Newly published: Natural Asset Farming

We’re delighted to announce the publication of our new book, Natural Asset Farming. The book provides practical guidance on enhancing seven natural assets on farms, bringing together the stories and experiences of farmers with the results of extensive on-farm research undertaken by Sustainable Farms.

Published by CSIRO Publishing, Natural Asset Farming: Creating Productive and Biodiverse Farms is authored by four members of the Sustainable Farms team – Lead Scientist David Lindenmayer, Project Director and social scientist Michelle Young, ecologist Dave Smith and communications manager and writer Suzannah Macbeth.

The book emerges from the work of the Sustainable Farms project at The Australian National University, bringing together the experience of farmers, expertise from the Landcare movement, and the results of 20 years of detailed ecological studies undertaken on farms in Australia’s south-eastern wheat-sheep belt.

There are many approaches to sustainable agriculture, but Natural Asset Farming has something to offer for everyone managing farming land in Australia. Whether it’s a relatively small project like fencing a paddock tree, or a larger project such as enhancing a farm dam, protecting natural assets can help improve biodiversity and farm resilience.
