George Washington Carver:

• laid out the reason for organic farming 37 years before the man credited with articulating it did so. Organic farming, if practiced universally now, could slow or stop climate change by locking carbon in the soil, keeping it out of the atmosphere.

• envisioned the end of the petroleum industry and anticipated a movement towards replacing all petroleum products (hydrocarbons) with products from plants (carbohydrates).

• promoted an overhaul of standard educational curricula to teaching everyone to know the life around them and how to interact with it for benefit both to us and to all life.

• had a vision of the Spirit speaking through all of nature which, absorbed by enough people, can reconcile all the conflict between religion and science which he considered totally unnecessary.

• saw war as entirely about resources, and scorned it as lack of vision in fixing the world by constantly improving soil so everyone is fed and happy.

• was a genuinely spiritually enlightened soul with a true love for all humanity.

I believe the Great Creator has put ores and oil on this earth to give us a breathing spell. As we exhaust them, we must be prepared to fall back on our farms, which is God’s true storehouse and can never be exhausted. We can learn to synthesize materials for every human need from the things that grow.
—  George Washington Carver

Strange downpour, hailstorm expected in April: Met Office

ISLAMABAD: The Met Office has cautioned of strange downpours, hailstorms and solid winds all through April.

“This overwhelming successive wet spell of downpours connected with hailstorm and solid winds is liable to hit the agriculturists. The instability of climate in reaping and sifting season of wheat may cause misfortunes to them,” Dr Ghulam Rasul, the boss meteorologist at the Pakistan Meteorological Department, told Dawn.

While reaping wheat in southern parts of the nation, for example, Sindh has very nearly begun, in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa it starts in May, where the products are as yet standing.

It’s not simply wheat that is undermined by the dangerous strengths of nature, solid winds can likewise dispatch mangos. Those that do survive can be harmed by hail strikes influencing the nature of the natural product in southern parts of Punjab, Dr Rasul clarified.

He gave the case of chickpeas and grams that were touchy to try and solid lightning, particularly when in the fertilization stages. “Hail can likewise harm the tobacco leaves puncturing through them and creating the costs to fall,” said the master.

Unverifiable climate in collecting and sifting season may hurt agriculturists

A year ago, a comparative wonder hit agriculturists, which was on a little scale. “We saw dry hailstorm at the edges of Islamabad and somewhat outside. It harmed standing harvests in light of the fact that the hail was greater in size and fell like stones from the sky. Such a strange climate was brought on by mists structuring at a high height in the solidifying zone in the sky.”

Most agriculturists considered the forecasts of great climate important and were generally ready to spare their yield.

“Not long from now as well, we are educating them to get ready for an anomalous climate, which is being brought on by the evolving atmosphere. Like a year ago, we suggest the joined gathering system,” said Dr Rasul, expounding how the ranchers ought to collect and whip trims together.

Conveying an exhortation to both expansive and little scale ranchers, the master disheartened the typical practice of leaving the product lying around in the wake of cutting and afterward packaging it an after few days.

“We likewise prescribe that ranchers whip quickly as opposed to holding up for an alternate six to seven days,” said the master, clarifying how the ordinary cultivating practices did not work when climate examples were unverifiable.

Omar Raja is a data innovation expert furthermore claims a family arrive in Kalar Syedan where he develops wheat. He said that last year he was late to react to the climate notices from the Met Office.

“The hails that tumbled from the sky were the extent of golf balls. We never saw anything like that. It pounded my harvests,” he included.

Is it possible to teach an internet-based permaculture design course, grow your own vegetables and fruit while keeping your chooks and ducks away from them, and to be a Flamenco dancer?

It is is you are April Sampson-Kelly, a permaculture educator who has built an international reputation not only through offering her online permaculture design course but by attending international permaculture conferences in different countries.

Her Flamenco dancing — you will know it is something of an energetic activity if you have ever seen it — and gardening must keep April fit and trim as her teaching keeps her mind active down there on the slopes of Mt Kembla, south of Sydney in The Illawarra.

I made this image in the hill country behind New Plymouth on New Zealand’s North Island on the tours following Australasian Permaculture Convergence 10 in Turangi.

With others, we had come from the exemplary and thickly-vegetated home garden of a couple whose lives span teaching, growing food and surfing the nearby cold water, North Island, breaks not far from New Plymouth.

We reached the rural property where I made this image mid-afternoon. Already home to a young family making their future in the hills from where you can gaze out into the distant, shimmering blue of the Pacific, the house and the land around it was still in development.

While others took life languidly, sitting around on the verandah or slothing about in the hammock, April was busy conversing with someone when I lifted my Canon DSLR, checked the lens aperture, listened for the autofocus to whir… and clicked.

Oh… yes… I should mention that April is a member of Permaculture Australia and participates in its Communciations Team.
