About Your Host:
Stuart Andrews – Bio
Stuart Andrews is a farmer who has dedicated over 30 years of his life to understanding, practicing and teaching land rehabilitation techniques. Stuart was raised on the 1,500-acre property “Tarwyn Park”, Bylong, the celebrated home of Natural Sequence Farming (NSF) pioneered by his father Peter Andrews.
Currently, Stuart’s property “Riverside” in Kybong, marries NSF with other tried and tested models of regenerative agriculture. This trial is intended to establish a model of land rehabilitation that can be scaled up from very small blocks to large acreages, while also allowing the farmer to derive an income from the land. This trial builds upon Stuart’s extensive knowledge of environmentally beneficial farming practices, reflects his commitment to sharing knowledge with others and is guided by models of sustainable agriculture that have been highly successful elsewhere in the world.
