The Natural Way: Fruiticulture
As humans are biologically, physiologically and anatomically best suited to a fruit-based diet, and because fruit is the best source of carbohydrate fuel for our cells, and because well-grown fruits are nearly nutritionally complete, and because nothing tastes more delicious than luscious fruits, and because every species of animal that eats its natural biological diet does not experience the toxemic and degenerative disease that humans do (unless fed cooked food and exposed to chemical pollutants), and because fruit trees beautify and improve every aspect of our ecosphere, we will be wise to replace agricultural lands that are devoted to grain and livestock farming with fruit-centric agriculture—”Fruiticulture.”
Fruiticulture Fully Defined
Fruiticulture is a conscientious, civilized way of living in harmony with Nature, consonant with human’s natural dietetic character: frugivore. It is a culture of living reverentially, wholistically, symbiotically, synergistically, healthfully, and sustainably, employing biomimicry, diverse organic horticulture, and complementary “green” design practices, and establishing local and global communities and economies based on fruit, vegetable, nut and seed growing and eating.
Fruiticulture is the most sustainable form of agriculture for our planet. Its method is planting the gamut of vegetable crops under and between diverse fruit and nut trees, employing site-generated green waste mulch, compost, worm castings and locally-sourced mineral-rich rock powder amendments as fertilizers. This naturally improves the fertility of the soil ecosystem, returning more to the soils than is removed, while sequestering CO2, reducing greenhouse gases, helping to stabilize the climate, and creating food forests of abundance. Farmers can collect the seeds of a portion of their fruit and vegetable crops and grow independently of seed suppliers. Food forests would enhance every aspect of life on planet Earth!
“David’s idea for writing Fruiticulture with Don is a grand slam homer, as it brings us all back to our naturally healthful ways of eating sweet and juicy fruit, to living in peace and harmony with Nature, to the nurturing embrace of Hygiea, the goddess of health—enabling us to live long and healthy lives by giving humanity and our planet the nurturing care it truly needs. I think Fruiticulture is the most important “planetary healers manual” since Viktoras Kulvinskas’s seminal Survival Into the 21st Century book of 1975, and sharing Fruiticulture may be the single most important thing you ever do for your loved ones.”
