‘Farming’

We don’t need bee-killing pesticides to feed the world

For decades, agro-chemical corporations like Bayer have been trying to convince us that we need bee-killing neonicotinoids, and that humans simply can’t feed ourselves without them. A scathing UN report just called that story a complete “myth.” This report on pesticides is a bombshell. Its expert authors say in no uncertain terms: the “myth” that humans need any pesticides — not just neonics — to feed the world is being spread by the “unethical” practices of global corporations who consistently deny the science showing the harms of using these toxins to grow our food. According to the UN experts, science confirms that pesticides are likely making us sick. What’s more, corporations know this but do nothing about it. They… Read More

Solar-Powered Floating Farm Could Produce 20 Tons Of Vegetables Daily

The future of farming is sustainable and not land-based. Article via True Activist The future of agriculture is here with what’s being called a Smart Floating Farm, designed by Forward Thinking Architecture, that could produce 8,000 tons of vegetables annually. The concept was selected as one of the Winners of the Sustainable Entrepreneurship Award 2016 (SEA) in the category of Lifestyle and Culture. The modular floating farms are not a reality yet but the concept behind it is sustainable and highly necessary with the rapidly growing human population and the equally declining access to natural resources. As the move away from traditional farming on land, there have been a number of farm concepts, such as vertical hydroponic gardening, that have… Read More

Overpopulation Lie Debunked: US Farmland Alone Can Feed the Whole World

Daily the mainstream media bombards us with news articles reinforcing the idea that humans are infesting the planet and overpopulating it like parasites sucking it dry of its resources. These bureaucrats have managed to convinced millions of their scheme, when in fact, it’s all a part of their plan to shove the ‘mass death’ agenda down people’s throats all while claiming they are ‘saving the Earth!’ It’s absurd! The truth is if all 7+ billion of us stood shoulder to shoulder and gathered together in the same general location it would fill only the state of Los Angeles. Or if everyone in the world was given a small house and yard and were once again gathered together in the… Read More

Effects Of Pesticides

If it has the suffix –cide in it, then you know it’s meant to kill something. Pesticides are designed to kill insects, fungus, bacteria and other things that feed on crops, are vectors for disease, nuisances, and things that destroy property. Farming is big business and some farming companies are bottom-line driven, in business to make money at any cost. Pesticides and genetically modified organisms are a way to ensure they get the crop yield they demand, no matter how it hurts the environment or the consumers. Two types of pesticides are biological and chemical. Biological pesticides can be developed using fungi, bacteria, and other organically present substances. Some biological pesticides are microorganisms that, without any manipulation, demonstrate natural… Read More

Are Coffee Grounds Good For Plants?

Quinn Dombrowski / Flickr You only need to walk past a coffee shop in any American city to see that our country loves java. With so much coffee being consumed on a daily basis, it’s encouraging to learn that there is a productive use for all those grinds. Next time you make a cup, save your coffee grounds and add them to the soil in your garden. For best results, use organic coffee if you will be consuming the fruits or vegetables you fertilize. In case you didn’t know, approximately 60% of the worlds coffee beans are sprayed with potentially harmful pesticides. Coffee Grounds as a Mulching Agent Coffee’s breakdown materials can be used as a mulching agent, as… Read More

Organic Agriculture is The Key to Solving World Hunger

Researchers have concluded that organic farming can sustainably feed the global population. Through the review of hundreds of published studies, Washington State University researchers have found evidence that organic farming can produce sufficient yields, be profitable for farmers, protect and improve the environment and be safer for farm workers. Written by John Reganold, WSU regents professor of soil science and agroecology and doctoral candidate Jonathan Watcherhe, the review study, “Organic Agriculture in the 21st Century”, is featured as the cover story for February issue of the journal Nature Plants. It is the first study of its kind to analyze 40 years of science that compares organic and conventional agriculture across the four goals of sustainability identified by the National… Read More

Poisoned Agriculture: Depopulation and Human Extinction

There is a global depopulation agenda. The plan is to remove the ‘undesirables’, ‘the poor’ and others deemed to be ‘unworthy’ and a drain on finite resources. However, according to Rosemary Mason, the plan isn’t going to work because an anthropogenic mass extinction is already underway that will affect all life on the planet and both rich and poor alike. Humans will struggle to survive the phenomenon. A new paper by Rosemary A Mason in the Journal of Biological Physics and Chemistry, indicates that a ‘sixth extinction’ is under way (the Holocene extinction, sometimes called the Sixth Extinction, is a name describing the ongoing extinction of species during the present Holocene epoch – since around 10,000 BCE). In her… Read More
