The Accidental Farmer: Lessons in Farming, Biochar and Collaboration is a wonderful true story based around the sugar cane fields in Australia’s Northern NSW area. The story starts in the sugar cane fields in 1987, when a combination of environmental conditions killed all the fish in the Tweed River.
This e-Book, being chapter 5 of The Biochar Revolution, takes us through the unfolding of this incident, from caegrowers being blamed through ignorance, to the realisation that who was right didn’t matter, to collaboration between all stakeholders to find a solution that addressed the local problem of local acidic soils.
The impact of the application of biochar through this process is quite remarkable in its ability to reduce nitrous oxide being discharged into the atmosphere as greenhouse gases. The global ramifications from this real life, farm scale problem and solution need to be widely read and understood, so buy your copy today.
