Caring for the little things in our soils

Wentworth Group Blueprint

The latest blueprint from the Wentworth Group is a must read item. We really need to be pushing our MPs and political parties and lobby groups for a subsidy of some sort on soil Carbon sequestration as a matter of urgency. As well as making agriculture profitable and sustainable, if we pay farmers to stay home and 'grow' Carbon it will free up all of the jobs in the towns that they are doing now, create jobs in support industries, save transport fuel because people won't have to drive to work from their farms.
Good subsidies for Carbon farming would be the single biggest rural employment scheme in Australia's history.
