Rewilding and Veganic (Stockfree Organic) Farming – What is it about?
Rewilding is the large-scale restoration of eco systems to the point where nature is allowed to take care of itself. It is amazing how fast nature can recover, when habitats are restored, animals return. Rewilding means a richer healthier environment for us all to live in.
How to free up land for rewilding
The first and easiest thing we can do to free up land for rewilding is to stop industrial animal farming. Animal agriculture uses 80% of all agricultural land and is responsible for deforestation, ocean dead zones, river pollution etc. On earth today 36% of all mammals are human and 60% are farm animals.
What is the most environmentally friendly way for people to feed themselves?
Veganic (Stockfree Organic) Farming aims for a closed system, striving to maintain fertility using the materials available on the farmland such as compost, mulch, chipped branch wood and green manures. This method of farming encourages biodiversity, replacing the need for agricultural chemicals and pesticides. Veganic (Stockfree Organic) Farming comes under many headings which can include: forest gardening, permaculture, horticulture and arable farming.
Veganic food is not only good for the environment it is good for human health as it helps to maintain healthy gut bacteria which is vital for a healthy immune system.
Conventional farms fertilise crops with with slaughter house by-products, chemicals and pesticides, which are detrimental to biodiversity and pollute the soil, rivers and the atmosphere. Food produced may contain chemicals and pesticide residue, which is harmful to human health, contributing to cancers and other health conditions.
Organic farms can use green manures but also fertilise crops by bringing in slaughter house by-products such as manure, fish, blood and bone meal which pollute the surrounding environment causing ocean and river dead zones and the possibility of dangerous pathogens such as E.coli.
Further more, in farms which use animal by-products for fertility, manure may be contaminated with antibiotic resistant bacteria.
Veganic (Stockfree Organic) Farming systems are the best way for industrial countries to feed themselves with healthy nutritious food, while having a minimal impact on the environment.
