This is a soil advocacy slide show I put together as a final assignment for Kiss the Ground's Soil Advocacy Course. It has been a fabulous experience, and despite 3 years of blogging about permaculture related topics since doing my PDC, and you know permaculture is about soil and hydrology and covers much of the same ground...I learned and learned and learned. This is the course to do if you want to do something for the planet and humanity, and just don't feel you have the confidence or know enough... or just don't know where to begin. Finian and Don are so kind and supportive and teach you how to become an effective and inspired activist-advocate and even activist - lobbyist. Towards the final weeks of the course I felt so empowered and positive, I just began to step forward, and it is amazing how things have snowballed. Just do it.
Please let me know if you have any questions, comments or stories to share on gardening, permaculture, regenerative agriculture, food forests, natural gardening, do nothing gardening, observations about pests and diseases, foraging, dealing with and using weeds constructively, composting and going offgrid.
Check out our selection of ecological designs printed on T-shirts, accessories and decor items. The designs are about soil regeneration, indigenous Cape wild flowers, wild African animals and other fauna, as well as bible quotes and geometric patterns.
