Did you watch the ABC Landline on Monday 11th July?
If you did you would have been blown away with the work of Dr Christine Jones from Amazing Carbon.
We realise that many of you may have missed Landline as our PM took the airwaves to talk about the proposed Carbon Tax.
What a pity! Because the real carbon talk was on Landline. If only what Christine had to say was listened to by those proposing the tax!
Did you know that Australian farmers farming biologically and increasing carbon in the soil can reverse global warming caused by carbon dioxide worldwide? You’ll be astounded by how little is needed to achieve this.
Hear what Christine has to say.
The great part is that she does have the proof to show what she is saying is fact.
Farming Secrets recently filmed Tony Evans of Camperdown Compost and the excellent work that he is doing with waste management on dairy farms. You can see and hear more of Tony on this blog.
Also you can see more of his work on the ABC Landline website which featured his work this week along with Gary Zimmer and others.
The report starts with Anne Kruger, Presenter who says: You’ve probably heard of the term biological farming. But what exactly does it mean? Those who practise it say it’s a way of farming that combines scientific methods with common sense.
In essence, it’s all about the soil, the so-called building blocks of life. Biological farming aims to encourage the beneficial microorganisms in the soil. And those who’ve embarked on it say it’s transforming their farms and their lives.
