Podcast: Sustainable Farms
Sustainable Farms is a project by the Australian National University (ANU). ANU has researched and collected data from over 300 farmers engaged in sustainable farming from north-east Victoria to south-east Queensland. It is one of the largest, long-term studies of its kind in the world and now translates these findings to help all farmers better manage the balance between agricultural production and long-term sustainability, and be more profitable along the way. Learn more about they work they do through their podcast series, joining host Gordon Taylor as he interviews project staff and external experts for regular insights into the latest research.

Webinar: Crops and myzocorrial fungi
Dr Kelvin Montagu summarises the potential role of cover crops in managing mycorrhizal fungi in vegetable production.
The webinar covers:
– Why mycorrhizal fungi

Webinar: Smelling soils
As part of the Soil CRC’s research program, a team at the University of Tasmania is working with Soils for Life and other grower groups to develop a simple, affordable and easy to use device which will monitor the activity of soil microbial communities. This device, popularly referred to as an eNose (or electronic nose), can detect many different compounds at the same time. It will measure something similar to an “aroma fingerprint”, and provide useful and useable information to farmers to help them monitor their soil. We held a workshop earlier this year to find out what farmer’s need, join us on the 25th of August for a webinar and Q&A with Soil CRC Project Leader Dr Shane Powell Dr Robert Hardy from the University of Tasmania to find out more.

Chris Cobern from the Upper Goulburn Landcare Network in Victoria was heavily involved in the recovery efforts following the Black Saturday bushfires in 2009. He worked with local communities, government, and volunteers for many years to help the landscape heal and recover. In our upcoming webinar Chris will chat about how he navigated issues around sourcing funding and volunteers, providing training, supporting local landholders, and what he’s learnt that can help groups and organisations working in similar circumstances today. Chris will also be joined by Landcare Australia’s Rowan Ewing, who will give an update on our bushfire recovery fund activities to date, and what’s planned for the coming months.
Recovering after bushfires – what role can Landcare play? will take place at 2pm (AEST) on Tuesday, August 4th, through the Landcarer platform.

Regen Ag Series #1: Mark Wootton on carbon-neutral farming at Jigsaw Farms
A recent conversation with one of Australia’s most prominent sustainable farming advocates completely shocked me when it came to his views on regenerative agriculture (or, “regen ag” as the cool kids call it).
Farmer and owner of Jigsaw Farms in south-west Victoria, Mark Wootton, likened regenerative agriculture to “an evangelical movement”, which is proving to be more of a distraction when it comes to true environmental sustainability and farm productivity.
