FDI invites you to follow the link below to view a series of eight videos focusing on the key principles of regenerative agriculture. The videos are hosted and narrated by senior soil scientist Declan McDonald of SESL Australia.
Soil scientist Declan McDonald has hosted a series of eight short videos articulating the key principles of Regenerative Agriculture. Topics covered include introducing regenerative agriculture, minimising soil disturbance, maximising crop diversity, keeping soil covered, maintaining living roots systems year-round, integrating livestock and trees and how farmers can transition to regenerative agriculture.
As Charles Massy, author of Call of the Reed Warbler, states ‘regenerative agriculture is an ecological approach to farming that allows landscapes to renew themselves’. It promotes ethical land stewardship that revitalises the natural water cycle, improves the carbon cycle and promotes biodiversity in soil.
This video project is supported by Bass Coast Landcare Network, South Gippsland Landcare Network, Mornington Peninsula Shire and Western Port Catchment Landcare Network through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program and Port Phillip and Westernport Catchment Management Authority.
