Be An Agent of Change

We have watched hours of videos that have been incredible. I have listed some of the names of the presenters. Such recognizable names as Dr. J. Mercola, Dr. E. Ingham, Jeffrey Smith, Dr. Huber, Dr. Carman, Dr. D. Suzuki, Paul Stamets, Game Brown, Dr. A. Anderson, Brian Lancaster, and Dr. Z. Bush

These folks and many more are on u-tube, Ted Talks, and Vimeo.

There are full-length movies that have trailers-
Genetic Roulette, Seeds of Death, GMO Global Alert, Symphony of the Soil, The Soil Solution, and Farmers Footprint.

Netflix movie -Generation Earth shared some surprising statistics:
Three million people live above the fourteenth floor in Hong Kong, and some live their entire lives and never touch the ground.
At any given time, there are one million people in planes in the sky.
If you put all the cities with over fifteen million people living in them on an island, it would only be one half the size of Australia and represents one billion people. Interesting statistics in light of the Covid-19.

The belief that if each one of us could take up organic gardening, we could feed the world and reduce greenhouse gases. Right now, peasant farmers feed seventy percent of the world. We could turn around hunger and mainly reduce current modern illnesses with restorative land practices, notwithstanding improving the health of the planet.

“The Agro Rebel” on u-tube features a man in Austria who, for over fifty years, has been practicing permaculture and long before it was vogue. He is just a lover of the land using restorative practices that keep the land productive and, in doing so, creating bounty.

Each of us can start creating some food by starting year-round salad gardening in a sunny window, container gardening on the deck, and if you can plant a small garden. Finding a community garden in your area and begin to learn from the successful gardener without the use of chemical fertilizers and weed sprays.

Create a garden that has as much diversity as possible.

I grew up during a time where it was not cool to be a farmer, and now it is great to watch the resurgence of interest in growing one’s food. This decision limits as much as possible the necessity for big agriculture as we assess our food habits and start to eat in-season and learn again about preparing food that is in rhythm with food availability.

Our health depends on relearning good restorative land practices and supporting our local farmers who understand regenerative principles by shopping with them and creating a network of like-minded individuals.
