As gardeners working with the unique ecology in our own gardens, we find ourselves always running "experiments" to better understand how it is working and how what we have learned from others can be best applied in our situation. Seeing the garden as a "living lab" and using "bucket science" is great step to becoming a better gardener. No matter how much existing knowledge and experience you have, there is always room to learn more!
In the bigger picture, there is much we know but also so much we don't know about how to be most successful at growing quality, nutrient-rich food in eco-friendly ways in any particular situation. This is way beyond the capacity of any one gardener. So we have joined with others to collaboratively look at some of the big questions, which can be summarised in the question: "What determines the quailty of the food we grow and what are the best practical ways to acheive quality food?"
Today we can draw upon the work of some of the best gardeners, farmers & scientists over the last 200 years, such as Claude Monet (1840-1926), who worked with an ecological approach.
When we combine this with modern technology, which enables us to “look into” the microscopic aspects of the world of soil life and the biology, chemistry, bio-chemistry and physics processes of the soil, plants & food we produce, it opens up incredible new frontiers and potentials to improve our ability to create an abundance of quality, nutrient-rich food for all on the Earth.
1. Investigating the most efficient & effective ways to create soil humus
2. Contributing to the calibration of the Bionutrient Meter
3. Breeding Methods to create more robust plants that have the potential to provide significant increases in food quality.
An opportunity for scientists and experienced gardeners to work together to acheive practical outcomes that can be shared widely
Walking in the footsteps of those who pioneered the ecology-focused approach toward growing food, we invite you to join with us in collaboratively conducting ongoing research in critical areas that can improve our ability to create an abundance of quality, nutrient-rich food for everyone living on the Earth.
