All farmers are artists. Their palette is the earth, where they create their paintings with various seeds and animals, to produce food that sustains mankind. An enormous responsibility that needs unequivocal support from all.

We have all heard of Nagasaki and Hiroshima, the trauma of the atom bombs that swiftly ended world war 2. Post this war, naphtha stocks (an essential for any explosive) were converted by american armament manufacturers to a wide range of agro chemicals that became the magical tools of the farmers for boosting instant production.
Effectively all farmers globally had free reign to create their tiny Nagasakis and Hiroshimas.  
The cumulative impact of these practices is nothing short of disastrous, all of mankind is caught in this nexus, be it the farmer or the consumer, and most importantly the environment.
Nature is a crystal filled wisdom, and her bounty is unconditional. Can we survive without oxygen? We cannot and its free. We take it for granted. The time is on us now to address and redress the imbalances created by our actions which have created quick flavour in our balance sheets over long term disaster.

Realising this Makaibari has led the charge way back in the eighties to pioneer holistic farming to global tea and biodynamic practices to the tropics. Farming, holistically ushers in the flavour in the balance sheet of life. It addresses economics, politics and the environment. It ushers in balance. Today all issues of humanity is about harmony.
Holistic sustainable agricultural practices brings harmony. Harmony brings peace and its attendant sustainable prosperity.
A win win for all.

"Soils constitute the foundation of vegetation and agriculture. Forests need it to grow. We need it for food, feed, fiber, fuel and much more."
