A call to arms from Patrice Newell who has dedicated her life to land management at Elmswood in the Hunter Valley.

In an era of rapid climate change, this vital account of how agriculture can address major issues is an Australian story with global ramifications. Patrice is at the frontline of enormous challenges, from water scarcity and land stewardship to food security and the rural-urban divide. The devastation of drought and the crises created by industrial-scale chemically-dependent primary production are discussed and alternatives proposed – along with bold ideas for new sources of energy. Patrice has travelled the world exploring best practice and invested heavily in organic methods on her farm. She believes we can produce enough good food to feed the world without further environmental wreckage or loss of biodiversity. With glimpses of the individuals who make working the farm so rewarding, her book provides a window into the pains, pleasures and politics of life on the land and promotes new ways of thinking, no matter where you live. Who’s Minding the Farm? A shared responsibility for us all.

'A heartwarming informative and engaging account of sustainable farming down under.'
