THE URGENCY OF BECOMING WISER

The knowledges of the First Nations have been ingored to this day in U.S.A & Europe. If their lifestyle has inspired us, they are in a way the first ecologist and agronomist in the world before science become university playground.

Colonization  have wiped away many ethnies and their heritages. More recently, the globalization of agriculture and of our consumerist lifestyle, make us all responsible of the international biosphere empoverishement and soil fertility depletion.

Life is silently quitting our soils and the whole symbiotic earth system.

In addition, the pace of our society and the poor food quality influence our health, behavior and immune defenses system. The proper functionning of our guts microbiota closely depends on the health of our soil microbiota.

 

It becomes urgent to think outside of the box and get rid eof dissociative and dissonant thoughts in order to opt for holistic understanding, a integrative and regenerative vision of living things on earth.

In August 2019 already  the IPCC published a report affirming the link between food insecurity and unsustainable food production methods.

LOSS OF SOIL BIOLOGY

A soil is qualified as soil when it has these 3 aspects, otherwise it is a dead material

  • Its texture (sand, silt, clay, silica, etc.)
  • Its organic matter
  • Its biology

 The obsolescence of our production and agricultural system is based on the need to disrupt an initial ecosystem in order to re-set it on human being. The destruction of soil biology by humans has therefore led to a system of chemical inputs dependence.

Feeding the plants rather than the soil is a nonsense.

Deforesting to install yards of monoculture farms lead to destroy a balanced biodiversity system.

It means as well hat we have destroy the homeostatic capacity of nature to self-regulate its self in the favor of massive lands farming methods that require chemical inputs that are indexed to phosphorus and oil extraction.

 

Water scarcity

Only 3% of the Earth’s water is fresh water and 97% salt water. Here is how fresh water is distributed:

  • The surface water evaporates,
  • Groundwater disappearing and becoming polluted,
  • The frozen waters that melt at sight with the climatic disturbance
  • Rivers and lakes disappearing visibly and their pollution

Water is the blood of the land, the heart of the forests and the vector of climate balance.

Our water management is disconnected with its resources. Our ignorance of this element, which is so vital, leads humanity to irreversible desertification if we keep going this way.

 Our food production farming methods absorb much more than the water renewal cycle. And yes, using drinking water for our toilets in Europe and U.S.A. while the rest of the world has no access to drinking water, is once again foolish.

In 2019, France had 73 departments in a state of water alert and water restriction. 

In April 2018, the South African government restrainted the city of Cape Town’s water consumption to a ratio of 40 litres per person. This represents 4 flushes per day. 40 liters to clean the dishes, water your garden, take your shower, cook … Meanwhile, farmers could not water their land and suffered a significant loss. The army requisitioned the water resources to dispense them to the population.

In Europe, fresh water silently leaves our soil. Yet we witness it disappear earlier every year. Deforestation, our consumption patterns, land deionization and steppe agriculture are factors that we can change.

It all starts with a YES.

We need transitional tools capable of producing 100% natural food, able to save fresh water and ways to clean up streams.

“Early life”

Atypical background, I was born in France and come from Russia ancestors that fled Second World War in 1933.

I spent 11 years of my life abroad between West Africa, United States, Canada, Vietnam, Burma, Bali and France. My relationship with Nature started in my childhood spent in Niger Africa.

I graduated from a French Research Master in psychology (specialization in neuropscyhology and cognitive neurosciences). I was then accepted at the graduate school of Art & Sciences of New York University (NYU)  in Manhattan. But I quickly dropped out in view of the year-round prize and the modest environment of my social class. I served the French National Military Police Forces when I was a student at the Paris V University for many years.

“Scientist, Innovator and Farmer”

In NYC 2014, I got a serious guts microbiota infection lost around 75 lbs. This disease was the wake up call for a life change. I wanted to understand how did I got sick. I started my quest from my guts microbiota, then went through the food I was eating and fianlly ended up working with the soil microbiota.

Today I have more than 6 years experience in practicing aquaponics and soil farming in diverses cliamtes. I have learn aquaponics in the U.S.A and Australia with Industrial Aquaponics farming and in South East Asia with the ancestral fish&rice farming method. I have learn how water is a fundamental ressource to manage in a sustainable way when it comes about land farming.

My scientific approach and research consisted in exploring sustainable & regenerative farming methods for food production. I always considered that everything is a small part of the big symbiotic whole.

“from Experience, to Experimentations and modelization”

In Vietnam, I pusue my quest for answers and understanding the whole food supply chain production. All my attentional focus and cognitive ressources started quiclly to design experiments and test hypothesis.

Blue Soil is based on al those years of experiences and empirical experimentations. All the micro-farms I have built have been my empirical lab where I could extract a complete and innovative soil regenerative process that I have patented in 2019.

“patent”

In 2019 I return to France and decide to file a patent. Patenting life is not my taste but it helps me to remain independant.

“Involving Farmers”

The fact that many farmers suicide daround the worl is a worldwide indicator of serious society disfunction. Farmers have always been the pilar of a powerful nation. Change must involve farmers
