@Regrann from @vaccines_are_depopulation - I’m getting real tired of #vegans saying that only animals are factory farm raised, and only animals have a consciousness. (GMO hybrid fruits or veggies with bar codes you buy at the store, causes cancer just as much as factory farmed meat. You stop eating proccessed meat, to pick up proccessed produce. Bunch of hypocrites who make no sense and just want to be on the band wagan, yall not souly eating from wild and seed baring or grass feed.) Plants are being factory farmed too and are just as sentient. There are MANY things wrong with this! No soil and no bacteria/microbes means there are no shikimate pathways. This pathway is only derived from bacteria, and it allows the plants to make certain amino acids essential for life. We are literally losing HALF of the essential amino acids due to factory farms and #glyphosate Plants grown in labs have no nutrients, vitamins, minerals, amino acids...they are dead nutritionally. And how do you really think it’s ok or makes sense that a technology company would be making food?!?!! Have we seriously let chemical and tech companies take over our food system?! Do #vegan people really not see anything wrong with this?! #mindblown at the ridiculous claims that #plants are #healthier across the board because that isn’t true. At all. #plantlivesmatter #alllifematters #growyourown #growfood #itseasy #factoryfarming #eathealthy #goorganic #organiconly #vegandeception #veganagenda #agenda21 #agenda2030 #health #wellness #natural #integrativehealth #balance #savethesoil #restoretopsoil

Our @kickstarter campaign marks the start of a grassroots effort to drive funding to move our climate-benefiting fashion mission forward.

We are raising funds to start the production of our new consciously-made leather handbags and small leather goods. Funds will be used for tanning, manufacturing, and marketing of our leather line.

Pledges start as little as $5 all the way up to $565. Every little bit helps and each dollar sends a message that the #farmtofashionrevolution is changing the fashion industry!

Join us today. Link in bio.

There are so many benefits to no-till farming, but reducing soil erosion and helping Mother Nature renew the soil are the top reasons our growers made the switch. It’s imperative that we take a more #sustainable approach to feeding families. #Makeitgrain #Notillfarming #notill #sustainablefarming #savethesoil #soilhealth #healthysoil #Regenerativefarming #Regenerative #Thankafarmer #Familyfarms #ShepherdsGrain #PNWfarming #PNWfarms

From nitrogen (urine) >>> carbon (cardboard). Taking a quiz about composting.
Love these afternoons in the gardens, learning so much about urban farming at the Get Down Get Dirty course of @cityplot.

Designating and creating a layout of pathways through your plot is better done sooner than later. Soil compaction can be a major problem for root growth and water percolation. Walkways reduce soil disturbance, keep weeds at bay in the path, prevents trampling of desirable creatures, and allows for easy accessibility to all your crops #foodforest #trailbuilding #buildapath #accessibility #allspeciesmatter #savethesoil #sustainableharvest #fromtheland #fortheland #notools

The choice to be Stewards of humanity and the earth.
Governing love and recognizing how delicate all life is. Restoring equilibrium and balance to the soil, the minerals, the waters, the air. Elevating our understanding of technology and creating in ways that are conducive to our evolution.
Loving each other in true embrace and knowledge of why we’re here.
Loving beyond labels, beyond judgement, beyond identities, beyond walls, beyond wanting to prove you’re right over someone, beyond all that tries to separate us and make us forget. Loving with innocence as children.

***Look what we did?***
We’re getting tumblers made for our upcoming #drinkbeersavefarms party, cuz who wants to drink out of plastic?
Head to brownpapertickets.com to get your tickets for our 3rd Annual Drink Beer, Save Farms! Summer Concert with The Ken Peltier Band, coming up Saturday, June 2nd in Palmer. #becausefarms #savethesoil

Post-yoga bubbles and a really, really good book! Yay :) #kisstheground #savethesoil #blacksheepyoga

"The ground, otherwise known as the soil, is our home. No matter where we go, or how far we venture, or how long we live, we will always return home."

Excited to finally have time to read this book! 🌱

Today we planted some clover as a cover crop in between our rows ☘️☘️ We did this all by hand, using hand tools to clear the weeds and accomplishing our task with hard work. Even though this is more labor, it's really important for Kevin and I that we take care and preserve our soil as much as possible. So we have made the decision to not use a tractor or tiller for our garden. Maybe this sounds crazy to some folks but it's the geologist in me that makes me think differently. ⛰️
Topsoil is something to be fiercely protected. Not only does it make our plants grow big and strong, but this resource takes so long to be created. I'm literally talking hundreds and hundreds of years to create just an inch of topsoil. To me, that does not sound like a renewable resource, but more like something we should work hard to save. I know it's not easy to farm #notill but I do believe it's worth the effort, especially if you farm on a small scale like we do. After all when compared to hundreds of years, what's a couple hours of hand weeding on my part.

We’re proud of our growers’ sustainable farming methods. They are true stewards of the land – experimenting with crop rotation and other techniques that will help Mother Nature regenerate the soil! ∙∙∙ #Notill #DirectSeed #SustainableFarming #CropRotation #SoilHealth #Savethesoil #HealthySoil #ShepherdsGrain #Thankafarmer #Makeitgrain #BuyLocal
