In our consumerist age we have got away from all that. We have lost track of connecting to our natural world. I meet farmers who would not consider themselves conservationist ? you know, `fertilise the bush, bulldoze a greenie’ type of people. These are mates of mine and you go into their sheds they’ve got every piece of tin that has possibly been on the farm for last 40 years, they’ve got balls of twine, they capture their own water, they take care of their land because if they don’t, they bugger it and destroy their source of income.
They are planting trees, they’re looking after the land, they are nurturing and understanding of the natural world. They do it because it is the right thing to do, because it makes sense and because it is the right way to go.
