|Birds, butterflies, insects and small mammels all need diverse plant life to survive.|
For years, we have treated the symptoms of unhealthy plants by prescribing fertilisers and pesticides or imposing mechanical operations. We have ignored the crucial role of the soil - the area which for milennia has been the backbone for all life on the surface. By working to improve the health of our soil, our plants/crops will grow healthy and in abundance.

... I can't wait for our orchard in the pig paddocks to blossom!
All in all, a very fascinating January, with lots to spear us on at Fordhall for the next 12 months.
