SEER Centre Featured in Star & Furrow

SEER Centre Featured in Star & Furrow

seer_centre_front.jpgIn "Sustainable Ecological Earth Regeneration with Rockdust", Moira Thompson traces the inspirational history of the SEER Centre from its humble and ambitious beginnings to its current state as a recognized Land Trust and purveyor of rockdust.

Moira details some of the SEER Centre's earliest experiments in remineralization and the results are exciting! Mineral and trace element rich rockdust, "quarried from 420 million year old Scottish volcanic rock", works in conjunction with both the soil and its inhabitants to consistently provide delicious, nutrient-dense organic produce.

Remineralization as a tool in climate stabilization cannot be underestimated, as Moira points out in this Star & Furrow article. Graphs and images illustrate where we are now in Earth's glacial cycle. READ MORE

The conference opened with keynote speaker Dr. Arden Andersen. Both a medical doctor and a world leader in sustainable agriculture, Dr. Andersen believes that health begins with healthy soil and is helping to lead an agricultural revolution that will improve our bodily health and the health of the environment by restoring real nutritional content to our food. Dr. Andersen is a key inspiration and proponent of remineralization and the Real Food Campaign.

Dan Kittredge in his workshop covered Nutrient Dense Crop Production and David Yarrow spoke on the Importance of Minerals, Trace Elements and Microbes for Crops and Health. RTE generated much interest as an exhibitor, offering information about Remineralize the Earth and its project, the Real Food Campaign.

My husband John and I couldn't be happier with our brand-new garden this year! It's not very big, but it supplies all the produce that we can possibly use. The vegetables are amazing and we give away basketfuls each week.

Lyons, Wisconsin

Six years ago, 2001, I started gardening for the sake of improving my ailing health. I was determined to garden organically for the sake of food purity. Setting out with little knowledge and almost zero experience I had two very disappointing years of only fair yield and relentless insect attack.

Disillusioned, I then read up on some organic pest control approaches. Armed with a little non-toxic ammo I achieved less damaged produce. However it cost extra money and time and did not improve yield.
