“For 200 years, our farmers have been using methods developed in European climates and landforms which, in Australia, have wreaked havoc.  On the driest inhabited continent on earth, the delicate balance between the land, its climate and inhabitants has been disrupted.  Where once out country was able to survive long droughts and to prevent salinity, it is now on the brink of irreparable damage.  And it’s not just a problem for farmers – it’s starting to affect our cities.  Can we pull ourselves back from the brink?
With a lifetimes experience of working the land, Peter Andrews has seen the landscape change.  He has watched and experimented with eh movement of water.  He has observed the importance of biodiversity – weeds included.  And he’s concluded that to save Australia we need to return the landscape to its original systems.  From his observations a radical new approach has developed.  Long rejected by farmers, scientists and politicians, Peters theories are being taken more and more seriously – because his theories work.”
