Along with 170 others, I had the privilege of attending a great workshop with Joel Salatin of Polyface Farms at Beerwah on the Sunny Coast recently. It was hosted by RegenAG and MC'd by the one and only Costa Georgiadis, of Costa's Odyssey on SBS.
Joel focuses on chemical free natural farming methods and his Polyface Farms mantra is "We're healing the planet one bite at a time." He is incredibly knowledgeable about animal management systems and integrating different animals with each other and vegetation for maximum benefit without damaging the planet. Whilst it was a day packed with information I thought I'd briefly share some of the key points applicable to growing in our own backyards.
You can find a wealth of additional resources at RegenAG. Ecofilms also videoed the day - you can get a flavour for what was on the menu here. They make some great short videos that you can view online too.
