A Little News and Environment UN Days in September & October 2021

30 September 2021

Information Session for BKs 
 Wednesday 29th September @ 10.30am AEST
with Klig (Yarra Valley) and Jessica & Robert (Leura)

As BKs we know that wasting food means losing our fortune; washing grains of rice down the sink is like washing away diamonds.
For UN International Day of Awareness on Food Loss and Waste Reduction we will hold a workshop for BKs:

Tips on how to store food, recycle leftovers successfully, compost and farm worms.

Bring along your own experiences. 

On Zoom on the day

Tamasin Ramsay's research report on Sustainable Yogic Agriculture has been cited extensively by Janus Bojesen Jensen in a book titled 'Subtle Agroecologies - Farming With the Hidden Half of Nature”.


The entire book is free to download... see Chapter 22.

At home, Tamasin has just started a personal Sustainable Yogic Agriculture practice according to the system of the farmers in India - established and practiced for more than ten years. The SYA practice begins with “seed empowerment” i.e. meditation on the seeds, for ten days. In the photo below Tamasin has separated the seeds - the yogic seeds are in the glass jars with labels and the control seeds are the ones remaining in the packets. She will update us with developments!

Аir pollution is the single greatest environmental risk to human health with with far-reaching impacts owing to its transport over long distances and one of the main avoidable causes of death and disease globally.  Particularly in developing countries, air pollution disproportionately affects women, children and the elderly, especially in low-income populations as they are often exposed to high levels of ambient air pollution and indoor air pollution from cooking and heating with wood fuel and kerosene.

The Green Saint
In connection with COP preparations and the focus of the world on climate change, maybe you would like to revisit an article the late Anthony Strano wrote about the Green Saint of Assisi, St. Francis? Enjoy the article.
Francis learned to be realistic as well as spiritual for he stated: "Start by doing what is necessary, and then do what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible."
