Next Destination(s): Travelling in Europe and I am contemplating revisiting Russia, where I used to live and work many years ago!

Update Spring 2019: Hello Friends… In my picture, you can see I'm holding a gardening tool called a 'mattock'. This versatile tool is the best pal of all leathery-faced ‘campesinos’ in Latin America… it has helped me to create a hugelkultur or two… The other picture shows the gravestone of the great humanitarian Robert Hart, upon which is written, ‘Love is All’… some of my thoughts about life I have made an effort to write down within my website: forestgardeners.weebly.com … I also try to describe, somewhat, my years of international travelling and volunteering… So I will not elaborate too much here except to say that the title of my website is one of my passions – gardening; in a friendly, conscientious way. Originally inspired by my experiences jobbing around rural France as a teenager, and later by that great humanitarian Robert Hart, with his practical and visionary project mimicking the natural structures of Mother Nature to improve the quality of life of his disabled brother, which led him to author his book, ‘Forest Gardening’… Like the Australian permaculture guru Geoff Lawton, I reckon “all of the world’s ‘problems’ can be solved in a garden.” The world simply would not have any problems if it wasn’t for greed and most of our needs can be met by a garden. Spanning thirty years now, I have gratefully been able to work together with good people and their diverse projects all over the world. There are too many to write about here but some examples would include: i. learning from Ariadne Fern and the others at the ‘Plants For a Future’ project down in Lostwithiel, Cornwall – which is like a giant and very diverse Forest Garden… ii. doing practical research into soil and plant health at SIIT Arboretum Botanical Gardens on Negros Island in the Philippines – an educational initiative working with Universities and schools to promote the value of preserving natural ecosystems… iii. doing similar research work at Gami Seva Sevana in Sri Lanka, which is a working, organic demonstration farm. It’s goal is to help support and re-empower local communities; to aid them in maintaining and esteeming their traditional, rural lives and land use practices. These are efficient, mixed agroforestry practices of Forest Gardening, complimented by small-scale animal husbandry. The local villagers are faced by the challenges of the ‘well-financed’ and propagandised inroads made by destructive corporate mono-cultures… iv. rough-camping out with the ‘Evangelical brothers’ (!) on their ‘back-to-the-land’ project in ‘Ybytyruzu park’ in Paraguay – out in their fields trying to impart my knowledge of ‘Sloping Agricultural Land Technology’ to stop the inevitable erosion and degradation of the soil, which would result from their ‘slash and burn’, clear-cut cultivation methods… the principle is simple: you create permanent terraces using ‘multi-use’, often pioneering and nitrogen-fixing, deep-rooting trees whose roots will provide stability to the terraces and good structure to the soil… above ground, the growing trees provide other services such as a beneficial micro-climate helping other plants to grow. These are thus called ‘nurse trees’, and you can also use tough and deep-rooting vetiver grass depending on the climate and location. You also maintain permanent cover never leaving bare soil exposed to harsh sun and strong rain – either through cut and drop mulch, sometimes from the coppicing and trimming of the terrace trees themselves, or as a living green carpet, such as the many species of clover. As plants and living systems more often than not grow stronger through their mutually beneficial relationships formed through intricate companionship and association with a diverse range of other plants and micro-organisms, this is an informed attitude or blueprint I like to adopt and put to use… increasing diversity plays a key role in establishing a resilient ‘mini’ ecosystem… encouraging healthy co-operation. In Ybytyruzu there were plenty of locally growing trees, such as leucaenas and casuarinas appropriate for terracing, from which to harvest seeds or cuttings… v. planting dozens of trees and creating small, diverse, poly-culture gardens on a highland, Andean hobby-farm in the Colombian countryside – this is a few years on already and the trees and plants are starting to ‘magically’ transform what was once a bare, barren field… vi. my friend and colleague, Wayne were glad to receive a commission to initiate the creation of a ‘Forest Garden’ together, working with the children and teachers at a school in south west Berlin… Some common goals, which unite these international efforts are the preservation of our natural heritage and the reassertion of our role as guardians and co-creators with our earth; as well as offering better examples of good and fair-minded socio-economics and land use practices. Dr. Walter Yellowlees, in delivering his ‘Ill Fares the Land’ speech back in 1978, lamented the poor health suffered by the British population; even by ‘the remaining bold peasantry’ of his rural parish – such as were still living their hard-working, ‘ruddy-faced’ lives out within their fields and this due, precisely, to poor nutrition, not ‘laziness’. Akin to so many other conscientious social critics, he understood why heavy machinery and chemicals, are ‘technologies’ more suited to industrial rather than agricultural purposes. Their unwieldy and indiscriminating nature destroys the natural structure and healthy microbial life within soils; the primary indicators and ‘foundation stones’ of a soils’ fertility. Such ‘industrial pharming’ is thus only capable of producing limited harvests of enfeebled plants, which can no longer fulfil their true role in helping to keep us healthy. And of course, this is not just a question of how this destructive model of industrial agriculture is ‘unfit for purpose’… our earth needs and benefits from our physical and spiritual presence as co-creators, just as we derive essential life-force from being closely grounded with our earth; which is why it is so sad to see so much neglect of barren and empty lands. This is why Walter Yellowlees made, what to me is the key observation in his speech: “How can we restore to our land pride of place to the small, mixed, family farm which conserves and enhances fertility and is the most highly productive unit of all? I do not know the answer to that question, but I am sure that in the present state of the world, a nation such as ours which grows only half its own food and sees more than a million of its men standing idle in the city streets, while thousands of acres stand idle in the countryside, is giving an example not of nationhood but of lunacy.” journeytoforeverorg/farm_library/medtest/medtest_iftl.html … Yellowlees commends the seminal research work of Weston Price, (Nutrition and Physical Degeneration), for its irrefutable, factual documentation of how sound nutrition equates to good health and vice-versa… and so it continues today… how we go about providing for our nutritional needs is essential… This is why I respect the practicality of so many millions of Russians who are, perhaps, providing one of the best blueprints and examples for us to follow in order to find our collective path back to good physical and mental health. This article gives you some good insights… wwwmeetupcom/it-IT/PermacultureGarden/messages/38291132/ … “In 1999, 35 million small family plots produced 90% of Russias potatoes, 77% of vegetables, 87% of fruits, 59% of meat, 49% of milk: way to go, people! And since 1999, it seems things have only gotten better when it comes to small-scale agriculture in Russia… In 2003 the Russian President signed into law a further Private Garden Plot Act enabling Russian citizens to receive free of charge from the state, plots of land in private inheritable ownership. Sizes of the plots differ by region but are between one and three hectares each [1 hectare = 2.2 acres]. Produce grown on these plots is not subject to taxation. A further subsequent law to facilitate the acquisition of land for gardening was passed in June 2006, (according to a footnote in Who We Are by Vladimir Megre, pg. 42). What other country raises so much of their food in such sustainable, organic, and non-GMO modes of production?” Recently, I watched Mike Keegans’ inspirational film, ‘From Vedic Russia With Love: The Restoration of Love to Families’, youtubecom/watch?v=wlq6jgWkqcQandt=1619s … a grass-roots, back-to-the-land movement in Russia; inspired by the ‘Anastasia’, ‘Ringing Cedars’ series of books, written by Vladimir Megre… creating ‘Kin’s Domains’, wherein people can reform a deeper and more authentic connection to our earth. To me, it sounds inspired… there appears to be a continuum of ancient Vedic living, from the ancient Indian Vedic culture. Which ties in with my own discoveries about Agnihotra, and Homa Therapy, which I first started to practice in 2015 after visiting Bhrugu Aranya Ecovillage in Poland. They are incredible rediscoveries and very utilitarian and credible on a purely scientific basis. This contrasts greatly with the Status Quo within my own country, and within Europe in general; discussed in this excellent interview with Mike Keegan and Richard D Hall of ‘RichPlanet TV: Land Of The Image Makers’, youtubecom/watch?v=Z2gvppJmhVA … they debate how ‘mankind is being deliberately kept away from nature and Man himself is being lead into a world of falsehood, materialism and toxic manufactured realities…’ This summary of our manufactured malaise rings true, and those with an inquiring, and social conscience have been speaking out against this aspect of political malfeasance for a long time. Even though our epidemics of ill spiritual and physical health are grave, they are predictably and entirely avoidable… Thus I have great respect for the old wisdom, which is still being nourished by some of the true leaders on our planet such as Oren Lyons and he talks about this 'Leadership Imperative' with much conviction; the idea of thinking ahead seven generations: orionmagazineorg/article/the-leadership-imperative/ …, and then of course there are the ‘really challenging’ teachings, especially for the meat-eating cultures, within the ancient Vedic texts… about how it is wrong and detrimental to our karma to take a life; any life, including that of an animal…! Here is one of my poems: “Wild...” Born to be Wild, we are of the Earth, Yet I well understand how we've given birth, To a system of death, within it life dies, But we give it life, as we give it our lives. What happened to peace, to love for our brother, To love for an Earth we should see as our Mother? When we've distanced ourselves from the soil and the trees, Do we hear the life in the birds and the bees? When we give life to objects, not even alive, Polluters, destroyers, the machines that we drive; The machines that we cherish; the machines in our lives. Or do they drive us - can you not see, That without them our lives would be truly free? We're born into freedom, why make ourselves slaves, To a futile Hell, to help dig our own graves? When we poison our waters, our air and our lands, Then we poison ourselves, and from our own hands! I'd rather see trees, as my living friends, Than drive long roads, in a Mercedes Benz! Yea I know in my heart it's the ignorant few, Who still feel we're “right” to pollute as we do: This Spirit of Power, of Industrial Greed, Of Military Might, and Media Need, In abiding by these we imprison our souls, Great folly and madness is out of control, But there's plenty I know, who are not so bent, On senseless destruction and whose time is spent, In the knowledge that quiet, resides at our door, At Peace with our Mother, turning once more, Her turns are our Soul, our Spirit, our Home... As no slave to man, no slave to his dock, To his senseless laws, or his ticking clock, For my law is Nature, and She says to me, That I have Her Spirit and She makes me Free. This is a North American Indian poem I really like, written by an anonymous author... There was a time, when I saw the world Coyote lives in. I had walked up, with a friend – once upon a time, behind the rocks; the big ones that rise up, mossy-greened, and cradle the forest-shadowed ponds that the ducks and moose love, to seek the slight-sloping, grassy meadow hidden behind them. We half-lay for hours in the tall emerald grass among the ancient trees that towered over the drifting textures of the land. While our elbows supported us we talked of plants, and stones, and the wisdom of moss. Slowly we began, as humans sometimes do, to slip into the wildness of the world. Our language began to slow down, pause and falter. Into silence we drifted and for some reason that only our souls understood that day we flowed with it, not talking. Colours became more vivid and the air began to sparkle. Our breathing and the sounds of the forest took on a luminous quality. And into this silence Coyote ambled, following a game trail that flowed, brown runnel, near our feet. Her tongue lolled out the side of her mouth, and she was laughing that crazy laugh Coyote has, while her eyes spun as she watched the dancing bones that lie under the fabric of the world. Crazy, gambolling Coyote. Third force in Universe. I said under my breath, “Turn your head to the right.” And my friend sat up and said, “What?” And in so doing, lost her chance to see. I, still watching, saw Coyote’s eyes shift out of that crazy, spinning universe and shocked, no, betrayed, by the secrecy of our immersion she flipped straight over and ran, tail between her legs, only some strange kind of dog, up the trail. What I glimpsed through Coyote’s eyes lodged in a part of my brain I did not know I had. I can reach out and touch it sometimes. My eyes begin to spin, and I feel a bit dizzy, and I can see dancing bones under the fabric of the world. I still do not know what the world that Coyote lives in does when no one is watching but I do know it is ancient, far beyond the species lifetime of humans and that next to it our world is only a chip of wood floating on the ocean.

Arriving → 2th June Montreal [Quebec]
Leaving ← 1st September Vancouver [British Columbia]

I'm travelling from Montréal (2nd June) to Vancouver (1st September) in 3 month. At first a friend was in, but it seems, he won't do the trip. Originally he planned to take his flight back from Winnipeg (15th July). I bought everything to hike and enjoy the nature, but I'm open to everything. Would be nice to join a road trip, do couchsurfing or work somewhere. Havn't planned anything yet and am grateful for any response! :)

I arrived in Auckland on March 6th and since then I've been exploring the country on my own (well, with my SC van Vivian ^^). I am currently (May 15th) on the South Island and will stay for several months. I'm interested in photography, mostly landscape and night sky, so if you share that passion (or not, that’s fine too ;) ) how about meeting up to shoot together (or just chat, hike and share experience and tips) ?
