Celebrating the Impact
When we launched Tarwyn Park Training in 2012, the motivation was to distil Peter Andrews’ insights into the Australian landscape into a learning program that would empower others to create impact. In our first year, we ran just two courses. In our tenth anniversary year, we have over 20 courses scheduled and by the end of 2022, over 1000 individuals will have taken part in the learnings. Every person who goes through our course has the power to influence others.
“There are 250,000 farmers in Australia. Our vision is to have 20% of the population practising regenerative farming by the end of 2025. If you want to make a difference, get on board.”
With government, businesses and consumers recognising the real and present need to do something about our environmental crisis, we feel now is our time. The recent flooding events are just another example of the increasingly erratic and destructive weather patterns that are occurring due to a mismanaged landscape. Momentum is building. Our principles are applicable worldwide, and we have had interest from America as well as farmers in Ethiopia. The more damaged the landscape is, the more critical our information is, and Australia is a blueprint of how a landscape can survive.
Natural sequence farming addresses all our landscape’s current failings. For over 40 years, Tarwyn Park has been a laboratory dedicated to understanding, practising, and teaching the methods of natural sequence farming. Implementing this method has created an ecosystem capable of answering many of the world’s present environmental problems, such as erosion, salinity, sediment loss, fertility decline, biodiversity loss, climate change and desertification.
We have created a system that farms water and builds soil instead of losing it. It has triggered the natural sequence of a landscape, where plants run the system. Once water is managed effectively and a biodiverse combination of plants are present. Plants drive the building of soil, fertility, and productivity and eventually the restoration of a landscape.
Every single person can start to create an impact. If you are not a farmer, you can do it at home in your garden and veggie patch. We now have teams and mentors in NSW, Victoria, and Queensland. If you would like to be a part of the change for a better world, it may be time to book into one of our courses.
