World Vegetarian Day

Today is World Vegetarian Day 2022, and in a month’s time it will be the turn for World Vegan Day 2022.

What is the connection between both?

There might be a couple of connections. On this post we will zoom in on this one: All vegans eat vegetarian food (not to be confused with ovo lacto vegetarian). But not all everyone eating vegetarian food are necessarily vegan.

It might sound like a riddle. Actually is a very simple concept.

Take this is as an invitation to download The Food Target brochure to learn (or relearn) the ropes. And also to remember that words matter.

The big question is: Will Community Food Forests be able to provide a complete, tasty, varied and nutritious Vegetarian food year around?

Answer: Of course NOT. Only a cooperative Worldwide Community Food Forest Network will accomplish that. Note: To be fair, not one permaculture project in a single private property is able to provide a complete, tasty, varied and nutritious food source year around no matter if it is an omnivore or vegetarian design.

Beyond Vegan Permaculture Design Course

Non-commercial year-long Beyond Vegan Permaculture Design Course, Mexico 2022-2023.

👉 Free Food For Future (FFFF) co-host gatherings to foster relationships between plant-based people (both fully practicing, and the ones committed to fast track their transition) & Libre Food projects in Community Food Forests in Mexico and applicable worldwide.

👉 We seek to facilitate a year-long Beyond Vegan Permaculture Design Course (BeVegPDC). Co-creating it with a group of living beings of all generations, family-oriented, free-breathing spaces, where participants certify each other as peers in a non-commercial agreement* after fulfilling all modules at the end of the year-long BeVegPDC.

👩‍🎓➡️ The BeVegPDC will be comprised by a variety of modules, for example, but not limited to:

Noble Peace: Is peace for ALL beings, or is it just for HUMAN beings? A Non-Negotiable Stand For Life. Full Presence Collective Action.

Co-Creation of Noble Peace Cultures. A social regenerative angle for communities in full presence. Applied Prosocial and Sociocracy.

Transcending Vegan Permaculture: Pathways to Cultures of Noble Peace.

Free Food For Future: Compare study of Libre Food and Stock-free Organic/Veganic Standards, and co-create thriving community food forests, rich in Biodiversity & Nature, Regenerative Food Production, Nutrition and Flavors, Emotions, Community & Governance, and New Economy Models.

• “Eco. no. my” (not my home) to “Eco. yes. we(we are home): Enjoying the Scarcity to Prosperity journey. There is no planet B. That’s right! Instead of focusing on what we don’t have, let me propose to you to think about this wonderful Planet A that we don’t “have” either, but to think instead we that “are” it. 

PermaParenting: From Full Presence in Pro(Co)Creation, to co-parenting Free Children.

Community Food Forests and Permagardens: Groups of people planting mostly perennial, mostly using plant-based fertilizers, cover crops and no-till methods while regenerating biological regions with abundant diversity. 

Farm Transition Planning from raising animals to Plant-Based.

• Non-human Animal Refugee Camps to Full Blossom Sanctuaries.

⚠️⚠️⚠️ non-commercial agreement*:

Because this event is not commercial, but a private trust, there are no products or services for sale, no refunds, no purchases, no payments; this is simply because all those things are commercial actions and our trust relationships are private. This is fundamental.
We are all exchanging legitimate gifts and honor with each other under the trust to ensure the success of the event.
At the start of the first module we will agree on the registration process and The Event Trust Indenture that will be co-created by all participants. You will need to accept those private trust relationships that we will create between all of us to become a member of the trust and support the events and benefit from them.

The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Loquats (locally known as “Nísperos”)

I read somewhere that all the round and colorful decoration on a Christmas tree 🎄 represent the wishful thinking of seeing fruits again hanging on the trees once the winter have passed.

So these are just the first wave of the presents this loquat tree is giving us the day before Christmas.

Hey, Kids! Don’t try this at home 😉

Funny thing is this tree is most probably the result from a squirrel that dropped or buried the fruits seed in this narrow patch of soil. Such a fine example that “everyone gardens”.

Bees, Air Pollution and Environmental Day Actions

https://image.spreadshirtmedia.com/image-server/v1/compositions/13261656T842A2PC115119705PA1776PT17X34Y0S49/views/1,width=300,height=300,appearanceId=2,version=1440417743/bee-with-gas-mask-t-shirts-tote-bag.jpg

After one of the most terrible weeks of Air Pollution in Mexico City’s (YES! We are in Mexico) history, it is time to celebrate #WorldBeeDay today.

What is the link between air pollution and bees? (You might be wondering)

Let’s talk first about bees…

In order to produce 1 pound of honey, 2 million flowers must be visited. A hive of bees must fly 55,000 miles to produce a pound of honey. One bee colony can produce 60 to 100 pounds of honey per year. An average worker bee makes only about 1/12 teaspoon of honey in its lifetime.

As you might have noticed, the last piece of information comes from a honey company. I would dare to say that companies like this one are the most interested in taking actions to keeping bees alive. But for opposite reasons to those of vegans. (Read The honey industry)

Now, talking about air pollution. It’s consequences are not exclusive for humans. Air pollution is also thought to be affecting bees. Preliminary research shows that air pollutants interact with scent molecules released by plants which bees need to locate food. The mixed signals interfere with the bees ability to forage, making them slower and less effective at pollination.

According to the UN, here is how you can help taking action to #BeatAirPollution.

Decide what action you are going to take to #BeatAirPollution

Here are some examples:

  • Use public transport or car sharing, cycle or walk
  • Switch to a hybrid or electric vehicle and request electric taxis
  • Turn off the car engine when stationary
  • Reduce your consumption of meat and dairy to help cut methane emissions
  • Compost organic food items and recycle non-organic trash
  • Switch to high-efficiency home heating systems and equipment
  • Save energy: turn off lights and electronics when not in use 
  • Choose non-toxic paints and furnishings

Source: https://www.worldenvironmentday.global/get-involved/world-environment-day-mask-challenge

I would add that rather than just reducing your meat and dairy consumption, planning to gradually eliminate them while replacing that void with the best locally sourced and toxin-free produce (vegetables, grains and fruits) would be most beneficial to all life on Earth.  

Have a look at the Food Target PDF for more info on how this can help you, other animals and the whole planet.

ON A FINAL NOTE: If you are into observing international celebrations, you’ll also want to pay attention to this date coming up soon:

Air pollution is the theme for World Environment Day on 5 June 2019. The quality of the air we breathe depends on the lifestyle choices we make every day. Learn more about how air pollution affects you, and what is being done to clean the air. What are you doing to reduce your emissions footprint and #BeatAirPollution?

Guiding Star and Near Star in Systems Thinking

For the next module of Designing for Environmental Sustainability and Social Impact, – the free +Acumen course we are taking – The Noble Peace Tribe went deep into Systems Thinking. Way deep!

The good news is that we resurfaced with clarity on, among other things, both our guiding star (vision) and near stars (5-10 year goals):

Guiding star (vision)

A humane global system change that transcends war to 
peace, exploitation to cooperation and fear to trust*

(* Read more on this here:
LASTING PEACE AND FUNCTIONING COMMUNITIES)

We used a feedback loop approach to visualize our guiding star and got a vicious cycle about the currently ending global system, and a virtuous cycle about the humane global system change. Here, have a look at both and give us your feedback… loop (no, sorry, just your feedback):

Experimental Peace Research and Learning Centers Post

So it happens, a few weeks ago Sylvie enrolled us both in a free course offered by +Acumen called Designing for Environmental Sustainability and Social Impact, recommended by one of her closest friends. We are using this online learning experience as a means to get more structure in developing Experimental Peace Research and Learning Centers(1).

We are excited about the possibilities to find the best way to frame our projects using the concepts we are meant to learn the following 6 weeks of duration of this course.

Moving countries to live in a Raw Vegan Fruit Forest Community in the Ecuadorian Amazon did not work out 1 year ago. What has happened since?

JORGE: It was all very promising to travel to Ecuador in the beginning of 2018 to volunteer in a permaculture/edible forest community, coming all the way from Mexico, and meeting with my partner Sylvie in person for the first time. But as it turned out, and although this Fruit Forest project has a lot of potential,  it did not provide the sense of community and shared joyful work amongst the residents and other participants there. It was a welcomed experience for me though, involving very intense physical activities with machete in one hand and preparing our own meals with the other. I feel content of both contributing with my best effort towards the culmination of this project, and also about all the learned lessons and hands-on veganic permaculture new knowledge.

SYLVIE: We both moved to Ecuador in the beginning of 2018 to volunteer in a permaculture/edible forest community. It was exciting quitting my “regular” live in Belgium as a project manager of a large European conservation project to do work exchange together with my partner and making this our new home. This Fruit Forest project looked very promising and it has potential, but we did not find the sense of community and joyful work shared amongst the residents and other participants there. The work exchange was very physical and included weeding, mulching, seeding and taking care of the plant nursery, planting and pruning trees, clearing land with machete for planting purposes, processing humanure, but also some maintenance work on the property as well as house keeping. I enjoyed very much planting and maintaining fruit and companion trees, learning about humanure, exotic fruit trees, local nitrogen fixing and companion plants, harvesting fruit, seeds and some vegetables, roots and herbs as well as the planning involved to grow such a fruit forest. I was also inspired to see that the project was trying to reforest in an area surrounded by cattle farms. However, it was sad to realize that mining and the pollution/contamination that comes with it has reached this part of the jungle and poses a risk to the clean water supply. 

1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY IN ECUADOR

We are currently on our 1 year anniversary of living in Ecuador. We have been working on different proyects in the Amazon, Andes and Coast. Right now we are relocating and focused on finding our home and tribe. More about this after the following short but sweet “profile” section below.
