Re-inventing Agriculture
 Professor Andrew Campbell, CEO ACIAR, chair
 Rowan Reid, author of Heartwood the art and
science of growing trees for conservation and profit and
 Charles Massy author of Call of the Reed Warbler:
A New Agriculture – A New Earth

 

The seminar will be hosted by Professor Andrew Campbell.
He has been at the leading edge of sustainable agriculture
and natural resource management science and policy in
Australia for more than 30 years including as the first
National Landcare Facilitator.

 

Rowan Reid is a forest scientist with over 30 years’ experience as
a researcher, lecturer, extension agent and, most importantly,
tree grower on his own farm. In his latest book, Heartwood: the
art and science of growing trees for conservation and profit, he
provides real examples and sound science in support of a radical
new approach to both forestry and Landcare. He demonstrates
the potential to profit from harvesting timber and other tree
products could provide a driver for landscape renewal.

Charles Massy runs a sheep and cattle property in the Monaro.
His concerns about land degradation and humanity’s
sustainability challenge led to his current book: Call of the Reed
Warbler: A New Agriculture – A New Earth which explores
transformative and regenerative agriculture and the vital
connection between our soil and our health. It is a story of how a
grassroots revolution – a true underground insurgency –can help
to save the planet, build healthy people and healthy
communities thru our relationship with growing and consuming
food.
