After my recent book review on Jackie French's book, Let the Land Speak, I realised I had some resources I should share for anyone interested in land rehabilitation.
Here is a good website to get acquainted with some Natural Sequence Farming techniques. It has a lot of pictures to give some visual displays of what is possible to rehydrate our landscape in Australia.
From the same author, Cam Wilson, there's a PDF for Low Cost Erosion Control Techniques. Complimentary to that, is also a list of Native Plants which do well, in and around water bodies (specifically Southern Tablelands).
Still on erosion control, there is a page by John Greenfield, with anything and everything you ever wanted to know about Vetiver Grass, and how it prevents soil erosion. I tried implementing this grass last year in our gully, but the first deluge covered the slips with slit and they never emerged again. Thankfully, I still have the mother plant I can divide more slips from.
If you're a Peter Andrews fan, as I am, here is a list of interviews taken at Barramul Stud, one of the places he has worked tirelessly to restore the natural sequences to.
I have gotten the confidence to try new things on our property, thanks to some of this information. While it is mostly for Australian conditions, some of the information may be transferable to overseas locations - but always factor in your local elements and consider your local regulations as well.
