      Hi Alan,

      You're right, how can carbon savings be calculated?
      I have stopped calculating because it is like imposing quotas or limits or
      deadlines. For example I consider it a lack of humility to plant seeds and
      then expect immediate returns from weakened crops trying to survive in the
      unnatural surroundings we put them in. NF requires abandoning conventional
      goals such as having a bumper crop in the first year or making a profit.


      I was having this conversation with loved ones around me who said that my
      natural farming can never feed the world because not everybody has land to
      plant to a few crops, and besides revenue from my cultivation could never
      buy me an internet subscription, etc.. There I was listening to them and
      thinking that the hardest thing to change is a mindset.

      Many times I think of hunter-gatherer tribes that still exist in the world
      today and how they do not have the hoarding habit we have. They take from
      nature what they can eat and eat what they can take. They have no fears of
      Nature ever failing to feed them. Sometimes I wonder why people like us who
      can send men into space cannot feed all the world's inhabitants.

      Have a nice day.
      RUTHIE
