New Legal Entity for NSF

Postby duane » Sat Jun 16, 2007 8:43 pm

Finally a newly Incorporated Legal entity for NSF has been established, called Natural Sequence Association.

For information on the new NSA click on www.naturalsequenceassociation.org.au

The idea is to build local nsf chapters along the lines of local Landcare groups.

Individuals and communities interested in building knowledge and capacity in their local area can visit the site to get information and to look at the first NSA Chapter...the Upper Shoalhaven Chapter of NSA.

Definitions

Fertile and productive refers to ecological as well as agricultural and otherwise anthropocentric notions of fertility and productivity. Fertility refers to the ecological functioning of the system; its biodiversity, its carbon, water and nutrient cycling efficiency and its capacity to sustain communities in the long term. Productivity refers to the outputs relative to the inputs of the system, both in economic and ecological terms.
Landscape, in this case, refers to the biophysical environment e.g. a catchment, bioregion, continent.
Communities refers to both ecological and human communities and the interaction between the two.

Natural sequence farming
By Sarina Locke ABC Rural NSW

Friday, 09/03/2007

Australia's first meeting of an association to support the environmental farming techniques of Peter Andrews is happening tonight in Braidwood.

Peter Andrews developed Natural Sequence Farming on his property in the Hunter Valley and has recently released his story in a book Back from the Brink.

It's received support from the likes of John Williams from the Wentworth group of scientists. Grazier Martin Royds at Braidwood is setting up the first Chapter of the National Association for Natural Sequence farming in Braidwood tonight to get projects on an interactive website.

He believes it should become as significant as the Landcare movement.
