Sunday July 31 2022 - The Forest Underground

We welcome Tony Rinaudo this Sunday

Tony has a truly inspiring story to tell about the regeneration of millions of hectares of land firstly in Niger, west Africa,  and then into many other countries across the globe.

In his 17 years in Niger, Tony, who grew up in Myrtleford in Victoria, discovered an embarrassingly simple and affordable method of regreening land by reviving damaged trees rather than planting new ones. It’s a technique that not only alleviates poverty and soaks up carbon, but also costs almost 36 times less than planting trees from scratch.

This is not some green fantasy. Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration (FMNR) has, from small beginnings, already regreened more than 18 million hectares in 27 countries, reduced our carbon footprint and transformed millions of lives and livelihoods.

The Forest Underground offers tangible hope for climate change, as well as a deeply moving account of one man’s faith-journey. In a seemingly hopeless crisis, this is the good-news story that will move hearts and hands to care for the planet.

Tony has a wonderful faith in God, and his prayers were answered magnificently with the profoundly simple but effective Farmer Managed Natural Resources FMNR method

Come and hear about this ongoing green revolution that is providing food and income for many, and restoring land once left desolate.

Everyone is welcome!
