Pulse of the Earth Festival Highlights

November 19, 2019

The Groundswell and the Pulse of the Earth Festival was a tremendous success.  The video below captures the essence of the weekend.  The accompanying text is as it appears on youtube.

This video shows highlights from Pulse of the Earth: a Festival of Regeneration and Groundswell from the weekend of 7th-8th September, 2019 in Bingara, NSW. The setting is The Living Classroom, an organisation on the Bingara Town Commons founded to demonstrate and support sustainable, ecological land management. The Living Classroom, Bingara’s Vision 20/20 committee, and the Kandos School of Cultural Adaptation (KSCA) developed these events as part of the 2 year project ‘An artist, a farmer and a scientist walk into a bar…’.

This project has supported a number of collaborations exploring regenerative farming, soil health, Aboriginal country, solar energy, carbon sequestration and wild foods. The two events were supported by many local volunteers and organisations and welcomed people from across NSW and further afield.
