The subsistence farm of the future

Any volunteers to put these ideas into practice? 😄

Starting hypotheses

I assume that in the future:

  • Human beings will constantly use their intuition.
  • Farms will be self-sufficient, owned by a village or community.
  • Agriculture will be entirely organic.
  • Animals will not be exploited: they will be part of the family.
  • The inhabitants will be vegetarian, and will not consume alcohol.

This is not a utopia: human beings are waking up, and the new world is coming.

Association with the living

As in Findhorn, a farm will be a partnership with the living.

Farmers will be connected to the visible and the invisible:

  • They will communicate with plant devas.
  • They will use animal communication to avoid devastation.
  • They will be in connection with the subtle guardians, the spirits of nature and the elementals, to ensure the harmonious deployment of the fields.

The association with nature will allow them to listen to the plants. Some might ask for a specific liquid manure to be poured on them at a given time, to make up for a deficiency or to keep an insect away.

Crop diversification

Monoculture will be replaced by polyculture.

The associations of plants will be privileged, as for example:

  • Triticale, peas and oats.
  • Squash, beans and corn.

Seeds will be selected intuitively: mainly traditional seeds with exceptional qualities.

Crop rotation will help the soil to regenerate.

The crops will be surrounded by hedges associating certain species to optimize the harvests and to keep animals away.

Farm networks

Mutual aid will be favored among the subsistence farms of the region.

This will stimulate new ideas and different forms of collaboration.

Surpluses will be exchanged.

Quality of food

Unlike today’s farms, which must be profitable, the subsistence farm of the future will be designed to feed the people of the village or community.

Growers will be aligned with their path of life. Tasks will be done with love.

Communication with the living will allow for exceptional harvests, both in terms of quantity and quality.

The cooks will come and harvest the plants at the time of their preparation, so as not to lose vitality.

They will offer exactly the nutrients that the community needs.

Mechanization

The farm of the future will not be a return to the past: mechanization will have its place.

Some difficult tasks, such as harvesting cereals, will require machines, using renewable or free energy.

However, the association with nature and a good understanding of soil self-fertility will limit the farmers’ tasks.

Weed control will be achieved by dense plant associations, and the continuous succession of crops on the plots.

For example, before the wheat harvest a mixture of cover crops can be sown, to avoid that the soil remains bare afterwards. Or the companion plants of the wheat crop are strongly expressed after the harvest, so that there are always hiding and fertility-producing plants.

On small surfaces, bioplastic geotextile covers can also help to manage weediness.

Breeding

Since the humans of the future will be vegetarian, the need for animal husbandry will be limited.

However, some animal products will be needed for food:

  • Honey.
  • Eggs.
  • Sheep milk.

The harvest will be done in agreement with the bees, chickens and sheep.

Other animals may join the farm. For example, a donkey is an excellent brush cutter.

They will not be exploited, but praised for their skills.

Energy

There is nothing to invent, just to find the lost knowledge of our ancestors.

Most of the inhabitants will know how to increase vibrations.

They will constantly raise the energy of the place, by the use of the geobiology.

Everything will be done in respect of the cycles of nature.

Waste management

The village’s waste will be reused to feed the soil:

  • Sewage.
  • Compost.
  • Dry toilets.
  • Biodegradable packaging.
  • Animal excrement.
  • Ashes.

Conclusion

What does the subsistence farm of the future look like?

Nourished by love, it will honor life.

Tomorrow’s farmers will be guided intuitively by the living.

Crops will meet the needs of the inhabitants, without profitability objectives.
