Farmers In The Third World Need This Information!!

I love the way you describe your knowledge. A friend of mine sent me your free e-booklets. Are they translated into any other languages? I ask because you have no idea how behind third world countries are in this matter. From my experience, some of these farmers consider compost to be drippings from chicken farms.


What is your opinion?

Much More Than Meets The Eye

Hi Sonia,

Thank you so much for your comments. Providing our tribe members with a beneficial product, such as the e-booklets, is one of the reasons I'm here.

Currently, these booklets are not translated into any other languages. Do you think they should be? Any language in particular?

At times, it appears that the world has been "set-up" in such a way as to keep third world countries "in the dark". There are strong corporate interests in this world that gain a lot financially by convincing these same farmers that the only way to succeed in agri-business is to purchase fertilizers, pesticides, and Genetically-Modified seeds. In reality, that's the farthest thing from the truth.

Thank goodness the Internet is changing that...and changing that fast! These farmers, actually all farmers for that matter, need independence from these corporate giants. Composting and producing one's own soil fertility is one step in loosening the grips of these fear mongers. This food system of ours is so much more than meets the eye...do you agree?

You sound like you have experience working with farmers in the third world, is that true? If so, I'd love to hear more...and possibly see some pictures.

Peace, Love, and Happy Composting!

Dave
