Just as humans need the nutrients from plants to thrive and grow, so do the plants need the nutrients from the soil - such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, calcium, iron, and magnanese. In this much-requested episode, learn how organic matter from plants (i.e. compost) enriches the soil, how animal slaughterhouse waste is unnecessary to create a healthy and abundant garden, and how to create harmony with all the creatures in your garden - even the snails!

In today's episode, I read an excerpt from a very special book called The World Peace Diet, written by Will Tuttle. Will is one of these amazing people who uses his compassion and wisdom in order to create the world we all envision - a world of peace and kindness and nonviolence and high consciousness. The excerpt I read provides an appropriate segue to talk briefly about the USDA's "Animal Damage Control" program (now euphemistically called (Wildlife Services) which kills millions of wild animals every year on behalf of cattle, sheep, and other "livestock" ranchers. Just one more reason that animal consumption and "environmentalism" cannot co-exist.
