One Path to Veganic Permaculture

Veganic permaculturalist Helen Athlowe talks about 'conservation farming' in this clip filmed for a permaculture site several years ago featuring land in Montana. She moved on from there to BC, Canada to pursue an interest in forest gardening. Today she consults for other farmers and is sharing the vegan organic message in the USA and Canada, and her veganic practises know-how in various ways.

What is veganic agriculture?

Also called stock-free farming, vegan-organics is a system which avoids all artificial chemical products (synthetic fertiliser, pesticides, growth regulators), genetically modified organisms, animal manures and slaughterhouse by-products (blood, fish meal, bone meal, etc).

DIVA employs the word 'veganiculture' to reflect the integration of vegan-organics, permaculture techniques free of domestic animals, and the cross-cultural adoption of veganism as a dietary and lifestyle choice where possible around the world.
