It's very important now to find hope, and there are heroes all over the place, I've found, people doing great things for both the present and the future, and yet you rarely hear of them. New Zealander Peter Proctor and his wife are such Heroes, quietly creating a revolution with biodymanic agriculture. As we face the consequences of big business farming and an unsustainable future, here is another movie that is freely available, and very important.
What they have to say:
"What does an environmentally friendly biodynamic food system actually look like? Here's a blueprint for a post-industrial future. The outcome of the battle for agricultural control in India may just dictate the future of the earth. Our existence on this planet is precarious. Desertification, water scarcity, toxic cocktails of agricultural chemicals pervading our food chains, ocean ecosystem collapse, gmo, soil erosion and massive loss of soil fertility. Our ecosystems ore overwhelmed. Humanity's increasing demands are exceeding the Earth's carrying capacity.
Modern agriculture causes topsoil to be eroded at 3 million tons per hour. (that’s 26 billion tons a year)- Human mass is replacing biomass and other species. The carrying capacity of the earth is almost spent. The mantra of free trade has failed the world’s poor. There is a better way.
Biodynamic agriculture may be the only answer we have left."
