It’s All About the Soil

July 16, 2017

For generations young farmers had been taught that ‘crooked furrows are the sign of a crooked

mind’. So they had developed the skills that produced this neat, ordered approach to farming.

Then someone pointed out to them that the lovely rich thick brown water pouring down the

Fitzroy River in flood was the best of their farm’s topsoil heading out to sea not only damaging

one of the natural wonders of the world, but seriously impoverishing their farming land, never to

be returned.
