A Farming Revolution
The story behind Tarwyn Park Training begins in the beautiful Bylong Valley, where three generations of the Andrews family have lived on “Tarwyn Park” the celebrated home of Natural Sequence Farming.
For over 40 years the property was dedicated to understanding, practicing and teaching the methods of landscape rehabilitation. It was here that Peter Andrews pioneered the internationally recognised Natural Sequence Farming, a technique of regenerative agriculture and land care. A system of farming focusing on implementing natural landscape function back into degraded landscapes.
Tarwyn Park Training began as a way for landholders throughout Australia to learn about Natural Sequence Farming and how it is implemented into agricultural systems as we know them, therefore recreating the core of the past to manage the present. The implementation of Natural Sequence Farming is important for the future stability and productivity of degrading farmland, to ensure that it becomes an aggrading system for generations to come.
The story of Tarwyn Park has been widely communicated with countless radio interviews and newspaper articles along with the story being featured on ABC’s Australian Story four times (these can be viewed here, here, here, and here). The story of Tarwyn Park continues to this day through the Andrew's family and Tarwyn Park Training ensuring that their message continues to be passed on to many.
