Uncommon Sense: Bruce Pascoe And Bill Gammage Explain Aboriginal Land Care Through Fire And Farming
Writer and farmer Bruce Pascoe and historian Bill Gammage join Amy to discuss their new book, Country: Future Fire, Future Farming. They explain how Aboriginal people were, and are, farmers and agriculturalists – and what we urgently need to learn from them, for the sake of our forests, climate, and ecologies. Bill and Bruce explain how and why First Nations people need to benefit from sharing their knowledge.
