Gilbert KUEPOUO, CameroonMy relation and curiosity to nature is intimately linked to my background. I was born and grew in small farming family in the hilly Fotouni village at the southern edge of the Savannah highlands in the western region of Cameroon. This village covers about 650 square kilometers and consists of granitic and metamorphic rocks locally covered by basaltic lavas. Intuitively, specific plants were harvested on soils deriving from specific rock basement or basaltic lavas. From generations to generations my ancestors relayed on this intuitive knowledge and healthy ecosystem services for livelihood.

Remineralization is a simple vision. Imagine a world filled with brilliant nutritious tasting food, soil jam packed with moisture, plants bursting with mineral health, less carbon in the air and more in the soil where it belongs, healthy animals and of course healthy thriving people. Well don’t imagine, and start believing. This is a reality just by covering the world in rock dust!
Nature has been in my bones since I was born. For the first five years of my life, we lived on a large scale wheat farm in the heart of the Mallee Country, Victoria Australia. This wide open space, dry landscape and remoteness still makes me shiver. It was the place where my dad grew up and learnt from his dad about farming practices and general life teachings. This was my first memory of connecting with mother nature. I used to sit out under our almond trees when I was a toddler and stay there for hours just playing around them .
Dasha Gaian, RussiaI have been interested in environmental as well as food quality issues for a few years and have participated in green projects in Moscow, Russia, while living there. Having recently moved to Brazil, I met Joanna Campe here and was immediately drawn to apply my skills to the development of this wonderful organization, so I have joined the team as a Media Coordinator as well. For now I am bringing the remineralization information to Russian farmers and gardeners remotely, through Internet and volunteers.
Marc Daelemans, Belgium
The year 1987 was a turning point in my life. This was the year when I met the Native American Floyd Westerman, and I changed careers. I began to apply myself to 'engineering of Mother Earth': purification of the earth, the air and especially wastewater and rainwater with plant system.

Jan Simon, Czech Republic
For the last five years a group of friends and I have been building up a 4 hectare organic farm in the north of the Czech Republic. We do everything including the farm work, all building by hand no tractors, no power tools), so it is a slow but a great learning process. We are vegans and keep no domestic animals and use no animal manure except what the wild animals leave.
Niklas Fred, Finland
I'm a 31-year-old wanna-be farmer from Helsinki, Finland. Presently I only garden a small allotment near where I live with my family, but would one day wish to have a real farm of my own. My family consists of my lovely wife, two little rascals aged 3 and 5, and our Spanish ex-stray dog called Elvis.
Timo ter Voort, Holland
Our focus is on nutrient rich food production; we believe in remineralizing soils and crops using minerals from the ocean, based on our own experience and study of Dr. Maynard Murry. We did several tryouts and professional research. We have no experience with other ways of remineralizing soils, such as using rockdust.
Abraham BO Ekajulo, Kenya
Mr. Ekajulo has been devoting his full efforts in Planning, Researching, identification and implementation of sustainable development projects with Revive Community Africa, (RECOAFRICA), a Kenyan based Non-governmental organization that endeavors to develop efforts to transform and diversify the marginalized and the most vulnerable poor communities. He has also extensive management experience of over ten years working with the Coffee Board of Kenya
Jorge Villasenor Garibi, Mexico
I was born in Mexico, and am now 35 years old and living in Guadalajara, Jalisco. I am married and have a wonderful family: my wife Karla and three children Jorge Jr., Rodrigo and Pablo.
We started to do research about five years ago with the purpose of moving Mexican agriculture in a more organic direction. We have concluded that the most important problem we face is the poor mineralization of the land and the excess of synthetic fertilizers, which has degenerated and caused the loss of fertility in Mexican soils. However, this now presents fascinating ground for opportunities.
