The knowledge gained in organic agriculture regarding the fact that 1.) agriculture does not need synthetic chemicals and 2.) the knowledge of how to optimize and supercharge soil health can save our planet and get us out of this CO2 imbalance mess.
Agriculture alone cannot do this. Applying the principles to the marginal lands of the world to supercharge ecology and re-establish large portions of marginal desertified lands as fertile green belts and re-building the worlds forest ecosystems to the vibrancy and massive biology of their potential can rapidly balance CO2 back into solid biologically cycling form. Essentially, organic ag teaches us how to re-green the planet without the use of toxics, but rather through the building up of soil to create a greater and greater mass of biology both in the soil and in the plant and animal life that such rich and vibrant soils can support.

I don't believe in destroying what is here today. I believe in building a future that outperforms and solved inadequacies and failures of present and the past.
My driving intent and focus goes to empower the agrarian reality. I dream of and believe in the need for agrarian renaissance.
Agrarians are those rooted and sustained by the local landscape and community.
I believe that through agrarian success, the world can see a major shift in the human inflicted global ecological effect. We can see a symbiotic future that embraces, feeds on, and promotes ecological and cultural diversity. We can see people, through the natural living of their lives, effecting a rapidly regenerating global environment and reversal of longstanding global desertification.
Since we can, we should. Social engineering? well kind of, yeah. It is intelligent strategic paradigm development. Our civilizational paradigm tends to orient any and all diverse cultures to effect environmental harm/footprint. Therefore, we need to reorient the paradigm to naturally effect regenerative and symbiotic relationships with nature instead.
Agrarian society is in free fall as the paradigm orients cultures and societies around global financial economy with built in rewards and penalties (remember agrarian by definition is place and community oriented).
I believe it is not only possible but crucial to resuscitate and accentuate the infrastructure for global agrarianism and to do it in such a way as to enable renaissance/flowering.
That is my life's work, my passion, and what I live for and would be happy to die for any day of the week. This blog is my rough and in many instances unedited writings on the subject. These are not refined articles. They are a semi-formal journaling to log ideas I find important.
