NEW BOOK: Rick Farley – a biography
Rick Farley was one of the architects of the national Landcare program, which created a wholly new level of dialogue and engagement between the farm sector and the conservation sector. He was one of the all too rare creative and honest free-thinkers on Australian natural resource management – among many other things. His death in 2006 left us much poorer in the debates over water, land use, and rural conservation.
‘A Way Through: The Life of Rick Farley’, is by Nicholas Brown and Susan Boden, and published by New South Books (ISBN 9781921410857; paperback released February 2012, rrp AUD$39.95).
Andrew Campbell recently posted a good review of the biography at The Conversation.
