Soil Land Food offers professional consulting services in soils, rural landscapes, regenerative and organic agriculture, composting, agribusiness, rural extension, community development, rural cooperatives and food systems. The team has years of hands-on experience in regenerative agriculture, extension and community development. Our clients include Landcare groups, Regional NRM Bodies, State and Local Government, growers groups, rural cooperatives and a wide range of agribusinesses. For some recent examples of our work see the Projects page.
We prefer face to face consulting but can do online based consultation too! Using a collaborative approach we use a three step approach to all our consulting work:
- Firstly we get to know you and your situation. Each farming system or project is unique and we need to understand your situation in depth before we can help you.
- Then we develop a comprehensive process in consultation with you. We make sure the process is relevant, realistic and meets your personal, business and environmental goals.
- Finally we can help you put your plan into action and provide ongoing support as you move forward towards your goals.
Regenerative and Organic Agriculture
Composting & Biofertilisers
Soils & Rural Land Management
We are able to consult on soil and land management issues such as soil carbon projects, grazing management, soil erosion, farm hydrology, landscape rehydration and rural revegetation. If you are looking to develop a Whole Farm Plan then we can assist in farm resource assessment, mapping as well as property and enterprise planning.
Community & Food System projects
David’s knowledge surrounding soil health and in particular biological function in soil is second to none. David has an excellent teaching style that works well with adults which gives you the right mix to achieve good outcomes. David’s formal training as an agroecologist gives him a good understanding of how most types of agriculture work in different environments so he is able to talk to farmers on their level enabling greater understanding of the information he is trying to convey. David has advised many members of our group and he is considered our ‘go to’ person whenever we are planning projects or field days. He has conducted several field days and workshops for our group and remains top of list whenever we are planning an event.
On a personal note I have known and worked with David for the last few years. We have presented at many workshops and field days and he is still teaching me new things every time. It is a pleasure to work with David and I look forward to his continued support of myself and our group.
