JUST GIVE A FIFTY MATE...
Can we help farmers, their families and their communities come out of this drought better than they went in?
The answer is yes. Of course we can. But it takes more than a flash-flood of money alone. If Australia really wants to help farmers, their families and communities in drought, we need to think out-of-the-box and into-the-future.
What Would Love Do Now was founded in 2017, with the intention to grow into a Charity that could help SEED the many fantastic communities, organisations, innovations, technologies and individuals who are already providing solutions and expertise in the restoration of Australia. An organisation that was not focused on a specific problem that needed a specific answer but rather looked at how we could participate in bringing balance, harmony and regeneration to all areas of our experience. What would love do now?
Located in the rural farming region of Wallangra NSW, we understand that for real change one has to begin with the heart. Our soil. Soil with depleted or no carbon left (the cracked earth you see in drought images) can not hold water. Increase the carbon by a mere 2-6% and the soil begins to hold swimming pools of water. Introduce the idea of sustainable food production for cattle in the way of Fodder Sheds and Holistic Land Management, and we have better soil and more food which results in less chemicals being used. Less chemicals, better food in the grocery stores and less pollution into the waterways and oceans. Cleanup the oceans, save the barrier reef and heal our rainwater/ drinking-water. Plant trees, clean the air and in time end the severity of droughts in Australia. Its all cyclic. Its all doable. All the solutions are there……they just need SEEDING.
So we decided to launch The National Regenerative Agriculture Day and bring Australia’s attention to truly how they can help their farmers, their families and their communities get out of the drought better than when they went in.
Every dollar raised here will be contributed to the vast number of regenerative solutions that need funding. Stretching across our farms, our rural communities, our city foodies, our regional farmers markets and gardens, our ocean warriors, our animal care-takers, to forest growth, indigenous healing, and of course our young people and all their activities. Education, awareness and action. Balance, harmony and regeneration. Love, light and a future earth. With your support we will make 2020 THE YEAR OF REGENERATIVE AGRICULTURE.
Kelly, Helen and Mike and all those who now stand with us as partners, in this, a mighty march towards UNITY and REGENERATION of our home.
