Vandana Shiva: “Organic farming increases carbon absorption of soil by 55%”

When we explore the oldest traditions all around the world, we see the foundations of sacred soil, sacred earth, and our own place in the Cycle of Life. Even science has begun to agree with the Upanishads: we live in an interconnected web. Whether East Indian or American Indian, what Chief Seattle said holds true:

“Every part of the earth is sacred to my people. Every shining pine needle, every sandy shore, every mist in the dark woods, every meadow, every humming insect. All are holy in the memory and experience of my people.

“This we know: the earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. All things are connected like the blood that unites us all. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself. “
