Released Thursday, 4th February 2021
Good episode? Give it some love!
In recent episodes I’ve been looking at the work of Dr Doug Tallamy. Dr Tallamy is an entomologist who has become alarmed at the loss of biodiversity due to climate change and habitat loss. He’s launched in his words “a grassroots call to action to restore biodiversity and ecosystem function by planting native plants and creating new ecological networks.”

In these podcasts I want to share ways in which people are implementing the kinds of changes he is advocating. In the previous episode I began a conversation with Julia Field. Julia lives near Adelaide on the southern coast of Australia. She’s in a dry climate so water management is a high priority. Julia has been on her property for about fourteen years. She is well on her way towards restoring native plants to her land. At the end of the previous episode Julia was just beginning to describe the animals that have moved back to her property now that she has created wildlife corridors for them. We begin with a conversation about koala bears and hopping lessons for a young kangaroo.

Julia also talks about dealing with invasive plants, including some that are toxic for horses, water management in a dry climate, Jane Myers equicentral system, and wicking beds in place of conventional vegetable gardens. She provides lots of ideas and inspiration for anyone managing land in an arid climate.
