How can tools help?
Caring for the soil & water & biodiversity all together can help us maintain connection to place. By acting as kaitiaki, we express care & respect for nature that is mutually nourishing.
Controlling invasive pests (rats, hedgehogs, possums, wasps…) helps increase native biodiversity. Improved soil health from cultivating & composting benefits invertebrate life like worms & insects, which then benefit birds & reptiles.
Composting reduces waste & can help regenerate soil. Collecting rain water enhances water quality by reducing run-off into waste water systems).
Growing your self-reliance (by not needing to buy compost or fertilisers) builds resilience against supply chain disruption & inflation (saves $)!
