Graeme Sait, the author, educator, and co-founder of Nutri-tech Solutions is returning to the Central Tablelands.
spoke to members of the Central Tablelands Landcare Group
in April this year on the subject of human health, and specifically, how it relates to soil and animal health.
We had a packed house, and the overwhelming response was â€" â€œwe want more!â€�
has spent the last 20 years of his
life researching the links between soil health, human health and planetary health.
is passionate about the role agriculture plays in all of these things, and has dedicated his
career to sharing his
views and promoting sustainable agriculture around the globe.
travels extensively, speaking to people from all walks of life.
Agriculture is the most important profession on earth, we cannot have food or fibre without agriculture, and the simple fact is; humanity cannot persist without sustainable agricultural practises.
spoke with great passion about climate change in his
recent Tedx talk, â€œHumus â€" the essential ingredientâ€�.
The main message is that the planet is in dire need of help, and there is something that we can do about it.
proclaims that humus can save the world, by capturing carbon in the soil, storing water and protecting the essential nutrients in the soil which are essential for healthy plants with nutritional value for the animals that eat them â€" including us!
Farmers need to adopt regenerative farming practices to build humus, and the rest of the population need to support these farmers through their shopping habits.
Buying direct from famers or from local farmers markets is one way to make a difference.
