He also meets a Ngunnawal ranger to learn how traditional owners managed Canberra's landscape for thousands of years, and how the same techniques are still being passed down and used today. Meanwhile, Angus is visiting CSIRO's Black Mountain Laboratories to discover how the scientists are looking below the ground to find ways to improve crop production, as well as how their groundbreaking research can help gardeners at home.
