    I’ve been doing animal free gardening for several years and it works? well. Check out the Vegan Organic Network if you’re interested – they have lots of resources about how to improve soil fertility with good composting etc. Love John’s takeaway message of modelling nature as closely as possible.

    Cool …. rock dust …. show? me the experimental data that proves it does something, and how many soils really need it. I’m open minded, in fact even bought some, but skeptical …. show me the facts, show me experiments, show me DATA !

    They’ve been? doing monoculture in Europe for over 1000 years… they must have some terrible soil, unless they amend it.

    So microbes and worms are not animals? Sorry Vegan people, but no matter how hard you try, animals will be used to? make food.

    There is always human manure.
    If someone does not wanna eat animals, I can? understand but not using the waste products….. beyond my grasp, but too each its own.

    your’ ‘holding the coats’ it s an organic goat but the males are slaughtered because they don’t make milk. same with females that? cant make milk anymore, your benefiting from their harm . thats how vegans think. they dont ride horses everybody respects the amish because they are conservative christians if they wer muslims or liberals and did the exact same things they d loos respect. probably something in it for the respecters.

    they think using honey is exploiting the bees. some bees get killed. do no harm unless your a vegetable or a bacteria. reality is sop many people have been abused so much by so many people ( spanking domestic violence rape1 of 5 women so in coming to terns with it people think well if im violent to ? to animals for ex then whos to say where the line is, at animal;s or people or just certain kind of people is arbitrary. inflicting pain is wrong ending sentience is wrong so don’t do it.

    Is there a? resource or link to where you can buy “Rock Dust”? My Compost pile is invaded by many maggots and bugs… It looks nasty. What can I do to prevent that? I also know a lady that adds lime to her compost, what’s that about?

    i think the point of what he is saying is, that in order to achieve the highest level of healthy plants, we need to mimic the natural order of plants relation with the soil, and in nature the earth is made from plants that are borken down by insects and micro organism, and minerals, but there is no way that mountians of cow poop will find it way? somehow into a random space, a little (very little) yes, but not like today, im not thinkong of veganism, i thinking of natures way of doing this.

    I agree with you. Isn’t it impossible? not to use animal? Worms and Insects are animals. Were all part of this earth what so wrong to benefiting from each other?
