Miraculous Abundance: How to Grow More Food than you ever Imagined! – Hands-On Experience

With the Forest Gardener & Wild Nutritionist Shantree Kacera

Take a moment to consider that 50% of Americans were farming in 1880. Now less than 2% of the nation is employed in agriculture.
From another perspective, in 1945, Americans grew 45% of their food in their backyard gardens. Now we grow 0.1% of our food in our backyards.

Growing more food than you ever thought possible on less land than you ever imagined is easily achieved and demonstrated through small-scale, high-yielding, all-organic regenerative gardening methods

First, let us look at what it is NOT:

  • Not a Violent Knowledge Paradigm
  • Not Chemical Fertilizers
  • Not Poisons & Pesticides
  • Not Toxic Monocultures
  • Not Large-Scale Industrial Farms
  • Not Seed Dictatorship
  • Not Globalization
  • Not Corporations

The Living Centre began as a homestead in 1983, which organically transitioned into the educational centre it is today. We intend to sustain ourselves and share how to grow the most nutrient-dense food and medicine possible. Most ecologically, create a regenerative model that can carry us into a post-carbon future—when oil or animal husbandry is not essential to soil fertility.

Today, the centre produces a vast diversity of vegetables, berries, fruit, nuts and herbs using a mix of permaculture, bio-intensive, forest gardening and natural ecological practices. It is a well-established permaculture educational centre and an apothecary clinic.

An Earthship passive greenhouse, a micro-sprouting and mushroom operation, a medicine wheel herb garden and foraging trails create abundance for all. It has also become the research site focusing on how small organic regenerative gardens like ours might be a solution for food sustainability needs.

Just Imagine
1200 kg of delicious organic food, spices, herbal teas and medicine in
120 foraging hours more than you ever thought possible on less land than you can imagine.
