BioVortex

What is Biovortex?

Biovortex has been described as a biologically minded approach towards regenerative solutions, a scientific and soulful appreciation for the interrelated nature of all life and energy, an art project utilizing plants, people, places, projects, photography, and demonstrating the effectiveness of ecodynamic gardening, building soil, transforming waste, permaculture design, and environmental consciousness! There is a relationship of land, water, earth, sky, plants, animals, fungi, life, death, rebirth, as the flow of life energy – photons from the sun, reaches into photosynthetic bacteria encapsulated within plants. An age old cycle of energy capture, transfer, and release, as plants eat animals, and fungi eat plants, and animals eat themselves… Utilizing the systems perfected by nature, and intelligent observation, allows the design of systems of incredible productivity, that simultaneously regenerate and restore the land, soil, and watershed.

Short Overview of 'Why Regenerative Farming?'

The Emerald Cup's Regenerative Cannabis Farm Award

Tim Blake, Founder of The Emerald Cup asked this organization to create a new category award to specifically recognize farmers who are stewards of the land and protect the ecology and environment while farming cannabis. The award…

…is designed to be a catalyst of positive competition filled with information sharing, land stewardship, ethical marketing, watershed consciousness and love of nature, living soil and biodiversity. We want the cannabis industry to be excited about and influenced by permaculture, natural farming and biodynamic principles. The cost decrease, the quality increase and the potential for positive marketing that can be gained from regenerative agriculture techniques can serve as a positive guide for industry to forge a more harmonious relationship between nature and economics.

The way we grow plants can have the power to help or hurt our environment. Sadly, the direction taken by modern agriculture has been devastating for the planet, destroying our topsoil, diverting and poisoning our water, while growing toxic and nutrient poor food that leads a host of health issues. The societal and environmental costs of bad agricultural practices are staggering and terrifying. Cannabis can be cultivated in ways that are high-impact, resource-excessive, and harmful to people, water and the land. However, with the right practices, cannabis can also be grown in a way that can help heal the environment
