Veganic Farming in New Zealand

Growing, harvesting and enjoying home-grown food can be one of the great joys in life, because it provides us with a connection to nature that is much-needed in these modern times. It also offers us the opportunity to tune into the great miracle that plant-foods represent the metamorphosis that turns energy from the soil, water, air and sunlight into food we can eat without harming sentient beings.

When we grow food veganically, it enables us to provide nourishment for ourselves without sacrificing our most deeply-held values. For those of us who reject the products of animal exploitation, veganic growing offers us a way forward into a future where we can avoid creating demand for products sourced from industries of misery, while enjoying nutritious, delicious, clean, healthy, vibrant food.

is this for a challange or "animal poop is not ours to do anything with!" wow.
or a "even the turds from factory farms are used. we must put an end to using animals for anything" even if someone had a pet horse or cow?

what next? stop using animals in story books?

Oh, Good luck NZ. you'll have to save some of your veganic veggies for the bunnies. those rabbits deserve life more than the intended market.

Awesome! And in my own country. I'll be seeking this place out, in search for advise and info for planning my plot of vegetable and herb garden on an acre of land, going organic the whole way!
