Publisher's Summary

In an era of rapid climate change, this vital account of how agriculture can address major issues is an Australian story with global ramifications. Patrice is at the front line of enormous challenges, from water scarcity and land stewardship to food security and the rural-urban divide. The devastation of drought and the crises created by industrial-scale chemically dependent primary production are discussed and alternatives proposed - along with bold ideas for new sources of energy.

Patrice has travelled the world exploring best practice and invested heavily in organic methods on her farm. She believes we can produce enough good food to feed the world without further environmental wreckage or loss of biodiversity. With glimpses of the individuals who make working the farm so rewarding, Who's Minding the Farm? provides a window into the pains, pleasures and politics of life on the land and promotes new ways of thinking, no matter where you live. 

Who's minding the farm? A shared responsibility for us all.

A must listen for those concerned about climate.

It's a rare treasure when the talented media person obtains the true perspective of a regenerative farmer and puts forth such practical environmental solutions. Very well narrated with some lovely stories.
