What happens under the tractor?

The first public evening session in Connecting Country’s 2012 Education Program was attended by 75 people at Campbell’s Creek last week.

The talk was given by Dr Denis Saunders, who posed a set of question about the long term viability of agriculture in Australia. He discussed the curious fact that we know little or nothing about the effect of agricultural practice on soil micro organisms, and argued that ignorance on such matters might lead to long term bad practice. His theme, on the interdependence of people and environment, was stated as an acknowledgement of Aboriginal land management practices in the words: ‘we are country, country is us.’ A fuller report on the evening, together with info on the remaining sessions in the program, can be found here.
