Why Peter Andrews advocates planting on the hilltops. Planting on hilltops brings up the nutrients which will find their own way down. They also stabilise the soil.
Why keep native grasses? Hugo and hazel discuss the benefits of natives grasses.
After the bushfires was anything added back into the soil like fish or kelp to feed the microbes? Hazel shows Hugo how Peter Andrews suggestion of spreading chook manure on the high points has helped achieve fertility easily. ?If it?s too hard you are doing it wrong.? A Peter Andrews philosophy.
A closer look at planting out on the contour line. Hazel Fox tells Hugo Disler how she constructed the swale and the value it provides.
An overview of how Peter Andrews works on a new property. He looks at contours, planting on hilltops and transporting fertility up to the top of the hill using animals.
Please note: Due to typo we have said ‘export’ fertility. It is ‘transport ‘ fertility – a major difference as Natural Sequence Farming is all about retaining the nutrients. Our apologies to Hazel. Ed.
