LEARNING FROM NATURE
Improving the Profitability of your Horticultural Enterprise
It doesn’t need to be so hard to make a profit from growing healthy food and protecting your natural ecosystems.
Develop opportunities to improve the profitability of your business. Reduce your input costs and production losses due to extreme weather by:
- improving ecological functions in your production systems and
- using the ecological services your natural ecosystems provide using a toolkit of ecological practices.
Dr Wendy Seabrook is an agro-ecologist, innovator and strategic thinker, passionate about helping people benefit by tapping into the wisdom nature provides. Wendy began her career in threatened and pest species research, before specialising in the application of ecology to support food producers.
