#DidYouKnow Indian farmers traditionally used de-oiled neem cake as a fertilizer and soil amendment in their fields? Neem’s dual activity as a fertilizer and pest repellent made it a favored input. Neem cake is a by-product of oil extraction and represents 70% of the original seed by weight or volume. It is a completely natural and effective alternative for traditional synthetic fertilizers.

Maintaining healthy soil is the bedrock of good farming
Regrann from @growobservatory - #Soil is an essential resource for satisfying human needs, such as #food and feed production, fibre, clean air and #water . Soil is not an infinite resource though. Human activity and changes in #land use lead to increased soil loss, which in turn degrades nature's recycling system and diminishes land productivity, thus decreasing human wellbeing worldwide. - #regrann#soil#soilhealth#Agriculture#farming

“I believe that the in-state cultivation, distribution, prescription, and taxation of medical marijuana is the right decision for Georgia. It would help Georgia families suffering from chronic disease and pain, serve as an additional vital tool in combating the opioid epidemic, and create jobs.” - Stacey Evans
There are over seven billion people in the world today – that’s over seven billion mouths to feed every day. Show your appreciation for the individuals that make this feat possible on Ag Day, March 20th. Learn more: www.agday.org/ #AgDay#NationalAgDay#Agriculture#Food
inspired my by own story,
where natural food + water delivered me from physical disease—
and a not-so-physical trauma—
i sought out to explore ALL the ways in which natural, REAL, whole foods are serving and HEALING people across this globe. 🌍🌍🌍
i started today, down here on the banks of the Nile River (aka the source!)🌴🌴🌴
up & down this continent—& for centuries—this river gives LIFE via clean, running water and lush basins as farmland,
is home to SO MANY of the plants i used to cure myself.
today, i spent all afternoon on these farms.
skipping, barefoot, asking questions, & connecting w/the very thing that moves me:
and that’s that,
the rivers/waters that feed our plants,
the plants/food that feed US
the foundation for good HEALTH.
if you want a picture of WHAT that looks like—what it’s been before GMO’s or microwaves or the word “organic”—
look no further.
what are some of the most natural farmlands you’ve ever seen? im curious!
The @UNFAO (among others) have reported that animal agriculture is responsible for more greenhouse gas emissions than all of the transportation sector combined, and that animal agriculture is the leading driver of deforestation around the world.
As the report from the independent policy institute @ChathamHouse_org explains, without addressing meat consumption, it will be near impossible to keep global warming below the “danger level” of 2 degrees Celsius.
We clearly need to move away from fossil fuels, but we also urgently need a mass global shift away from animal foods.
What will it take for us, as a society, to wake up and make the needed changes before it’s too late?

Yes, this is a photo of us in a bathroom - just before our talk at Northern Kentucky University yesterday! We slacked on taking photos during our visit mostly because it was just so fast-paced and fun. Our presentation was greeted by a thoughtful and engaged audience of students and faculty alike - the Q&A time was particularly enjoyable. Many thanks to the NKU fine arts program for having us. We can't wait to return!
Today, Commissioner Steven Reviczky of the CT Dept of Agriculture, testified before the Conservation and Development subcommittee. I had the opportunity to question him regarding the urgent need for the legislature to ensure that the Ag Sustainability Account, within the Community Investment Act, remains whole and unadulterated. #dairyfarm#cia#milk#gotmilk#cabot#cheese#mccadam#connecticut#farming#ffa#agriculture#agriscience#corn
