Presenter – Robyn Harrison

2nd presentation in the series on: Healthy soil and its critical impact on the health of the species it supports. ie.  plants, livestock and ultimately humans.

Robyn Harrison moved to the area over three years ago and after attending a Permaculture Noosa meeting became inspired and passionate about growing healthy food and seed saving. Having become aware of the urgency for all of us in the community to take control of the food we eat, in order to ensure our own health, Robyn wants to share just how easy it can be to do.

The genetic blueprint for a plant is held in the seed from which it grows.
Modern farming methods are reducing this pool of genetic information so that variability in our food supply is being starved out.
Why does this matter?
What does this mean for the security of our food in the future?
What can we do about it?
Why is seed saving so important and what role does healthy soil play?
