a breath of fresh air

It was the mad, crazy-busy time of Organic NZ production, but I made time to slip away down to Riverton in Southland for the Permaculture Hui. I’m so glad I did.

Further we are not convinced that the percentage of carbon actually removed in logs is accurate, as a heck of a lot is still left on site to slow burn back to CO2. Pines on the East Coast also dry out soils (rain held in needles) which is somewhat counterproductive in the context of climate change. Are you aware of the Jena experiment? Basically they have shown…
