#025 Extra 2 - The Kachana Back-Story
With Chris Henggeler at the homestead
Due to the popularity of podcast #025, and the fact that we hated editing this part out of the main podcast to begin with, here’s Chris talking with Anthony back at the homestead about the back-story to Kachana.
They explore Chris’s formative beginnings in Rhodesia, how the family came to acquire this disused part of the famed El Questro, and the personal changes that were needed for the great successes at Kachana to be realised.
And just in case the wind played too much havoc with our recording in the field, Chris and Anthony delved a little further here into some of the key issues from the main podcast - the importance of having people on country, along with of course the new megafauna, how holistic grazing works with cattle (and donkeys) as today’s diprotodons, the value of the AWC and its conservation model, and what needs to change to help other pastoralists regenerate the land.
