The earth is a beautiful place, but it's also delicate. With so many people and animals depending on the land for their daily needs from food sources to places of safety from disasters or violence-the ecosystem cannot survive if we don't take care of it!
What is a Solution? Listen to this episode as Ethan discusses Regenerative Agriculture, Diversity, Holistic Management, and More...
Who is Ethan Gordon?
Ethan Gordon is a Ph.D. Candidate with the Institute for Sustainable Futures, University of Technology Sydney. He uses discourse analysis to explore regenerative agriculture and other ecological alternatives to extractive agricultural models.
Through action research alongside the Institute of Ecological Agriculture (IEA), Ethan aims to understand how transformation can be facilitated in agriculture to prevent further ecosystem degradation and social unrest. IEA is a co-operative of farmers, consultants, and educators dedicated to, and advocating for, healthy agricultural landscapes and communities. Together, they are developing an accreditation designed to support the ethical and professional standards of consultants, educators, and trainers in ecological (regenerative) agriculture.
This is important work to Ethan because it speaks directly to his family’s custodianship of Moffat Falls, a pastoral property located in the lands of the Dunghutti, Gumbaynggirr, and Anaiwan Nations. Moffat Falls is a steer trade operation. Through holistic landscape management, they utilise their grazing animals for carbon sequestration and are early adopters of carbon farming.
