Developing Fertile & Functional Biological Systems

A Live Webinar Event

There are many examples of productive, resilient ecosystems, around the globe, growing healthily, on nothing but the inherent sunlight, air, water and earth.

The deeper we look into it, the more we find out about the wonderful functions various species in living communities perform and the ways they can generate fertility. 

By utilising living organisms to do some of the work, particularly in an agricultural context, we can build stronger systems with lower labour, input and environmental costs.

Join us for this inspiring webinar with Mark Tupman from Productive Ecology, on the biological principles we can follow and practices we can adopt to make best use of our natural resources in primary production enterprises.

When we look after life, life looks after us!
