Real Billions and Real Trillions

While I was searching for images of life in the soil, I came upon the following on Sweet Bay Farm’s website (see above). They’re working to restore soils depleted by decades of monoculture—the continual cultivation of a single crop, in this case tobacco—so this picture of several earthworm tunnels in a clod does not yet suggest anything teeming.

A Conversation With Jeff Moyer

Jeff, before we begin, I want to thank you for the images of the jars of water, one with soil rich in organic matter and one with the dissolved murkiness of soil that is deficient in carbon. Ever since you showed those images during a public talk a decade or so ago, the comparison has stuck with me.

Colorado Soil Systems Receives 0% Loan

In 2016, Colorado Soil Systems received a $15,000 zero-percent loan from the 2Forks Club. This loan allowed us to establish a fruit-tree rootstock nursery to preserve indigenous trees that grow in the valley; purchase irrigation supplies, fencing, and soil amendments; and embark on a vegetable- and flower- production operation.

    This is really very interesting. I live in California and have wanted to start a goat dairy and a cheese shop but have not had the capital. I will be interested to hear more.
    Meanwhile, I have completed veterinary courses to help me care for my dairy animals, I have been studying cheese, especially artisanal cheeses but all aspects of cheese making and cheese mongering. I work as a cheese monger at a very successful natural foods coop.
    I wonder what’s happening in California concerning slow foods?

    Hi Susan,
    Are you in Sacramento? San Luis Obispo? Quincy? There are only a handful more natural food’s co-ops in California for me to guess from.

    If you are in — or visiting — the Bay Area, you can find out about more local chapter activities here:

    Hi,

    While you work on to improve the genetic quality of goats, how about a change in diet?

    Did you tested feeding of Moringa Oleifera leaves [ green or dried about half kilo daily ] for increase in milk yeild ?
    I am not sure about weather of Vermont permitting cultivation of Moringa on farm but should not be a problem for other areas. With increased out put milk I , using natural diet supplement which could be grown on farm [ weather permitting] may help increase profitability of the farm. Just a thought not sure if it would work in Vermont.

    One of the leading results of extended hours of being underneath the intense burning heat of the
    sun is the growth and development of Cancer.

    This makes it quite beneficial for vitiligo patients as they can pick the right concentration that matches the color they need to successfully camouflage the
    white patches. Moving to some sunny place can be an effective means to get an all round glow.

    It is also supposed to encourage your hypothalamus to “reset” your system’s
    metabolic process making it easier for you to digest and process the foods that you eat.
    And likewise, simply eating Muscle Builder Foods And doing Bodybuilding Workouts won’t add inches to your chest, arms, and shoulders, if you
    aren’t regularly pumping iron. Bones and nails are also strengthened,
    which is an important factor that effects more than your
    appearance.

    But there are also those who are not amenable to this kind of
    treatment such as Dr. Normally students can finish their nursing degree through this program
    within three years, in which the first year will be devoted to
    entry-level nursing course work. Unlike other muscles in your body, your facial exercise
    are connected as skin and bone, forming a cushion for the skin to relax.
