The Nature Learning Center's "Nature's Life Cycle Engine". The engine is the driving force that generates life force for the home or farm. Nature works for free all that is needed is putting the elements back together. The Life Cycle Engine (LCE) creates abundance. The LCE feeds into itself for it's own sustainability. The chickens eat the worms, the worms eat the left over food, the excrement from both the chickens and the worms build life giving soil which grows more food for the chickens and the worms. The compost pile receives the abundant left overs/plants/grass/fruits/vegetables that are not consumed that the healthy soil creates. The excrement from the chickens/nitrogen/potassium/phosphate gets mixed into the compost pile to enhance the transformation into soil. The worms are added to the soil to create micro organisms within the soil. The excrement from the vermiculture bin creates a very powerful life force soil that is added to other soil at a rate of 10%. The chard wood from burning such plants like bamboo, (high in calcium) are placed on top of the soil below the plants. For the compost pile, you will need a ratio of 50% green to 50% brown, at least 3 ft by 3 ft to activate, with plenty of air flow, and periodic watering. For the 50% green I like to use grasses/ground cover such as alfalfa, oats, flax, legumes, red clover, buckwheat, Symphytum asperum Comfrey, seaweeds, river algae, acacia leaves/roots. I also add for the green: manure and urine from birds, fish, and mammals such as cows, goats, sheep, and horse. For the 50% brown I use dried plant matter, (no sticks or large pieces of wood or toxic plants). I like using dried leaves from white oak trees,(the oak leaves are also great for the vermiculture bin). I also like using hay or straw or dried grasses and leaf mould from non toxic trees and plants. Humans have separated themselves from the elements of Nature, it is our job as Earth stewards to repair the life force that we have taken out of balance. It's all about restoring the soil/Earth. Life comes from the ground/soil. Most soil is void of life/minerals/microbials necessary to grow food that is complete. For each mineral/element that is missing from our soil, that particular non existent element/mineral/nutrient creates a specific disease in living beings. If all humans concentrate their efforts on creating abundant healthy food soil everywhere all the time, we can restore this planet back to it's original life force giving abundance. One day when the Earth is back in balance again, we wont need to rebuild the soil anymore because the Earth/Nature will take over the job and will maintain itself. The way to be free, healthy, and happy is through abundance of free food and materials to live with. When everything is in abundance/excess we wont need money. If we don't bring the Earth back into balance and abundance, we will always need to work harder, we will always need more control, we will always be envious, we will always be degenerating. We were never intended to be farmers or to turn the soil. Do animals, birds fish insects or bees need fences, farms, grocery stores, money, refrigerators, electricity, etc.? Life can be so much easier and better than the one we have abused and created for ourselves. Thank you for watching this video.
