Aboriginal agricultural strategies are gaining traction.

Bruce Pascoe produced evidence of how the land was 200 years ago. His book Dark Emu has shown us the shocking damage we have done since we brought European farming methods to this land.

His revolutionary and stubborn determination to demonstrate his strategies on his small farm are frequently aired on ABC radio.
