Sydney, Australia, is a global city, blessed to still have areas of remnant natural bushland scattered throughout its suburbs.

Some incredible wildlife still occurs here too. The problem is that bushland areas are extremely sensitive to invasive weeds and can ...

Majella Stevens and partner Jonah Herbst have restored their land into a thriving property, despite clear evidence of its prior poor land management when they purchased it in 2013 in Broadswater, Queensland. The biodiversity, and the resulting effectiveness of their land, was poor. Free range cattle grazing by the previous owner resulted in bare soil, soil capping, overgrazed plants, erosion of creek and dam banks, weed invasion, and mineral depletion – despite two tonnes of fertiliser applied ...
