In this episode we explore the emerging practice of regenerative agriculture, perhaps one of the best ways to drawdown carbon out of our atmosphere and help reduce the impacts of climate change.
Under the leadership of Deane Belfield, the Mount Alexander Regenerative Agriculture Group has been running a program for local farmers to learn about the techniques involved in regenerative agriculture and help them implement them and test them.
Saltgrass is produced in Castlemaine on the land of the Dja Dja Wurrung people. We pay respects to elders past, present and emerging.
