The Violets in the Mountains Break the Rocks – Kosmologym’s Remineralization Art Installation

This is a reprint of an article originally published by Kosmologym (http://www.kosmologym.com/dirtball.html) We previously reported on Walker Tufts’ plans to create an art installation that illustrates the concept of remineralization for the Franconia Sculpture Park in Shafer, MN. The installation has been completed.   Dirtball is an invitation to a game that is always going on beneath our feet. The court invites you to join this soil making game along with birds, bugs, plants, minerals and weather. The prairie plants in the key garden below the purple martin house reach deep into the ground and draw minerals to the surface. The purple ...

Tribute to Remineralization Pioneer Cameron Thomson of the Seer Centre (1947-2019)

“The early history of soil remineralization in Scotland was the result of the vision and commitment of Cameron and Moira Thomson of the Sustainable Ecological Earth Regeneration (SEER) Centre just outside Pitlochry in Highland Perthshire. These remarkable people championed the issue to the point where it is gradually gaining mainstream interest. This reflects growing interest in the protection of soils as a fundamental resource of any sustainable society, the clear relationship between soils and the wider environment and the relationship between soils, the foods they grow and human health; of fundamental importance as Scotland increasingly focuses ...

Love Your Neighbor: Texas philanthropist makes remineralization part of his Christian mission

‘Love your neighbor as yourself’ is not only the Second Great Commandment as cited by Jesus Christ in the New Testament, but it’s the mantra by which David Munson operates — both when he’s booking guests on his Dallas-Fort Worth-area TV show, as well as when he advocates on behalf of remineralization to politicians. “There’s a fight between good and evil going on in this world,” he says. “You can either be on the good side or the bad side. You can either be working to make the world a better place, or you could be pulling it down and mining it and just living for immediate pleasure.” As for his digital program (available on the ...

Greg Watson to Deliver 39th Annual Schumacher Lecture

“One of the most important things humans can do as constructive passengers aboard Spaceship Earth is to help restore the health of our planet’s soils and climate." --Greg Watson   An urgent question we must answer is: what effective action we can take in response to climate change? The 39th Annual Schumacher Lectures will work toward answering this question under the title and theme "Actionable Responses to Climate Change." RTE Board Director Greg Watson (alongside the other Schumacher Lecturer, Sallie Calhoun) will bring his realistic--but optimistic--vision of climate action to the 39th Annual Schumacher Lectures. Watson is ...

Survey Says: Nutrient Levels Vary Greatly In Bionutrient’s First Annual Report

The Bionutrient Food Association (BFA) has recently found that the same crops grown under different conditions offer wide variations in nutrient levels, which should be of major interest to consumers. In fact, antioxidant, polyphenol and mineral levels in carrots and spinach appear to vary significantly from sources such as farms, farmers markets and stores, researchers concluded in BFA’s first annual report on food supply nutrient variation, released earlier this year. “We discovered a range of variation in mineral nutrient levels between 400 to 1,800 per cent, depending on the mineral assayed,” says the association on its website ...

Planting a Trillion Trees to Save Earth? Remineralization Can Help

Reforesting the Earth with a trillion trees may be the best way to fight climate change, and remineralizing the Earth with crushed rock dust is perhaps the best way to ensure those trees take root, grow and prosper. A recent study from scientists with Crowther Lab in Switzerland found 223 million acres (900 million hectares) of global tree restoration is the most effective climate change solution, as those trees (about a trillion) would store about 205 billion tons (186 tonnes) of carbon, or roughly two thirds of the carbon emitted since the Industrial Revolution. Unfortunately, decades of poor agricultural practices, desertification and simple ...
