I'm giving y'all a lot of material in but it's worth soaking in, especially if you garden, farm, want to, or want to learn about soil.

Enjoy! :D

If you haven't heard of this somewhat undefined movement, you will soon.

This will be the future of most smaller-end cannabis farms in the United States very soon. Basically anyone who is not part of the giant octopus of corporate cash. It is simply not affordable to be anything but organic anymore. :lol:

"Dacha Gardens in Russia
In the workshop I learned that Dr. Leo wrote his doctoral dissertation on the spiritual, cultural, and economic significance of the Russian dacha gardening movement. (A dacha is a small cottage in the country.) I believe his work at the University of Missouri at Columbia has an urgent relevance to the US as debates rage over the ability of people to evolve sustainable “foodsheds.” Agribusiness interests propose that broad-scale industrial agriculture is the only model that can provide reliable, inexpensive food and that the toxicity of inputs, soil depletion and energy inefficiency of the system is acceptable due to a lack of alternatives. Thus far, this view has been backed solidly by the USDA to the tune of billions in agricultural subsidies that underpin this model — financing the destruction of America's soil and food quality, and rewarding industrial agribusiness as the model to succeed.

But millions of home gardeners in Russia disprove all these ideas and offer a model in which people regain central control of their food system in a very direct way, by growing the majority of their food themselves. In a country with corporate farms using 83 percent of the agricultural land, some 35 million families produce more than 50 percent of the country’s food, growing on small plots which are typically some 25 x 35 yards in size. While these plots are not the best agricultural land, they are tended by people who care about the quality of produce, who improve the quality of their soils, and who eat and share what they grow. These dachnik gardeners, as they are called, collectively produce 92 percent of the potatoes grown in Russia, 77 percent of the vegetables, 87 percent of the berries and fruit, 60 percent of the meat, and 49 percent of the milk. —A.J.</div>"

[ quote ] Like this without spaces. That easy. Thanks for the info too, amazing stuff. [ / quote ]

Props to you Fintan for the front page link. People will benefit from this information. It goes back to Korean natural farming, "Biodynamics"--- half cultly, outdated new age stuff, half crucial "new" ways to consider "farming" --- , the permaculture movement, and of course, nature itself.
We have only begun to understand some of the complexities on a scientific level in the last few years.

The proof is in the pudding, as they say, or the actual results these methods are producing.

Great video, I'm a bit of a treehugger, so love the thought of a mother tree.

The most effective change-makers in our society aren’t waiting around for a new president to make their lives better, they’re planting seeds, quite literally, and through the revolutionary act of gardening, they’re rebuilding their communities while growing their own independence.

As new $314M AgTech facility promises Blockchain + AI to track food from seed to shelf, other companies are creating DNA libraries to use CRISPR gene modification to combine kangaroo with "de-extincted" mammoths to produce the "perfect" lab-grown meat. These, according to the technocrats, are the farms of the future -- and understanding the agendas behind them is imperative if you wish to be able to feed your family in the future.
