Kandos School of Cultural Adaptation's bio:

Inspired by Ian Milliss’s ambitious vision for Kandos (presented during Cementa13), Kandos School of Cultural Adaptation (KSCA) was founded on the idea that if art can be defined as cultural adaptation, then anyone practising cultural adaptation can be considered an artist. KSCA has embarked on several projects including Futurelands2 (November 2016) and The Hemp Initiative with Gilbert Grace and Stuart Andrews. KSCA: Ian Milliss, Gilbert Grace, Laura Fisher, Alex Wisser, Diego Bonetto, Lucas Ihlein Ann Finegan, Christine McMillan. This project was made possible by the generous support of the Australia Council for the Arts.

A rare privilege: visit Marloo, the property of farmer and educator Stuart Andrews of Tarwyn Park Training. Andrews will demonstrate how he is rehabilitating severely degraded areas of Marloo to a fertile and water-retaining state by employing the principles of Natural Sequence Farming. This is a chance to hear firsthand from an innovative farmer what it means to practice sustainable, economically viable land management.
