Three inspiring stories about lowering our carbon footprint.
Destocking gave them a chance to slowly restore the land and sequester carbon. Wetlands came to life, perennial grasses came back and feral numbers went down. They featured on AUSTRALIAN STORY TV and came to SLF to join the growing number of regenerative farmers on the front foot with climate change.
Michael Ableman sat down by the Yarra with Vivien to talk about growing tonnes of food in Vancouver’s Skid Row. He said it was crazy that so few people are involved in growing our food.”We’re suffering a crisis of participation not a food crisis”.
He thinks the farmers of the future will be first skilled in sequestering carbon and sponging up rain fall as the climate becomes more unpredictable. His book is called STREET FARM, GROWING FOOD, JOBS AND HOPE ON THE URBAN FRONTIER. You can find out more at SOLE FOODS.
