ENVISION THIS: A CENTER FOR PEACE RESEARCH THAT PROVIDES “THOSE WHO DON'T WANT WAR” WITH “A VISION FOR PEACE” Sabine Licktenfels and Benjamin von Mendelssohn will be our guests to represent Tamera Peace Research Center. Tamera’s aim is to develop an example of a model for a nonviolent co-existence of people and between people and nature. Approximately 150 people live, work and study in Tamera.
Tamera is situated in the Alentejo region of Portugal, one of the least densely populated regions of Europe. With the Water Retention Landscape Tamera has created a solution for the ongoing desertification: Like an oasis, it shows lush gardens and terraces and an edible Permaculture landscape for food sovereignty. The SolarVillage Testfield, the Temple of Love, the Political Ashram, and the School of Hope for children are further projects in Tamera.
Sabine is a co-founder of Tamera and founder of the GRACE Foundation for the humanization of money. Benjamin is co-leader of Tamera with a strong connection to peace work.
In community with all at Tamera, they work to reintegrate human life into the basic laws of the universe and the earth, in the name of affection for all creatures, in the name of all children, and in the name of love.
Today we talk with our Scientific Director calling in from China about mapping hunger and moringa.as regards climate chanage: Moringa in modern agriculture and its contribution to hunger and climate change. Hunger and poverty affects more than 1 billion of the 7 billion people on the planet.
LORENZO CAPONETTI, is a farmer and Casa Caponetti, located in Tuscania, Italy, is his farm.
Passionate about sustainability and arid countries, he applies many of the skills and the solutions he witnessed during his travels throughout the Mediterranean, the Middle East and Central Asia while studying Architecture, Forestry Science and Rural Planning at university.
He speaks annually at the Culinary Institute of America, and the International Culinary Art and Science Institute. His lectures range from the nutritional, cultural and environmental values of Extra-Virgin Olive Oil, to the ecology of farming and the importance of organic farming in contrasting desertification and the effects of climate change.
His Extra-Virgin Olive Oil is well-renowned around the world and his comparative research on Etruscan hydraulic engineering took him to hold seminars at various universities and institutions, including the United Nation University in Hamilton, Ontario.
On the farm he keeps busy with the production of olive oil; with vegetables and canned food; raising horses, cows and pigs; and with tourism, education, and non profit activities. Since July 31st, 2008 he is the father of a baby girl named Matilde.
ENVISION THIS...Deserts shrinking instead of expanding, being revitalized with forests, food plants, fertile soil, wildlife, and adequate rainfall. This is the vision in Masanobu Fukuoka's posthumous book, SOWING SEEDS IN THE DESERT, translated and edited by his longtime friend and our guest, Larry Korn. Fukuoka was not only an agricultural genius who produced rice and enhanced the soil of his farm without fertilizer, irrigation, herbicides, or pesticides. He was al
Our society benefits from a multitude of nature’s blessings grounded upon biodiversity, known as ecosystem services. Sadly, however, over the last 50 years this biodiversity has been lost at an unprecedented pace. In Africa what used to lush tropical forest is gradually losing out to the aridity of the savannah and the desert. Unfortunately, desertification goes with desiccation of the land: rainfall reduces where the forest gives way to the grassland and so the land or the soil loses its fertility. The loss of the land’s fertility means the reduction in food production in a world whose population is increasing at a pace not commensurate with the production of food to sustain it. Several attempts are being made by governments, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and corporations to restore the environment.
This episode examines the attempts at restoring the environment’s biodiversity. The administrative factors, replanting and other methods needed to restore the ecosystem would be discussed with the experts and guests invited to today’s program.
