“When we’re flying at 40,000 feet and we look down, we see a marvelous amount of innovation in agriculture, environmental restoration, green architecture, in systems design and in renewable energy development,” Dr. John Todd tells Organic Connections. “The news on the ground has never been richer, more diverse or in some respects more global. There probably isn’t a continent on which we don’t have something happening, and that just wasn’t the case 20 years ago.”
If you were to choose a place to plant your dream vegetable garden, it would probably not be in the foothills of the Grampian Mountains in Strathardle, Perthshire, Scotland. The upland site is infertile, acidic and exposed to severe weather. Yet it was exactly here that Cameron and Moira Thomson settled and decided to become self-sufficient by creating their own garden, growing their very own fruits and vegetables.
Organic Connections, a wonderful magazine put out by Natural Vitality, has recently won a design award. The magazine often carries articles on RTE and soil remineralization. The recent July-August issue featured an article with Dr. Arden Andersen titled How We Can Restore Nutritional Content to Our Food. The coming September-October issue will feature RTE Director Dan Kittredge and the Real Food Campaign. For a free subscription, go to Organic Connections.
Much of RTE's sponsorship for 2007-2008 has come through a percentage of profits paid by Natural Vitality through their Natural Revitalization program. To see a video and story about this program, click here.
