chemicals will no longer be used on our food & soil
farmers will make more money growing organic food over grass seed and Christmas trees
animal agriculture will fade away
non-human animals will be happy and free
our soil will become alive again
our rivers and air will be clean
tools for true health will be taught
the homeless will be housed
the hungry will be fed
workers will have a living wage
basic health care and education will be a right and free
whole plant foods, nature’s best medicine, will be maximized
medications will be minimized
compassion & joy over fear, anger and greed
sharing over hoarding
present over past
union over separation
The powers that be wish to keep us disconnected, distracted, confused & fearful of one another, pointing fingers at those unknown from afar.
We are better
Our destiny is a greatness not yet known
Love in the end wins
Liberation is the goal
Every moment there is a choice to be present, to learn, to listen, to let go and transform
Then to share our gifts with the world
This is why we are here
— Neem Karoli Baba
Will Bonsall is my new hero, and I say that without exaggeration. Check out the short video clip at the top of the Links section below to see half of the reason why.The other half of the reason take a bit longer to explain – hence this full-length podcast episode.Will is the visionary gardener whose half-century of experimentation and iconoclasm can help us save human civilization from collapse. His method, which he refers to as “gardening without borders,” takes into account all the inputs and outputs of a garden or farm, in contrast to the usual methods of conventional, organic, and permaculture production.
In essence, veganic farms are complex systems where native animals, birds and insects are not driven away, but are welcome to co-habitate.
“Ian Tolhurst, a long-time veganic farmer, explains how he uses the fertility of his own soil through a systemic approach to farming. This means that he does not need to rely on external inputs, whether they are synthetic or animal. Indeed, many have arrived at veganic farming from a concern with sustainability, and when framed politically, autonomy.”
