There are a multitude of ways to put veganic principles into action. Veganic agriculture is not a specific technique, but rather a set of principles that guide the way we farm and garden. Veganic agriculture is fully compatible with existing approaches to ecological agriculture, including forest gardening, permaculture and container gardening. There are also approaches to agriculture that already tend to be veganic or quite close to it, including biointensive, the Ruth Stout technique, and Shumei natural agriculture.
Chipped Branch Wood is a fertility system using small branches of deciduous trees to bring nutrients to the soil. Byproducts of the forestry industry can be used to create stable humus and living soil on agricultural lands.
Many people don’t have access to a garden either because they live in an apartment or have contaminated soil. Growing veganic food in a container allows people to grow fresh local food in any location.
Forest gardening takes an ecosystem approach to growing food, by integrating fruit and nut trees with shrubs, herbs, roots, vegetables, fungi, and supporting fertility plants. Requiring an initial investment of time and energy, forest gardening is a long term, sustainable and low maintenance system that is well suited to those who have access to an area of land over a long period of time.> continue
We are in Victoriaville, a small town in Quebec Province, Canada. It’s February 28th 2006, Manfred Wenz just arrived from Germany to share his experience of different sustainable and regenerative farming practices. Four days of talk and slides with 180 people listening and thinking. From conventional farming he went on to direct sowing, without fertilizer for the last 30 years!
