Permaculture is the future
Permaculture is a forward-thinking design system based on principles found in nature. Its purpose is to create living environments that are harmonious, sustainable and productive; while greatly reducing the work and energy required to maintain them. At its core are the ethical principles of earth care, people care and fair shares.

read your blog post. I didn't follow the link you post on there.
Lets for one minute assume that you are 100% correct in this assesment that this is an ad for cow shit. I question your motives how ever. You say that GMO isn't going to hurt you and you base your scientific argument on the fact that the article above is false, therefor GMO is safe?
Who are you? Who do you work for?

Duane Tilden's curator insight, February 25, 2013 6:49 AM

My soil is so well flocculated that it is like a thatched roof. It allows a clump of my silver-tipped bluestem grass to have as much as 25 miles of root system, and for every 25 miles of root system, it probably has 50 miles of mycelia or fungi that bring nutrients to that grass. I feed the microorganisms compost tea, which I learned how to make when I studied with Elaine Ingham from the University of Oregon, and now scientific director at Rodale Institute. She built on the work of Sir Albert Howard, the father of organic farming, from the U.K. I have two 250-gallon tanks in a special barn called the Tea Barn. I pull out the protozoa and the fungi, all of the biology out of the compost into a solution, just like making tea, then spray that all over my pasture. I did that four times a year for seven years, believing that was the way to a healthy farm, and it was. Now we only have to spray compost tea every other year.
