Over the years I’ve watched as more and more fertile soil is damaged by so-called progress – and if it’s not famine farms, it’s housing subdivisions that are little more than concrete castles – and there’s no need for it to be so!
I describe monoculture practice as creating “Famine Farms” for bees and wildlife…becoming places of slow starvation for all.
I recall thinking this when first beginning to plant out the permaculture gardens here at Bealtaine Cottage.
As you can see from the place as it looked then, it was bereft of food for anything!
Walking around the gardens of Bealtaine during the Spring and Summer, watching bees forage in the blossom, frogs delight in the ponds and listening to the birds sing out a mighty chorus, makes me think of the dire situation these creatures face in the monoculture world of modern farming.
It forms part of the massive disconnect going right through the core of society.
