Dingo - An important part of the family.
Meet the Crew
Fascinated by soil and the challenge of growing the soil in an agricultural landscape, Jolene has recently finished her PhD focused on soil carbon modelling. The final product is the South Western Australian RothC Modelling (SWARM) Tool which has automated inputs from WA's extensive soil and climate (current/future) databases, and is tuned to estimate soil carbon down to the cross-field scale. This work has enabled her to convert her city kid status into a valuable rural brain with the transition of the family to Pemberton. Here she looks forward to observing the soil system's development under thoughtful land management. She is an educator, course facilitator and "Permaculture for Dummies" interpreter who has been documenting her exploration of soil and Permaculture through her blog - The Soil Hugger's Journey.
