Regarding upgrading the NSA website I would love to see detailed case studies perhaps of failures as well as successes, and approved technical information.
Also as you progress if NSA farmers are attending any local farmers markets when and where would be good to know.

Hi Colin sorry to hear that the forum disturbs you. In my experience the progress of any idea depends on the community that promotes it. Whenever you have a community you have politics, its unavoidable. If you suppress the natural discussion because it is broader than your vision of what is importan...

Re: Peter's experience - cropping/grazing?

Out of curiousity, does Peter's experience include crops or meat animals? I can't remember from the book. Some local farmers were dismissing his advice based on him being a 'horse person' and not a cropper, grazier or market gardener... Why not try asking them some more questions? Do they for insta...

Re: Coorong

Lets face it Shirley, not this Government nor any other Government is going to fix these problems. For starters, as per usual they are looking at the wrong end of the problem. The Coorong is at the end of a very long problem, going all they way up the Murray into the Snowy Mountains. We, the people...

Does her disagreement stem from trying or is it based only on what she has been told. Many people say the same about Peters ideas but have never tried them.

"Pristine, Untouched forest my arse, I hand planted it!" If you can stop your car safely and look on the Black Spur, you will see the trees all planted in straight rows.
That explains why we had observed the straight lines of trees many times :lol:

Re: Aquaponics

Does anybody know of any research or info on the nutritional value of vegetables grown with an aquaponic system as opposed to soil grown? At the moment I am not aware of any studies, I can tell you that the quality of what I have grown seems equal to our normal vegi garden. Also if studies are to b...

To me it seems that if this plant has evolved over millions of years to succeed in low phosphorus environments it probably has many other characteristics that assist it do so. If it is used in its own right to provide crops in natural farming systems perhaps it would be of great benefit in improving...

Computers cannot model chaotic systems like the weather, just look how well they did with global finances. However having said that many of the actions that would lower co2 out...
