There is a whole area of life in nature that is unknown to us and a consciousness that animates every form of life. It is in our power to promote a rich biodiversity and to put awareness in our individual gestures. All home gardens represent large areas of land. The fauna finds refuge in our gardens and nooks and crannies, piles of wood and hollow stems, shelters and melliferous flowers. Why have we never learned about the life of seeds at school? Isn’t it because it is too much of a strong connection with the organic values and that represents a great danger for the control systems in place ?
There is something sad about monotonous and uniform monocultures placed in rows. Nature does not order itself in such a way, but man away from his original nature does. The dominant agricultural system is constantly artificializing nature, undermining biological processes and the capacity of ecosystems to generate bio-abundance. It is a perversion and inversion of the basic principles of the peasant’s dedication: from being a bearer of life, he becomes a sower of death. Everything is being done to push food producers towards increasingly sophisticated and dehumanized techniques, replacing manual labor with machines, replacing organic food with artificial food. Everything is done to encourage the cultivation of sick and weak plants; modern agriculture is dependent on a small number of annual plants. We are under active attack, every day. What they want is submission and complete surrender. Many will feel forced to accept the measures proposed by governments for the sake of believing they have no other option to feed and take care of their families.
Ingesting polluted industrial food is a form of transgression of the biology of the human body, an attack on organic life. It is of importance to no longer eat dead food and to learn to produce an increasing part of our own food, to recreate an edible landscape that nourishes, inspires and protects. These simple actions are a source of health and reconnection. Fruits and vegetables grown naturally, bursting with sunshine life force, eaten soon after their harvest, are full of life energy. The food producers of today and tomorrow are not from the agricultural class and are already, and always have been, the guardians of life. Their temples are places of healing, beauty and organic coherence. We are invited to organize ourselves discreetly in wild and remote landscapes. Autonomous communities that can answeir their own vital needs are less focused on the anguish of lack, which leads to decisions that are not wise. Meeting an increasing part of our vital needs appears to be fundamental. Living for months with fruits and vegetables that will later provide us with the gift of their food is an experience that completely changes our relationship with the way we sustain ourselves.
In nature, there is more self-help than competition, which sometimes happens because of accessibility to light. Plants adopt elaborate behaviours: plants of the same family will politely reduce the growth speed of their roots so as not to disturb their peers. This can be seen as a certain form of altruism. Nature follows its own rhythm and is on time to fulfill its numerous missions. Let us be assistants to these forces in action and offer plants around us the most favorable conditions for their development. Working towards food self-sufficiency is another step towards sovereignty, with a productive garden that regenerates the soil and all local biodiversity, without the need for the soil to be worked or for treatments to be applied. Understanding how the soil works, selecting productive plants that are resistant to disease and reproducible; every day, a few small gestures here and there allow us to move forward gradually. After a few months, things have already taken shape.
Nature sometimes takes time to resolve imbalances. When nature is left undisturbed by man, where every predator has its place and can fulfill its role, there are no problems with slugs or aphids. In the gardens, wild species will be strong and resistant. There are innumerable edible perennial plants or plants able to spread their seeds on their own which, little by little, compose a perpetual vegetable garden. Biennial plants produce their seeds for reproduction in the second year and thus complete their cycle. Perennial plants reseed themselves and remain once implanted. When the soil becomes healthy and alive, well balanced, pests disappear. Weed plants are generally pioneer plants that are meant to establish themselves on degraded soils. Plants communicate in a gaseous way, notably to protect themselves from pathogens. Slugs regulate diseases by eating weak plants first. Green manures are fast-growing plants of various families selected for their soil-improving qualities, for the abundant biomass they produce and for their ability to supplant spontaneous flora. After their growth, they can be mowed and left as a cover for crops: stimulating the microbial life of the soil, improving its structure, protecting against erosion, accelerating humus mineralization, increasing the soil’s capacity to suppress pathogens, enriching it with nitrogen, promoting pollinators, and so on.
The best time to start is now, no matter what the season. Vegetable gardens, greenhouses and dry toilets will be placed in the areas closest to the house. A sunny exposure is favorable for the vegetable garden, with corners of shade that the plants will appreciate. For insects, it is often beneficial to intersperse different aromatic plants in the crops. Some plantations are left to nature, a percentage of the harvest is planted to provide to the living. By placing the seed in contact with human saliva, it will receive a lot of information about where we are in the journey and who we are. It is one more step in awareness with what we are ingesting. A week before transplanting young plants in the garden, we can cut some pieces of their leaves, to simulate their defenses as per imitating an attack of slugs. When the bees start foraging, they tell us that it is a good time to harvest: the fruits and flowers are perfectly ripe. They recognize this by the chromatic range they are able to pick up. Watering deeply, less frequently and in larger quantities, encourages trees to get their roots deep in the ground. Young small zucchini will often be tastier than larger ones. Harvesting often will encourage the plant to produce more. Personally, I mainly opt for a vegetable garden with mucus-free options, especially during spring and summer. In the fall and winter, there will be denser options (especially from the pumpkin and cabbage families). Growing foods that leave behind as little metabolic waste as possible will be a priority (iceberg or miner lettuce, celery, bok choy, tomatoes, zucchini, chives, carrots, beets ; and in moderation, for example, radishes, leeks, chilli, onions and garlic).
I learned to observe the path of the shade of plants during a day and its impact on the surrounding plants. I learned to pay attention to male and female flowers of the zucchini. One summer evening, I heard a strange noise in the garden. It took me a short moment to understand what it was about, it had been many moons since I had the great joy of witnessing the existence of 2 hedgehogs. A few days earlier, I had seen a small snake and a frog crossing the lower part of the garden where I had installed 5 round cultivation mounds. I learned how to harvest tomato and apple seeds, which for the latter I kept in the fridge rolled up in wet cloth for 8 to 12 weeks before putting them in soil with the hope to see a young apple tree soon emerge. I learned how to keep the seeds and pits of certain fruits that I eat and pay attention to them, to collect red bell pepper, melon or watermelon seeds and dry and store them. I started to harvest apricot, peach and nectarine pits, as well as dates. I began to collect the bottom pieces of celery, leeks and small onions so that they could continue to produce a second time. I placed them in water on sticks, floating. When the leaves began to grow, I would plant them in the soil again. .
I learned how to make mounds by marking the surface with wood pieces and then covering with organic matter, nitrogen-rich materials (green garden waste, grass, leftovers from animal products) and carbonaceous material (straw, paper, dried leaves). It is shared that urine can be used in the garden to balance the soil. One can make their own green powder from dehydrated nettle or a nettle or comfrey manure, fermented for several weeks. These liquid manures should be diluted to 10% and used once out of 5 times maximum. In the compost, I incorporate citrus fruits, bones and animal fat (from my cats’ food). Next fall and winter, I will make sure to collect the ashes from burnt wood, which is said to be rich in nutrients such as potash and calcium, and scatter it in the garden, at a rate of one handful per square meter. Since last year, I have planted more than 300 new species of vegetables, fruit trees and small shrubs in the garden to begin to ensure my food survival. In the future, I would like to ensure the food survival of a small community that is already growing in the astral.
The forest garden template has an exceptional set of environmental and societal benefits. It is indeed a sustainable, self-sustaining, resilient, productive system that does not use fossil fuels, water or fertilizer. These types of initiatives help to strengthen food security for communities. Trees are a natural form of retirement savings. Living in nature, multiplying exchanges, symbiotic and cooperative relationships, is what real life is about, a varied and fulfilling existence that allows us to develop our potential as human beings. In the estates and properties, large trees (apple, walnut, chestnut) will be planted every 8 meters, medium fruit trees (apricot, fig, pear) every 6 meters and small fruit trees (hazelnut trees for pruning, peach, plum, pear, elder, red fruit) all around. Some trees fix nitrogen (elagnus, sea buckthorn), some plants make good ground cover (mint, comfrey). Five years after planting, lianas and climbing species can be introduced. The best time to harvest wild plants is often the first weeks of spring, when the leaves are young and tender.
Every climate will see different varieties of trees thrive there. In Belgium and France, here is a non-exhaustive list of fruit trees that can withstand the lower temperatures of winter : Nashi; German (harvest in December) and Japanese medlar, autumn olive tree; Himalayan banana tree; Yuzu lemon tree; feijoa, gingko, Japanese goumi ; kiwai; mandarin tree; satsuma keraji; sea buckthorn; aronia (a sort of cooked blackcurrant); paw paw (a kind of mango-banana). Nuts (walnut, chestnut, macadamia, pecan) can be placed in the most remote areas of the garden; up to 30 kilos of nuts can be harvested per tree. At the foot of weaker trees, it is possible to plant garlic, onion, leek, shallot, chives that will protect them against diseases. Thinking about early and late varieties allows the production of food to be spread out over the whole year.
Industrialists make their plants sterile. F1 seed varieties are presented as “more resistant to disease, more productive and more uniform”. However, we are well aware that what is presented on paper often hides a hidden purpose. There is a big difference between what is advertised and the covert agenda carrying principles of destruction, reduction and extinction of life. Genetically modified crops are not there to increase production and feed more people. Such seeds may be more “profitable” and “practical” in the short term, but all living things will pay a high price. What are we willing to turn a blind eye to out of concern for profitability or simply out of fear? These kinds of decisions lead us right into the abyss. To harvest our own seeds and be self-sufficient, they must be reproducible.
Many associations whose front is dedicated to ecology and environment are part of controlled opposition. They claim to protect seeds and to raise awareness. These “celebrities” of environmentalism can be found on TV and in mainstream and alternative magazines, which are also under control. However, the discourse is purely intellectual, nothing is learned, concepts are being stirred up to be seductive on intellectual grounds, the aim being to anaesthetize and keep the listener, reader or viewer sedated. These associations will claim to be fighting against Monsanto and yet they play in the same class, polarizing the discourse, asking us to choose a side, which is not an answer either – we would still be in their courts. It is difficult to know what is done to the seeds sold in the catalogs of such associations. The principle of mistrust is to be applied in the face of such associations and what they do. It is important not to be seduced by their large catalogs and to obtain seeds from trusted smaller producers whom we know personally.
As I began my apprenticeship, I sometimes decided to leave aside what was shared in a book, because the author’s frequency seemed to be far from organic logic. At the same time, I gained information about the author’s mind control. Similarly, some permaculteurs simulate a false passion and take all their content from more authentic accounts. I frequently had to unsubscribe, receiving a very dark energy in the shared emanation. Some investigations made me understand that in some cases it was conscious controlled opposition (symbolism of inverted elites). These agents weave links with individuals with real potential, vectors of real change, to subtly influence the chessboard. At the same time, these kinds of people do not activate or inspire the people who are following their work; they copy what is real and true, steal ideas and integrate them. We must be careful not to associate ourselves with such agents of the control system because it harvests a part of our most precious asset: the time we are given in this reality to change the course of things.
