Fill in the blank:
Life for Nature
A bit about me:
I moved to Canada a few years ago from Germany.
Having worked there in the car industry wasn't nice all the time.Thanks to God I still could have a few acres to work with my horses (after getting my German Trainer license) and grow a bit of my own stuff.
After beeing to Ontario several times in the early 1980's and then later on in 2000 I decided its time to change something.Finally I moved here.
Now I'm taking care of an 100acre farm, grow gras for hay, veggies and healthy soil.
Isn't the soil the most important thing if you wanna heve
sucess in growing crops keeping animals?
When I first moved here I started with a friend just using
a natural Plantfood he brought over from his great grandfather when they moved from France.
I gave it a try and for sure without any commercial fertilizers my plants were getting healthier as ever, the fruits tasted a lot better and the digestable protein in pasture and hayfeldswent up amazing.
Then I started out mixing my own all natural insectrepellent (a recipe a found in my grandfahters box)
Well so I keep my own simple lifestyle.Any questions? just ask.
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Homgrown beef roast with sweet potatoes
Currently reading:
Willies Tao
Currently listening to:
country music
My latest DIY project:
renovating in the barn to produce my own horse bedding and pellets for the pellet stove

The future of food

I tried to get the documentation "The Future of Food" in different Viedo stores in my area. Either I was told they were not allowed to sell or rent them or they weren't taken off the shelf(in my town through the owner of the grocry store). Finally I got a copy through a friend.
Now what can be done legally to make people aware about the food situation and how unhealthy it is to buy food in big stores?
