Dear "Living Farms" supporters,
Many years ago, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) drew attention to the connection between global warming, our health system and the spread or multiplication of viruses. Today this connection seems more real than ever before.
By linking our global world, we have created unique opportunities. Today we live in a world in which we are connected by our environment, our economy and by our social being, which longs for exchange, connection and communication. We have moved closer together than any generation before us.
At the same time, we can see from the current situation that our dealings with nature - our environment - have led to the earth becoming out of balance.
The Living Farms project aims to make knowledge accessible for a healthy, sustainable change. We aim to provide inspiration and opportunities for action for people in this rapidly changing world. In the face of the current crisis, dependencies and interdependencies are becoming more evident, and it is more important than ever before to show practical solutions for sustainable agriculture and a future-proof food system.
At the same time, we are currently experiencing a slowdown. Many of us are asking: What is important at the individual level, but also at the level of society as a whole? What will a world look like after Corona? Is this time perhaps even a chance for a "new start" for our community? A "readjustment" of the current grievances? Do we want and can we now create a world that creates a coexistence in which people support each other? A world in which we pay attention to nature and its needs? A world in which we live in true balance between the needs of ourselves as human beings and our environment?
We think the Living Farms project must continue despite or because of Corona. We are actively working on all tasks that can take place without travelling to the farms. This means that we process the video recordings of the Kenya trip and the agricultural conference into videos from our home office. At the same time, we are working on the detailed reports of the farm visits for the book publication, as well as the planning for the upcoming workshops, exhibitions and seminars. Our social media channels will also continue to be filled with exciting content.
We look forward to making the next videos available to you soon. We are pleased about your support, comments and sharing the videos! We are grateful to be able to continue such an important project and to plan and realize the near future together with the biodynamic farms and the movement.
For questions in the meantime, we are at your disposal on all channels!
