Over summer the neighbour was asked to slash the firebreak around the edge of the biorich plantation. He got over-enthusiatic and slashed between rows as well, plus turning the direct seeded area in ImLal South into a groomed football field. Presumably his 'tidy town' approach was not entirely accidental, rather motivated by a fear of fire spreading from the plantation to consume his property and home.
Not too much damage, but the thickets of silver wattle (see below) are now fragmented. Shit happens – another random adaptation we will have to absorb.
Gib Wettenhall is interested in how we carry out large scale landscape restoration that involves the people who live in those landscapes. That, he believes, would build truly resilient landscapes.
