FARMERS NETWORK – Our Objectives are to unite Farmers – for Climate Solutions for Australia
To assist Farmers, for our economy and future farming.
- That Regenerative Farming for Food, Water, Soil and landscape health has strong representation in State and Federal Politics
- Assist farmers to repair their water cycle, and biodiversity at maximum levels
- More education for farmers and agricultural scientists
- We need to educate with a mandated school garden program and syllabus
- Additional funding for regenerative farm works via land-care groups
- Implement work for the dole programs to restore their connection to the land and nature
- Actively promote a national education awareness of regenerative agriculture
- That a government website shares results of increases to production, soil and vegetation health, and health of our river systems, and wetlands
A healthy environment contributes to the water cycle function, which affects the long-term productivity of our farmed landscapes.
Large Scale native land clearing of millions of acres in Queensland, News South Wales & Victoria, has had a devastating effect on our Water Cycle. Clearing land for industrialised farming, including growing fodder for cattle, is damaging to our farming landscape. We depend on dynamic ecosystems focused on maximum biodiversity and health of integrated ecosystems at all levels. Our future farming to grow nourishing food for Australia will be lost if Australia continues to choose- industrial agriculture to represent the overall farming sector, which is largely driven by global profit-obsessed corporations. Even though we grow nourishing food for Australia, we are currently unrepresented.
Garden Projects in schools is essential if our next generations need to take over our highly productive farms for Australia to continue to produce nutrient rich food.
- The fifth landscape Function main focus is on human agency triggering landscape regeneration by working in harmony with natural systems.
Founding Member, Jane, trainer of syntropic farming techniques in the Atherton Tablelands is inspiring many farmers in the region and other parts of Australia. They are living proof, that syntropic farming systems can be adopted for large scale projects or smaller agricultural properties. Her production of edible foods has increased 10-fold, with an impressive worm-count and birdlife to boast.
