Under our feet, is a resource that can change the world, halt climate change, reduce sickness and ensure food security for future generations. There is an urgent need to rejuvenate the soil by turning back the clock and looking at natural sources of food that will nourish the soil rather than degrade it.

Abadiania, Brazil For the last four years I have been spending a few months every year at a healing center in Brazil during the winter and rent a house with a lovely garden. Last year a friend, Walter Schroth, who has an inn called Pousada Caminho Encantado very close by, became an avid remineralizer and has remineralized hundreds of trees. (more…)
Judy Roylance Fairmont, West Virginia An Apple Tree Story Once upon a time, on a farm not too far away and not very long ago, there were five very old apple trees. Sadly, they had no apples. They had not had any apples for many years; no one knows how many. One tree was very tall; one was very wide; three were dwarfs.

Julie Rawson Founder and Manager, Many Hands Organic Farm CSA, Barre, MassachusettsExecutive Director, Northeast Farming Association (NOFA) After success with some small scale testing with Ashfield Stone last year, we applied Suma Minerals this year (2007). I have had over the top harvests of sugar snap peas. Last week we harvested over 200 pounds of peas from about 420 row feet of plants that rose to 8 or 9 feet in height. The leaves on things like chard, beets, flat leaf parsley are stronger and more turgid than I have known them to be. There are many fewer old and ratty looking beet leaves than in the past. The cut flowers have more brightness ...
