Slow walking movement in NSW, reintroducing wombats to benefit the environment and other wildlife, and a small grain Renaissance in Iowa

 wombats are being reintroduced at Mulgoa in the foothills of the Blue Mountains, bringing benefits for the environment and other native wildlife; and a small grain Renaissance is happening in Iowa as a growing number of farmers are planting small grains like oats, alfalfa and rye to regenerate soils, clean up waters and extend the growing season on family farms.
