2. Care Farming and how to distribute the Abundance
Presenter: Elaine Bradley (Mary Valley Country Harvest Co-op)

Elaine was awarded a Churchill Fellowship in 2012 to visit the US to see how small farmers worked together and collaborated. With ideas she gained Elaine has been instrumental in supporting and inspiring local growers to network and work together. She is currently an active director of Mary Valley Country Harvest Coop and assists local farmers to distribute local produce through Dagun Market and a food box distribution system.

This is the 3rd presentation in the four month Permaculture Noosa (PCN) series on:

Healthy soil and the critical impact on the health of the species it supports.

ie. plants, livestock and ultimately humans.

With past farming practices having left a legacy of degraded soils as well as the Australian soils being poor to begin with, a lot of work needs to be done to repair and rebuild our soils. Through the knowledge and tools we have through permaculture, we are able to control what we do to and for the soil.

The presenters and discussions at the meetings are considering the role of healthy soil, the impact of good practice on the wider community and the opportunities for each of us to contribute and be rewarded for our efforts.
