Hi all there is an opportunity to aply for some funding to help with your soil health work
An international consortium of scientists have identified advances in improving soil carbon management which could be the key to addressing serious global challenges affecting millions of people.
The Daikon radish seed has arrived and it is cheap. $3.50 a kg will get you a share of this introductory offer. The 'tillage' style radish is potentially one of the best soil-building cover crops ever. Cattle (and presumably other grazers) love it and the large tap-root will turn to compost in the ground.

Microherder Members can now start or contribute to discussions on the forum page of the Microherders web site. This will enable discussions to be more available than the way that we have been using facebook. Just log in and click on the forum tab. I am hoping to use the web page as our primary contact medium now and share posts to the facebook page. This will allow our non-facebooker members to enjoy the discussions and links also.
