Covid-19 is snowing under climate change. Although there has been no snow in many places for a long time. It made me think. I wear my mouth mask, disinfect on time, and wash my hands and stay indoors as much as possible. Some family members are at risk and common sense … Apart from that, we have little control.
But does that also apply when it comes to the climate? How did I contribute so far? Can’t we do more here?
By the way my garden is what you could call a patch of greenery that I’m not too concerned about. The wild grass is allowed to take its course. The two naves are my rock in the surf. The old yew has grown into a tree about 5 meters high. Some old danes are on their way back. Some birches, which were already of a stately age in the 1970s when the house was built, call it quits. Those three dead birch trees with mushrooms got me thinking. In total I have 20 acres of green space and I think it could be used better.
Being able to get your own food from your garden has been my line of thought for some time now. In times of war …
Robert Hart is the man who inspired me. This pioneer not only wanted to take care of his disabled brother, but also looked for a solution to the food problem. His vision was mainly based on the work of Gandhi who he had studied extensively through his work as a journalist at Reuters. But the pacifist Toyohiko Kagawa was also his source of inspiration. The choice of his plants and trees was not only functional but also had enormous spiritual significance.
My interest was aroused and in the meantime I devour all the information there is to read. There is so much but in the end you can read what you want. Sometimes you just have to get started. That is what we want to do with bARK.today.
