Quick, Quick its pouring rain.. glad you made it, its raining so hard that there are road closures, and the kiddo’s buses are canceled as well. Shake yourself off and come on in..
I have got a lovely pot of spicy Chia tea on today or perhaps a hot apple cider with a cinnamon stick?
How are you doing today? Its getting so close to Christmas? Are you ready for it? Got your plans made? Still need a stocking stuffer? How about a little package of seeds? I know how excited I get when I get seeds and I expect that others feel the same 🙂
I am waiting for a convention to open up, I am on the email list to get in on the early bird cost fee, I would like to save as much as possible. Its a three day event and I have a feeling its going to be filled with hot topic/cutting edge knowledge in regards to living soils.
The new year is coming and might I make at least one of my own little New Year Predictions!?
I predict that you will be hearing “Regenerative” and “Soil Carbon Capture” along with “Year of the Soil” and a new one even to me..
Now this little video is very tailored for the states but it gets the point across that this is a movement that is up and coming..
(now please don’t think that the five tips are going to be new to us homesteaders or old gardeners, its old hat for most of us.. other then those that are still tilling every year and keeping bare soil gardens)
I have been hearing that word, just slipped in on the main news, seeing it pop up in BBC news and more.. then one of the grass roots groups I follow and work with, posted that one of their main ladies was going to be a speaker at the coming soil event for 2019.
This is the video from their first one in 2017!
You are most likely thinking hmmm.. but I think that we are going to find that this is going to be a HUGE push in the coming while.. it’s of course NOT this simple.. there are many other factors at play but none the less! I will stay on topic..
This is a much longer video but it explains the basic’s of how/why when it comes to carbon capture in the soil
If you have the time to watch this, its worth it! I know that its dry but I really want you to remember that this was done in 2017.. so many of the things he is talking about is our “right here and now”
I had already planned a number of compost posts and one really longer video on compost and soil in the coming year, I knew that I would be sharing a good amount of posts on my yard work. I have a feeling this convention will provide the spring board to a lot more information sharing with my readership 🙂
As we get closer and the outline come together, I will come back and see if there is any questions you guys have that you want to see if I can get answers for on a global scale.
So do you think that climate victory gardens will catch on?
