Hi, Joanna! I'm trying this online forum and am happy to participate. I left a comment for Dasha about what we can do to take the project to the next level, get more people in the mainstream to hear about the abundance of local and regional materials and start working with them! I'm glad you are pushing on with the work. You have been at this for so many years. Great going! I hope things really take off. Talk soon...
Hi Joanna, I just spread all my 20 cubic meters of compost on the plot. It took over a month longer than what I have expected for the composting process to be finished. Hopefully I can starting growing on the plot and compare the results of different growing medium on the plants. Talk to you later. Paul
Thanks for your news! Yes, hopefully you are still early enough into the growing season.
The e-mail inviting people was sent a little bit earlier than planned, and I'm wondering if you could set up a forum topic and group based on your needs, as well as with describe your project on a blog. We hope to have some scientists on board, who can also answer questions here and everybody can benefit from that.
Thank you very much! I will promise to update with anything worth sharing. Unfortunately, at the present moment, I am not connected to any individuals or communities in Denmark who are aware of and/or utilize stonedust or other means of remineralization.
Personally, I have rather recently got my attention to this website and a book by john hamaker and Julius henzel, and even though I am already convinced that this issue is easily one of the most crucially important matters of the world, I do not know that much about it yet, and really am just in the proces of educating my self starting at the basics.
But I am certain that other people here in Denmark are focused on this subject, so I hope to get connected to some here in Denmark with practical experience of the remineralization of the soil and then I will be able to share what i know.
Thank you for adding me to the group. I'm just now taking baby steps from professional life back to taking care of the family farm. Therefore, I am just now educating myself on farming. Am trying to get the family farm back to a sustainable, organic mode and am learning about soils. In the process I just came across remineralize. I would like to join an India group, and provide it the support I can.
I would welcome you to start the group! I had sent a note to a volunteer to start it, but I would be very happy if you started it. Just find a nice map of India, or your region if you want to stay more local and then make the title appropriate if it is local. India is so big! And then invite me… :-)
For the photo to upload it could be a map or just a great photo of India!
