This seminar, held by the ACT Division of the Environment Institute of Australia and New Zealand, will be hosted by Professor Andrew Campbell.

Rowan Reid is a forest scientist with over 30 years’ experience as a researcher, lecturer, extension agent and, most importantly, tree grower on his own farm. In his latest book, Heartwood: the art and science of growing trees for conservation and profit, he provides real examples and sound science in support of a radical new approach to both forestry and Landcare. He demonstrates the potential to profit from harvesting timber and other tree products could provide a driver for landscape renewal. Book details.
Charles Massy runs a sheep and cattle property in the Monaro. His concerns about land degradation and humanity’s sustainability challenge led to his current book: Call of the Reed Warbler: A New Agriculture – A New Earth which explores transformative and regenerative agriculture and the vital connection between our soil and our health. It is a story of how a grassroots revolution – a true underground insurgency –can help to save the planet, build healthy people and healthy communities thru our relationship with growing and consuming food. Book reviewed here by Tim Flannery.
