Combining The Best Of The New With The Best Of The Old
Mike McCosker from NSW Australia with a 3000 acre farm has developed a new sustainable system of agriculture and horticulture known as Biological Farming. It combines new technologies with old agricultural practices that have withstood the test of time! This has resulted in a chemical-free farming practices that produce food that not only tastes good, but is good for you. This is because the food contains all the minerals, vitamins and other goodies that our bodies need to be healthy.
Farming methods will change with such things as high-tech mechanical weed removal without harming the crop that will replace spraying poisonous herbicides.
Recent farming practices have depleted many trace minerals from our soils. These can easily be replaced with the use of finely grounds rock of volcanic origin. The effect this has on the soil is quite remarkable. In fact, this can turn a “dead soil” into a “living soil” almost overnight. As a result, the natural soil microbes return, as do earth worms which are so important as they digest organic matter. This organic matter over a period of time creates humus, the substance that makes soils fertile and stops nutrients from being washed out of the soils and into our waterways.
Likewise, humus can be replaced at the time of seeding. The source of this comes from “brown coal” which is actually fossilized organic matter. It can be made through a very simple and rapid process of grinding the coal,adding water and microbes. Within a few days the coal is converted into a humus concentrate that can then be dried, pelleted and distributed to farmers and gardeners.
There are also revolutionary practices that can change a whole ecology from a desert into a productive landscape within a few short years. We recommend viewing the following documentary to witness the effectiveness of this process. This system will also include cleaning up the oceans and re-establishing natural areas of forests, water-ways and marshlands. Read more HERE.
