How to Harness Biology to Improve Land, Health and Profitability
Jane Lorimer, of Gibliston Mill, has been healing people with chiropractic, nutrition and natural remedies for 30 years. Now she is extending that to her land.
My mother grew our vegetables and was a superb cook and I was a fully paid up member of Friends of the Earth when I was 11, but we had no clue about microbiomes or the damage that chemicals can do to our ecosystems and health. Inspired by the wonderful kiwi nutritionist, Gillian Hamer at the Wren Clinic which I set up in London in 1990, I wrote, “The Practical Guide to Candida,” and started teaching healthy cooking. Now, 25 years on and discovering Albert Howard, Viktor Shauberger, Rachel Carson and Weston Price – and last year, Allan Savory on the way, it is clear to me that, whether we are concerned with our guts or our soils, when we look after the microbes, healing and health follows. All these great peoples’ work confirms that Nature and our “primitive” traditions have the answers and far from trying to “improve” on it, we should be learning from and mimicking Nature.
The Pollocks have been farming at Gibliston for over 100 years. Now they are selling their wonderful grass-fed, antibiotic-free beef and lamb and vegetables at their Farmshop at Ardross – which was voted the Best in Britain in 2012! I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with them.
