The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and Australia Wildlife Conservancy (AWC) have purchased the Kalamurina Ranch, which provides a critical 1.65 million acre corridor between the Simpson Desert Regional Reserve directly to the north, and the Lake Eyre National Park to the south.The Macumbah River and Kallakoopah Creek converge with the Warburton River on Kalamurina before flowing into Lake Eyre – the largest lake in Australia. The groups involved will be minimising human impact and removing feral herbivores and predators that impede the habitats and populations of several endangered and vulnerable animals.

post Gold Leaf Biodynamics

October 24th, 2008

Filed under: Greening Copley — newseditor @ 1:27 pm

Biodynamics is a combination of ‘biological’ and ‘dynamic’ agricultural and horticultural practices.

‘Biological’ practices include a series of organic farming techniques that improve soil health. ‘Dynamic‘ practices are intended to influence biological as well as metaphysical aspects of the farm and garden, increasing vital life force, operating the farm and garden in harmony with natural rhythms (such as planting seeds during certain lunar phases) and energies. – Gold Leaf Biodynamics, 2008

One of our horticultural contributors, Carol the cosmic hobbit, has launched a very interesting and generous blog on all things biodynamic, including an introduction to the principles of biodynamic practice, current dates of auspicious rhythms and advice for vital gardening. This is a wonderful opportunity to ask all of those questions you may have about the nature of biodynamics. Bookmark it!
