The Green Aust. Policy

O'Leary, L. (1983) The Green Aust. Policy. Stock and Land, 27 January 1983. [Publication] [Special Collections]


Farm development can become impossible if the soil is damaged by incorrect regional conservation strategies. Ernest Jackson's book, Replenish the Earth, which deals with watersheds and valleys in most parts of Australia, shares Mr Jackson's experiences and illustrates his devotion to organising care of Australia's soil. Mr Jackson is a farmer's conversationalist, going into farming in 1926 on 444 acres of irrigation land at Lockington, battling through the Great Depression and then selling his share of the family farm soon after World War II. Mr Jackson became a Save the Forests Campaign officer, founded the Watershed Association of Victoria. was a temporary Department of Agriculture extension officer and represented water supply agencies.
