Both under the shed and out in the paddock, they were provided with the theoretical and practical skills needed to start improving the condition of their land.

'Biodiversity in Crisis' - BBC World Service

Peter Andrews and The Mulloon Institute’s Gary Nairn have been interviewed for the BBC World Service’s Science in Action program, for an episode looking at ‘Biodiversity in Crisis.

The program was presented by Roland Pease in May 2019 and looks into Australian farmers who are using ‘weeds’ to help conserve their land, particularly in areas hit by drought, where they are planting and encouraging wild plants which have been shown to retain moisture in the land.

LISTEN to the program online, from 20 minutes 09 seconds.
