September 16, 2015, www.regenerationinternational.org | “Ireland leads the way in developing a national strategy that allows for sustainable agricultural intensification while, at the same time, mitigating greenhouse gas emissions, according to Aidan O’Driscoll, Secretary General of the Department of Agriculture. ‘Last October saw the EU make a landmark decision in adopting many of these principles,’ he said.”

Pope Francis Slams GMOs and Pesticides for Environmental and Social Damage

June 16, 2015, sustainablepulse.com | “On the subject of GMOs Pope Francis states; ‘It is difficult to give an overall judgment on the development of genetically modified organisms (GMO), plant or animal, for medical purposes or in agriculture, since they can be very different and require different considerations.  Although we do not have definitive evidence about the damage that transgenic cereals could cause to humans, and in some regions their use has produced economic growth that has helped solve some problems, there are significant problems that should not be minimized.”

Organic vegetable garden at Amrita University

February 16, 2015, www.amritapuri.org | “Encouraged by Amma’s message that everyone should be able to eat vegetables grown organically at least once in a week, the college students at Amrita University’s Amritapuri campus have started an organic vegetable garden using natural methods of cultivation. The garden is flourishing with the growth of colorful, delicious produce, including spinach, okra, tomatoes, tapioca, green chilies, cauliflower, pumpkins, and bananas. The students take turns coming every day to water and tend to the plants, with Wednesdays set aside for all the students to work together.”

Robert BrothersGoodNews FortheEarth “Encouraged by Amma’s emphasis on the importance of growing and eating organic produce, students at the Amritapuri campus of Amrita University have started an organic vegetable garden. Recently, a few students asked Amma how to address a consistent problem they faced – the birds in the nearby area had taken to eating the tomatoes even before they were plucked. Amma replied, “It’s alright; let the birds also benefit from the garden. In fact, we should be giving them the tomatoes first. Aren’t they also a part of the nature we are trying to reconnect with?”

The students take turns every day to water and tend to the plants and Wednesdays are set aside for all the students to come and work together. With their continued determination and enthusiasm, the students plan to expand the garden to accommodate a larger variety of fresh produce and to accomplish their long-term goal of making the Amritapuri campus 100% organic.”

Regenerative Ranching in North Dakota

Dec 11, 2014, www.youtube.com | “Outside Bismarck, ND is a ranch that exemplifies a quiet revolution in commercial agriculture. While more and more consumers learn about the overwhelming benefits of eating healthfully (preferably local, organic food), a growing number of farmers and ranchers are weaning themselves from the grip of a small cartel of extremely powerful chemical “pharming” corporations. They are returning to a style of farming that had always existed before. Gabe & Paul Brown are a father and son who are not shy about showing off their beautiful land and visibly happy livestock. They practice what they call “Regenerative Farming” – a set of practices that encourage biodiversity and the natural enrichment of untilled soils.”

An example of Regenerative Farming & Ranching to mitigate climate change: All no-till, with animals grazing on the cover crops and crop residues = less C02 into the atmosphere. No pesticides, fertilizers, or fungicides, since 1993.
