Bill and Rhonda Daley from YLAD Living Soils hosted climate expert Professor Tim Flannery and representatives from the Australian Museum on Friday.

The Museum representatives were conducting research for the development of a Centre for Environmental Solutions.

Bill and Rhonda co-founded YLAD Living Soils in 2002 with the slogan 'Putting Life Back Into the Land'.

"Bill and I transitioned from our conventional farming practice in 2001 to a biological farming system that would build soil health, microbiology, plant, and animal health as well as natural resources. This was a very big step to make the move to a system that focused on the three aspects of the soil, namely physical (structure), chemical (minerals) and biological (soil microbiology)," Rhonda explained.

"We never say you can't conduct business as usual, but there are better ways."

Climate Change Projects Manager for the Australian Museum Dr Jenny Newell said it's important to connect with communities remote from the museum.
