Animal agriculture is depleting and degrading Australia's land. Furthermore, many Australian farmers understand that killing non-human animals for food is unethical and unnecessary. This ethical conflict is reflected on the supermarket shelves. CSIRO and the Australian Government are innovating to support a new wave of crop farming for humans: hemp, quinoia, millet and spelt.
Our planet and all the species within it (including ours) is subject to increasing forces of globalisation and industrialisation causing species extinction and climate change. A straightforward and effective way to assuage the simplification of ecosystems and landscapes, are things we can do in our own backyard. My aim is to bring the best of Country (the indigenous concept) into my contemporary existence. I am regenerating what was 100 square metres of weeds on the city fringers, into a native wildlife corridor in the sandbelt region.
