After organics the idea of permaculture came about, and from that fusion has slowly come forward agriculture as a mimic of nature; or agriculture utalising the ethnobotanicals of a region.
Instead of recreating the landscape for agriculture, looking at the landscape and saying that this micro-site of the bioregion could have supported these economic plants. If I place them in this mix at this density I can obtain a viable crop that will support myself and the other animals of the local biosphere.
The beauty of this approach is that it can exist alongside conventional agriculture providing regeneration of riparian zones and shelter belts. I wild-craft from my eco-zones and am planting fruit, nut and timber trees as well as trees with oil-bearing leaves. My long term goal being self-sufficiency in my raw flavouring materials for my Liqueurs, wild dried herbs, essential oils and craft timber.

Australia is a unique land.
Australia is a land of many years of drought,
with the occasional flood.
Australia is a dry land,

Australia is a land with dreaming,
and empathy, warmth and awareness.
and from this land flows a celebration
of sights, sounds, visions and tastes.
Australia is a unique land with a unique essence.

when he created Rainforest Liqueurs,
using many of the indigenous fruits and leaves
that occur naturally on or near his property at Maleny,
in the green ribbon of Eastern Australia.
