DR CHRISTINE JONES, HERO OF THE NEW AGRICULTURAL REVOLUTION
We were privileged to have an opportunity to recognise the contribution of the founder and intellectual leader of the soil carbon movement, Dr Christine Jones. The dedication on the plaque says:
"Dr Christine Jones risked all to realise her vision of the nation’s grasslands and farmland perpetually green and their soils rich with carbon. Her great compassion for the land and those who work on it compelled her to develop many successful theories to explain the rapid accumulation of carbon in soil. Her ability to communicate the drama of the soil carbon story has inspired many to dedicate their energy to the soil carbon solution in an era when they are most needed. Now.
HERO OF THE NEW AGRICULTURAL REVOLUTION
Gratefully Acknowledged By Members of the Carbon Coalition"
The presentation took place at the Yass Area Network of Landcare Groups' "Your Land, Your Soil, Your Future"
