Upper Lachlan Landcare is hosting a series of lectures by three inspirational speakers covering soil health, plant health, animal health and human nutrition and how that affects our wellbeing at the Crookwell Services Club on Monday June 4.

Speakers include; Graeme Sait the internationally acclaimed author educator co-founder of Nutri-Tech Solutions, a recognised world leader in sustainable agriculture/horticulture. Graeme is a highly sought-after keynote speaker at conferences around the world and he is also the founder of Radiance, an annual six-day Wellness Festival that attracts crowds in excess of 16,000.

Graeme specialises in the link between nutrition and wellness. As a guest on the popular” Life in a Teaspoon” Teleseminar last week, Graeme reminded us “We are what we eat and what eat comes from the soil. If our food producing soils are minerally depleted, biologically inactive and chemically contaminated, then so is our food … Mr Sait claims.

The second speaker is Dr Carole Hungerford, author of “Good Health in the 21st Century” an enlightening work which champions a nutrition-based approach to wellness.

Dr Hungerford gave an inspirational presentation at the Landcare Forum in Parkes recently about the health problems associated with modern mass food production and associated farming practices. She argues that when soil health declines and microbe content diminishes, the foods grown on that soil can’t deliver micronutrients crucial for both animal and human health. She presents the facts with charm and wit and is thoroughly engaging. Her bestselling book “Good health in the 21st century” will be available for sale on the day.

The third speaker is Rhonda Daly, a fourth generation farmer from Young and the founder of YLAD Living Soils. Rhonda is passionate about restoring soils to a balanced, healthy, biological alive system that will produce healthy plants, animals and people

Having witnessed the degradation of soil eco-systems and the negative impact on environmental and human health from her own personal experience, Rhonda realised that the quality of our food is directly related to the health and nutritional balance of the soil and she is an advocate reducing toxic chemicals in agriculture.

This is a rare opportunity to discover the strategies to improve your production on the farm, your health and your enjoyment of life with three of the most passionate and informed speakers available.

Morning Tea and lunch will be provided and places are limited so registration for this event is essential by 30th May 2012. All enquiries to Mary Bonet at Upper Lachlan Landcare ph 0459352892 and email [email protected]南京夜网.au
