Creating a Fertile Soil for
Growing Your Own
Library Center Room B Nov.11, 2012 -- 2 PM
A Presentation by Dr. Robert E. Pettit, PhD
Retired Professor at Texas A&M University
Robert spent 27 years setting up experiments and working with farmers in the United States and 12 foreign countries. His objective was to help them maintain a healthy productive soil for improving insect and disease resistance and thereby produce quality products free from mycotoxins and poisons.
Why should we grow as much of our own food as possible?
1] Over 90% of the food consumed in Missouri is transported from other states and nations using fuel imported from other nations. What will happen when the trucks stopped running?
2] Of the food sold in groceries and restaurants 77% fails to meet quality standards for human health and much of this is unsafe & unfit for human consumption.
3] Even this low quality food may not be available because of declining soil fertility, climate changes, rising fuel cost and increased demand worldwide.
4] Our survival and that of our neighbors may soon depend on our growing our own food and producing our own energy locally.
“Our best security in hard times is a Well-Fed Neighbor.”
