(8) TEDxDubbo – Guy Webb – Terra Carbonicum Maxima: Soil Carbon Sequestration in Broad-acre Farming – YouTube

Published on 12 Sep 2011 Guy founded GAIA Consultancy in 2006 as a structure to introduce biological farming principles into broad-acre farming throughout the NSW grain belt and beyond. The primary focus of the business centres on improving soil carbon as a base line for soil fertility and crop resilience in unpredicable climatic conditions. Guy has dedicated much time and resources towards educational seminars and articles aimed at helping growers to better understand plant nutrition and the role soil fertility, soil biology and soil carbon in creating more resilient, regenerative and economical farming systems. TEDxDubbo focused attention on what we call FACETS — Food, Agriculture, Climate, Energy, Topsoil and Sustainability. These FACETS are actually potent ideas shared by everyday people with an interest in these disciplines. In many of these topics there is an awareness campaign; the aim of bringing our community together united against catastrophic failures in our food-chain, environment and health. It is worth mentioning that we are also indebted to our natural systems for our economic wealth. Failures in Food, Agriculture, Climate, Energy, Topsoil and Sustainability are not just a local issue — they are a global concern. http://tedxdubbo.com/
