Green Gardening Resources

As the Veganic (Vegan Organic or Stockfree Organic) movement continues to grow, many online resources have become available for new and experienced gardeners and farmers who are interested in these sustainable and ethical growing methods.

Gentle World (a site I am proud to write for) is one of these online resources and has a growing wealth of information for beginning veganic growers. There are also three main informative sites that I would recommend to any new or experienced vegan organic grower.]

These sites house a multitude of resources for stockfree, vegan organic and veganic farming and gardening, along with advice from experts in the field.

To learn more about the ethical and environmental reasons for making your garden animal-input free read:

Can't see what's wrong with using animal dung. It would have to come from animals fed organically to meet organic specs , but doesn't harm animals in any way

Biodiversity and symbiotic relationships are critical to sustaining healthy life on our planet. For this reason, green gardening needs to include poultry, algae, fish and Grain Amaranth as well as vegetables. For this purpose I produce quail in a humane simulated natural environment. The quail provide meat, eggs and manure to provide most nutrients for algae production. I super-aerate the algae tank so algae obtains the carbon it needs from CO2 in the air. Algae provides feed for algae-eating fish such as Tilapia. The Tilapia provide manure and fish-water with urine to "fertigate" (fertilize and irrigate) vegetables and Grain Amaranth. I grow a popping variety of Amaranth, and pop this grain to make it more digestible when fed to quail ...or used in food dishes. The above food production system (so-called "Hydroculture") is detailed in my U.S. Patent No. 5,121,708 and my U.S. Provisional Patent Application No. 61/795,914, dated 10/31/2012. This technology combines poultry production, algalculture, aquaculture and aquaponics. For desert regions (1/3rd of all land area), I also add a modified version of hydroponics with plants being given roots in sand rather than just water (in the case of typical hydroponics).
