An absolutely amazing story of how two very different men, Peter Andrews and the late Tony Coote, came together to literally rejuvenate Australia’s drought-stricken farmlands against amazing odds.
Much of their work, which essentially took the land back to how it worked natural for thousands of years before Australia was colonised, has been technically illegal, initially attracted the annoyance of their neighbouring farmers, even caused arguments and rifts between family members.
Today, their practices are being seen as the saviour of millions of acres of farmlands from desertification, even in the worst of droughts.
