Join the Gbiota club

I am inviting you to join the Gbiota club. I can and do put forward the logical reasons to join, it is essentially community supported agriculture – buyers support growers and get the benefits of nutritious food grown under carefully controlled conditions while the growers have an assured customer base and can focus their interest in improving their soils using regenerative techniques.

All sound totally logical – and it is but it is not the real reason. It is about my grand kids and their grand kids who don’t even exist as yet.

modern agWe live in what is called the Anthropocene where humans have a major impact on the earth. If I listed all that is going wrong it would be more than depressing, climate change, obesity, diabetes, degradation of our soils, social unrest, inequality the list of problems goes on and on.

The real reason we have these problems is that we have leaders who focus on short term benefits – profits and power now for them.

But humans are smart and cooperative creatures, if we work together we call solve these problems together, we – us people can do it – we can’t rely on our leaders – we have to become leaders and show them.

We can start by growing food in a way which is both healthy and sustainable, based on breading beneficial biology in recycled waste and adding essential trace minerals.

food for heatlhTo be honest I don’t really care about dollars and cents, I am 81 and have enough money to last the rest of my expected life.

But I do care about the life my grand kids and their grand kids – so join me in the Gbiota club in making the world a better place for our grand kids to live in. Stuff the greedy politicians and big business tycoons – we can do it ourselves.

phoneThe Gbiota is more than people buying healthy food directly from the grower, although that is essential.

It is about what sort of world we, and our grand kids live in.

We can be puppets controlled by profits obsessed corporations, myopic power mad politicians, or even worse the technology which dominates our lives. Luckily I have my granddaughters to teach me how to use my mobile phone.

I am not saying that these people are necessarily bad, it it the system and we need to change the system so we have control over how our food is grown, we want food that will make us healthy grown in a sustainable way.

Or we can take control of our lives, now I would make a useless politician but I am an innovator and have developed the technology of growing plants which act as pre and pro biotics and I can organise the communications site where club members can decide amongst themselves what they want to grow and eat.

But I can not do that myself, it is up to club members to take the initiative, first step is to register and join the club.

 Not all cabbages are the same

One could have been grown in soil full of beneficial biology and essential trace minerals – the other in tired soils, depleted in minerals and life but still growing with synthetic chemicals and toxic sprays.

Unless you happen to have a mass spectrometer and DNA sequencer in your hand bag you have no way of knowing.  But by joining the Gbiota club we can ensure our food is grown in healthy soil, full of beneficial biology and essential trace minerals.

Healthy food starts in healthy soil. Gbiota beds grow food in nutritious biologically active soil by breeding the beneficial biology in organic waste and adding essential trace minerals

Join the Gbiota club

We have three types of membership

Customers – who just don’t have the time or land to grow their own food but still want to eat healthy food

Home Growers – who want to use the Gbiota technology to grow the best food for themselves.

Commercial Growers – who want to use the Gbiota technology but need a regular cutomer base.

The Gbiota club does not buy or sell food, we provide the technology on how to grow food, specifically gut brain food, for health and link growers and buyers together.

 

Soil is key

Health starts in the soil which is formed by microbiology breaking down rocks and is continuously circulated as plant grow, die and decompose back into soil. We can asses the quality of the soil by the number of worms which are reworking the soil. Read Making Soil

Gut micro biology

We have evolved with this micro-biology which now forms an essential part of our gut.

Trillions of cells made up from thousands of species. But this is much more than trillions of dumb cells – they communicate with each other and our head brain to form an intelligent control system to manage our bodies.

Our gut brain  –  controls our appetite so we have enough energy but don’t overeat – manufactures the complex chemicals we need to replace our body parts as they age and hosts much of our immune system so protect us from pandemics

Modern soils in chemical industrial agriculture lack this essential biology. Many of the chemicals used are claimed not to harm us but they certainly harm the soil biology. Read Feed your gut brain and our gut brain

The food crisis

The only thing necessary for the triump of evil is for good men to do nothing  Edmund Burke 1770

There are some eight billion people on earth, there are 250 babies borne very minute – how are we going to feed all these people – now and into the future?

chicken shedOur modern food industry is just staggering in its scale and productivity – we have huge areas growing basics crops like wheat, corn, rice and potatoes and we are continuously chopping down virgin forests to grow palm oil.

We feed much of this to chickens in vast sheds housing thousands of birds, pigs in cages and cows in feed lots.

Our production of chicken wings and chips – and similar foods – is simply stunning.

Right now we are producing enough food to feed a population of some thirteen billion people, more than half the current global population – if is was equitably distributed.

The food we waste ends up in land fill creating green house gases and the loss of essential minerals.

Does that mean we are healthy and is it sustainable? Simply NO.

Evolution

lichenUs humans are the result of millions of years of evolution but our modern food is very different in two important ways to the food we evolved to eat.

The difference is in the soil. Soil is formed by microbiology breaking down rocks and is continuously circulated as plant grow, die and decompose back into soil. This totally depends on micro-biology and the soil creatures particularly the worms.

Gut micro biology

gut brainWe have evolved with this micro-biology which now forms an essential part of our gut .

Trillions of cells made up from thousands of species. But this is much more than trillions of dumb cells – they communicate with each other and our head brain to form an intelligent control system to manage our bodies to do some very important jobs.

Our gut brain does three very important jobs,

– it control our appetite so we have enough energy but don’t overeat

– it manufactures the complex chemicals we need to replace our body parts as they age

– they host much of our immune system so protect us from pandemics

Modern soils in chemical industrial agriculture lack this essential biology. Many of the chemicals used are claimed not to harm us but they certainly harm the soil biology.

Trace minerals

biomin rock dustThese early soils were rich in a wide range of minerals which both we and the plants need for health. But plants are much simpler than us so there are many minerals which we need but plants either do not need or only need in very small amount.

Chemical industrial agriculture replaces the minerals such as N, P, K which the plants need for growth but there is no economic pressure on farmers to replace the trace minerals like chromium, iron, zinc, selenium, iodine which are essential for our health.

There is no economic pressure on farmers to replace the trace minerals like chromium, iron, zinc, selenium, iodine which are essential for our health. Read adapting to the food crisis

Our health comed from healthy soils which come from regenerative agriculture based on recycling organics waste, adding trace minerals and breeding beneficial biology – particularly the worms which are an indicator of soil health.

Feed our gut brain

gut brain axisOur Gut biota are temporary residents breeding and dying.

We simply cannot be fit and healthy without a healthy gut which means the right sort of species which depends on the type of food we feed them.

We can change the biology in our guts by what we eat – just like we can change the cards on a computer for better graphics or maths.

We have evolved with this micro-biology which now forms an essential part of our gut.

Modern foods

modern foods Modern foods, full of sugars and fats and carbs, breed the biology which makes us fat and sick – but we can easily change our biology by adding to our diet the food that helps the beneficial biology bread.

And we know how to do this – there is a vast array of scientific literature on food and gut biology and I have spent many years working out how to grow this food and it is simple just breed worms by feeding them on organic waste, add essential trace minerals and maintain the moisture level at the Goldilocks level, not to wet and not to dry – just right.

This is a totally sustainable system giving us a healthy gut by recycling waste.

This is the Gbiota bed system.

Action

But how do we persuade people that they should be eating plants which is grown in Vermicast which is really just a polite way of saying worm pooh?

Post truth

con manWe live in the post truth era – our media and the Internet is saturated with catchy one liners to manipulate us into buying something or doing something that the powers that be want. People have become totally cynical about the modern information system.

Available technology

The aim of the Gbiota club is to make Gbiota food, gut brain food,  readily available to all people at an affordable price. We need a different approach to the current high pressure manipulative sales technique – we need a system that people can trust based on real people seeing and feeling the benefits for themselves.

Wicking bedFortunately Gbiota beds are a simple and easy way of growing gut food, anyone with even a small bit of land can do it. And it only takes a few weeks for the result to be clear as the good bugs out breed the bad bugs and we stop food cravings – we feel satisfied.

Then these people can tell their friends so they can try it and tell their friends and when there is enough people the regenerative farmers – who want to farm in a sustainable way – will start to grow gut food on a commercial basis so anyone can buy gut food and be on the road to good health.

You can start by reading the The Gbiota Story here to gain a background to the Gbiota project, you can read how to make Gbiota bed in the growing section. But right now we are recruiting group leaders.  I have prepared two documents about the club which you can  read here actionplan8june21 and   csa11june21 and battle These are quite detailed documents for club leaders – if you just want to be an ordinary member then just register from the menu item above.  If you have any problems saying cache error just refresh page and if that does not work contact me  (temporary technical problem we are working on)

Right and wrong

This is not about profit – it is about right and wrong – if Covid has taught us one thing it is that most people have a feeling of what is right and wrong, meaning they are prepared to spend their energy on what is best for the community rather then profit or self interest.

Of course there will always be the Karen of Bunnings (watch on YouTube) and self seekers – it is just a pity they tend to work themselves into positions of power in Governments and big business (watch the news).
