As Tasmanian author and regenerative farmer Rachael Treasure found, changing from a conventional, high input grazing system to a low input regenerative system doesn’t happen overnight: https://soilsforlife.org.au/regenerating-pastures-with-rachael-treasure/

Soils For Life are excited to be launching a new project in partnership with the Australian Government (Future Drought Fund) and regional stakeholders in South Australia, focusing on building drought resilience through fostering local innovation. The South Australian Paddock Labs project will work ...with facilitators, advisors and groups of 25 farmers in each of the Northern & Yorke and Eyre Peninsula districts to explore different practices. The project will use an innovative citizen-science model, supporting farmers to take a central role throughout the process. Want to be involved?

“When we inherited our little farm near Richmond in Tasmania four years ago, the soil was really dead. No earthworms, no organic matter, it was a biological desert." As Tasmanian novelist and regenerative farmer, Rachael Treasure discovered, changing from a conventional, high input grazing ...system to a low input regenerative system doesn’t happen instantly and things may have to get a bit worse before they get better.

Rachael and her partner Daniel have been regenerating their farm that they inherited four years ago; “We made the decision to rest the land for a year to see what indicator plants (‘weeds') returned. We chose to farm with zero synthetic fertiliser and pesticide inputs, and used high density mob grazing of sheep and cattle as a tool to cycle biomass back into the soil."
