25 August 2023: Missed the show? Listen back here.
Adrian Drew will be our guest again with David Clarey and Vanessa Malandrin. Adrian and his wife Shelby are passionate custodians of 100 acres of land near Buxton. It has a vertical range of 240 metres and much is ex pine planation that has been affected by forest fires.
We will chat about their mission to tranform the land into a "living landscape" using The Australian Landscape Science (TALS) Approach.
TALS Approach means restoring and managing landscapes based on landscapes and ecosystems as a whole (as opposed to individual paddocks), resulting in maximum productivity, fertility and efficiency in an automatic aggrading landscape that can moderate climate.
TALS land management and restoration practices are based on those developed by Peter Andrews OAM (Natural Sequence Farming - NSF) and Michal Kravcik as well as Terraquaculture (water farming) practices described by Prof Haikai Tane.
Training in NSF is provided by Tarwyn Park Training. Vanessa is planning to attend an NSF course and will have lots of questions for Adrian!
