Lecture 4 - The Seeds of Vandana Shiva
In the fourth lecture, moderated by Jasper Griepink and Victoria McKenzie, Vandana Shiva will be your guest speaker. As always, the food intervention is organised by Radical Roots. Today, they will resonate with Sankrit Kulmanochawong.
Our health begins in healthy soils. Healthy soils are living systems. The soil is not an empty container for pouring synthetic chemical fertilizers. Plants are not machines, running on NPK from factories and mines.
We know that the Soil is living. Prof. Rattan Lal, who received the 2020 World Food Prize, has said, “I believe Soil is a living thing. That’s what soil health means. Soil is Life. Every living thing has rights. Therefore soil also has rights.” That is why indigenous cultures call the land and soil Mother Earth, Bhoomi Ma, Pachamama.
