A quick plug for a lecture series called Talking Regenerative Agriculture that we’re running on 15-16 July at the Mudgee Small Farm Field Days.
Two days of talks by farmers and folks doing amazing stuff in the realms of permaculture and regenerative agriculture!
We’ve somehow convinced a very impressive lineup of doers and thinkers to come along and share their knowledge on things like pasture cropping, humanure, natural beekeeping, biofertilizer, how grazing animals can save the world, aquaponics, how soil health defines people health and who knows what else…
Australian Rural Education Center, Mudgee NSW: 15-16 July 2011
- Costa Gerogiadis on the power of school gardens
- Bruce Ward on Holistic Management
- Nick Ritar on humanure, regenerative agriculture and biofertilizers
- Dr Carole Hungerford on soil health = human health
- Bruce Maynard on pasture cropping
- Tim Malfroy on natural beekeeping
- Matt Herbert on Aquaponics.
We’re so very excited to be running this! It’s a great opportunity for anyone nearby to get the low down on these subjects that have so much potential to heal our landscapes, food systems and communities. We’ll be there all day Fri 15th and Sat 16th July in the pavilion, so make sure you come and say hello!
We first got involved in the Mudgee Small Farm Field Days last year. Quite an education! We did up a little stall and spent two days talking about permaculture and regenerative agriculture to soooo many people from all over.
This year, however, we’re turning up the heat on this sort of knowledge, with the help of AREC. Because we really do think that everyone should be talking regenerative agriculture! Or at least have the chance to figure out how it can fit into their lives, farms and community.
