By now, most of you know that I am seriously into Earth changes and there are many ways you can make your future healthier. I have some tips to help you stay healthy wherever you live – urban or rural.
…from ashes to ashes … the Earth naturally recycles EVERYTHING. NOTHING goes to waste on our magnificent planet.
From amebas to insects to mammals, humans are merely one tiny part of a plethora of species living on Earth, and when you study the other “inhabitants” on our planet, you will learn that NONE of them wastes anything.
Everything from a leaf to the carcasses of animals goes back into the Earth, restoring nutrients and minerals into the soil, decomposing and reseeding to create compost. Even forest fires compost amid the Cycle of Life.
Somewhere along our journey, humans have forgotten how to return to the Earth what we have taken away. So right at this moment – start putting your waste back into the Earth’s natural cycles, and compost.
It’s easy to compost no matter where you live, and composting can replace using chemical fertilizers.
It is easy to compost in the country. You can pick a spot away from your house or barn so the critters will focus on the compost instead of your “house.”
In the country, you don’t have to worry about compost bins or plastic containers and the wild animals, insects, snakes, and birds will participate in the composting process.
Allow the critters access to your organic food and grass waste because they will help decompose them and reseed them. Notice how many butterflies and bees a compost pile attracts, and encourage these pollinators into your garden.
If you live in an urban area, composting is a little trickier because of the lack of open space. Composting can attract raccoons, possums, and skunks. This has a tendency to freak out city-dwellers, and at the end of the day, these wild little guys get run over and killed.
So building or purchasing a composter with a lid is recommended.
Be picky when you design or buy a composter for your backyard because you want to be able to turn your compost at least once a week. This will accelerate decomposition, and you can begin filling your flower beds or patchy bald spots in the grass sooner than later.
Throw It On The Lawn
Whether you live in the country or in a city loft, shred or cut your fruits and vegetable waste into small pieces and throw them on your lawn or on any open spaces. It doesn’t matter if you mow over them or not – their seeds and fibers will recycle, and they will participate in building a healthy root system.
If you live in a downtown urban flat, composting is a great way to get to know your neighbors because you can start a garden and compost program on the top of your building or on your terrace. Again, you must have a container for your kitchen waste, and a place to take your compost when it’s ready to use.
Inner-city composting is really important, though. When programs like this are started in an apartment building community, people can actually start growing their own fruits and vegetables and recycle their waste at the same time. People get to know one another, and before you know it, you have access to organic foods, you are saving money, and you actually are giving something back to the environment.
Teaching The Kids
Teaching kids to compost has HUGE positive outcomes. Just the act of composting teaches children about the Cycles of Nature. It teaches the differences between organic foods and manufactured, fake foods, like GMOS. Composting gives children something to do besides texting or watching TV. Composting creates a sense of accomplishment, gets the kids outside, and is cheap entertainment.
Our next generation is facing a manmade food crisis, and when they learn that this crisis really isn’t a crisis at all, the solutions will be right in front of these future leaders.
Composting is awesome – if you don’t think so, then ask yourself why not?
