldn’t it be great to grow plants that thrive in your growing conditions, plants that you harvest, rather than the insects?

Using the steps in this resource, you’ll quickly assess and map your garden's growing conditions.

You can then select plants that will grow well in these conditions and design features to improve your production systems, like windbreaks, water harvesting structures and open canopied legume trees to reduce sunburnt fruit.

Add your GrowMap as a layer to your existing farm plan. No special skills or expensive surveying equipment are required.
