Sarah believes that agriculture is a noble practise and forms the health of a civilisation. Her passion is building the capacity of our agricultural communities from the ground up, by reconnecting us to our roles as food and fibre producers. No matter the enterprise, location, or choice of management practice, Sarah thinks the one conversation that unites us is “achieving restoration of soil functionality”.
As an agroecologist with over 30 years of experience in nearly every agricultural practice, Sarah supports individual farmers and small groups to transition their management mindsets and practises towards improved soil and landscape health, supported with in-field observations and fit-for-purpose lab tests. Her purpose, her “WHY”, is to help farmers gain better understanding as to how to appreciate and manage freely available resources – soil, water, sunshine, air, soil micro-workforce, human community – to enable their most effective functionality.
These resources were the inspiration for her business name- Bare Essential Agricultural Resource management- Biologically, first thought of way back in the mid-1990s, not long after her graduating from UNE Rural science Degree. More widely known since 2005 as BEAR Biologics.
If you’re a curious innovative producer who also has an unquenchable thirst for learning and growing themselves, who feels you’re stumbling with what to do next with all the information overwhelm, then Sarah is the ideal coach to support you creating endless possibilities for success and resilience in your business.
