Tim's philosophy of organic growing

Growing your own organic food in your backyard is more than just an interesting hobby.

Growing your own organic food, and supporting local and organic growers, is a way of making an effective change towards a sustainable, poison free, biodiversity and carbon friendly society.

By supporting organic growers and growing your own, you are avoiding pesticides that consume energy and destroy biodiversity. Organic also takes carbon from the atmosphere and returns it to the soil. At least thirty percent of human carbon emissions come from some part of the food chain, including production, distribution and consumption. At the same time, you are avoiding toxic chemicals that may harm your own health, and choosing nutrient dense food.

Organic is a real part of the solution. It is something everyone can do. It is the obvious way to garden at home, where children, friends and pets roam.

Growing organic, buying organic, putting solar panels on your roof and voting for politicians that support local organic and solar options is a fundamental and easy way to be a responsible citizen in the carbon age.

Get in touch with your environment by producing some of your own food for yourself. There is no planet B, so make organic your plan A.

Faith and Science

A woman said to Ajahn Brahm that her Catholic faith was threatened when she looked out through a telescope and began to understand the vastness of the universe. She asked him, as a Buddhist teacher and a former member of the Cambridge astronomy society, to respond. he said "Madam, if you look back... through the fat end of the telescope and see who is watching then science becomes threatened." 

He said that great scientific findings are not understood but rather something that we just get used to. "All those big numbers and equations" and the vast vast distances of the universe are really lost on even the greatest scientists. We do not deeply understand it we just get used to it. He encouraged a spiritual approach to really understand. 

It is good to try and understand the vastness of the universe, "If you stop at a mystery and leave it as a mystery then you are coping out of the adventure of the mind which seeks for truth and knowledge." But he encouraged us to look to our human compassion and link these findings to human suffering, to suffering in the world. The answer for Ajahn Brah, and his encouragement to become a monk: 'watching the watcher'; looking through the 'fat end' of the telescope and seeing who was looking out. 

"Deeply in meditation" he said "you realize that that time and space is created by the watcher". Perception is reality.
