Green design Biointensive minifarming Organic gardening Living technologies Holistic Health
"We must become the change we wish to see in the world." -Mahatma Ghandi
As we enter our 21st season of biointensive minifarming, we strive to live more lightly on the Earth and to rebuild our health and the health of our ecosystems, keeping in mind the question: how can we be sure that we are on a healthy, regenerative path with our proposed methods and solutions?
How can we ensure that we are not further degrading our world and ourselves? At Neo-Terra we take our proposed methods and solutions as ongoing experiments, subject to assessment, improvement or overhaul as the results indicate!
Here you will find applications and case studies where we have sought to answer these questions, and occasions for you to join with us and try these out for yourselves.
