Lightbulb Natural Sequence Farming

Water that runs uphill ..... Madness! Or so it was thought - until now ....

Since it is of global significance, I thought I would start a dedicated thread to this revelation, revolution, call it what you will, but the work of visionary, maverick, guru, intuitive landscape whisperer, pioneer, saviour, immovable object/irresistible force, author, oft time pariah, and now OAM, Peter Andrews, is way too important to get lost in the noise.

His Natural Sequence Farming is a glorious legacy to the world, a long awaited and much needed cure to the destruction wrought by modern agricultural and livestock farming man.

I would highly recommend Peter's two brilliant books:
"BACK from the BRINK"

A brief NSF schematic introduction:

The main NSF websites:

ABC TV Australian Story NSF documentary series (I suggest you make your own copies of transcripts and additional material as permitted by copyright law):

Some further references of similar and derivative work: .... Craig Sponholtz

Thumbs up

Natural Sequence Farming guru & founder, Peter Andrews OAM has a new website:

It contains a wealth of information, links, and a host of relevant papers (follow links).

Get into it, get on it, join in, and get it done.

Since you seem to be quite a proponent of this, or at least have a passion about the concept, can you provide your own summary here in-forum? Or a link to one?

The Wikipedia article is rather shallow in content, but the other links are either long-winded and lacking even a semblance of depth or conversely are not for casual reading. I was hoping to find a synopsis somewhere in between "cursory" and "needing a degree in horticulture and natural systems science."

i wouldn't mind a few square miles to practise this on myself.
all very well for squattocracy to get medals for this but the problem is too many people and ancient soils.
good luck to him and the ideas, yes i read a few links, but it is going to need a bit more than this to be real.
unless they stop immigrants, refuse to allow ownership of more than 20 acres a head, cut out farming of fields mire than 5 acres (especially of horses, sheep, goats and cattle) and give back Land to aboriginals, it is a dream of a middle class, well meaning old white bloke and not much more.

i dont want to be misunderstood, i was privileged to buy 6 acres and live there. but i dont think these ideas work from principle alone. it is a huge continent with little arable land and that is spoken for. first kill all the camels, waterbuffs, rabbits and other vermin and get rid of sheep. that would be a start.

i am not racist at all, by stop immigrants i mean of any kind and take the pressure off where suburbs are eating up precious arable land. you look at the backyards of many of the 1st generation italian immigrants for example and you see prolific gardens but today it is lawns and malls spreading out. bushfires roar through those suburbs too. the best start for any of this would be in local councils planning with requirements of green growth of the right kind and rain water preservation.
