Sustainable Land Use
IMAGINE a New Zealand countryside in which:
~ Well-cared-for, productive farmland is mixed with patches of native bush and wetlands, and a variety of native birds can readily be seen;
~ The streams are all fenced off and lined with native vegetation, their waters run clear and support many species of fish;
~ The soils are healthy, rich in organic matter and earthworms, and the partly planted slopes are free of slips and landslides; and
~ You can put a well down anywhere and the groundwater comes up free of pesticides and pathogens, with negligible nitrate levels, and is absolutely safe to drink.
Ecologic’s aim is to make that vision a reality across New Zealand within a generation.
What are the barriers we face?
