Thoughtful Interviews

We track Richard Vobes from the UK. He’s become a popular Youtube personality in 2023. His focus upon natural living, farming and building an open society shows considerable wisdom.


Charles Dowding’s No Dig method

For the past 40 years, Charles Dowding has pioneered the No Dig method of growing flowers and vegetables. A successful market gardener, teacher and author, Charles shares the technique with Julia and me, and view the bountiful results.

Understanding Soil

Another classic interview from Richard Vobes. How do we return depleted soil from intensive farming to a wholesome state so that we can grow healthy food? Richard Higgins, chairman of Good Gardening International Charity, joins me to explain the impressive Howard-Higgins Organic Cultivation system. It will blow your mind… Check out Richard’s website here:

One small town concept

Fascinating interview here. The ultimate in community-building.

The use of town, market or community tokens for food or other services is an amazing concept, and it’s not new, although rare ‘downunder’. Tokens avoid all the uncertainly and risks associated with crypto payment and blockchain tools. Our system is similar to the system Michael discussed, but more optimised for NZ farmers and communities. It’s all 100% legal, safe, secure and monies/tokens tracked and audited using normal accounting processes.

Online seminars will be run shortly to explain it all and the immense benefits to NZ growers, large and small. We’ll certainly need this option if the government goes rogue with their own draconian digital currencies and social controls. Our eCommerce page outlines the basic features included.
