After reading this latest IBI release, my recommendation is that as farmers, responsible vegetation managers, researchers and educators we should think that this information presented in the white paper is not just limited to Coffee production and / or to subtropical climate!
By linking the cascading effects and values we get a holistic picture and appreciate the multifaceted linkages and synergies.
It is a systems approach leading to a circular, regional economy with interested participants and potential visitors… – The Harvest Launceston Market every Saturday morning is the classic example where this can be experienced – zero waste is the goal and lots of ‘productive fun’ for all.
I am grateful for people like Kathleen Draper and her Associates who have voluntarily invested a great amount of time and energy over past years on this important work.
The benefits will be shared by many…
