This is a video (4:15 min) about how the Stewart family is regenerating their family farm, Yan Yan Gurt West, in south-western Victoria. Presented by family members, the resource describes how the land was over-cleared in the past and its hydrology or water resources were compromised when swamps were drained. The regeneration strategy for the farm is then illustrated: five land classes have been identified, fenced and revegetated along the boundaries; a web of trees have been grown; and alpacas have been added as guard animals for the sheep and lambs. Andrew and Kristy explain the family’s aims in terms of environmental sustainability, economic sustainability and social/aesthetic sustainability. The video concludes with a description of the sustainability value of the cob studio being built on the property.
