When you look at the incredible landscape on planet Earth, all the different terrains, the varying soil conditions, the awesome water features, oceans, lakes, rivers, streams, the waterfalls, the different climates, the huge amounts of plants and groundcovers, the requirements are so varied. Can one fathom how big project that is? When God "designed" the landscape project for planet Earth he was so genius, he "designed" it in such a way that he would never have to show up at work. It is completely self sustained.
After years of back-breaking toil in ground ravaged by the effects of man-made growing systems, Paul Gautschi has discovered a taste of what God intended for mankind in the Garden of Eden. Some of the vital issues facing agriculture today include soil preparation, fertilization, irrigation, weed control, pest control, crop rotation, and PH issues. None of these issues exist in the unaltered state of nature or in Paul's gardens and orchards.
Paul says that the ground is a living organism, and as all living organisms the ground too has some sort of protection cover. We have skin to protect us, the animals have fur, fish have scales, birds have feathers, and the soil most of the time is covered with something. If you take the cover off the soil becomes vulnerable and it gets lost. Now the ground in the midwest looks almost scary. It's parched, cracked, hard, and almost looks like desert. There is no topsoil there because it's all blown or washed away. We're losing topsoil, and in nature it takes 100 years to build an inch of it.
Apparently it's OK to lose around four tons of soil, per acre, per year, but is the soil forming at that rate? When the soil erodes the organic matter erodes and all the nutrients that were in the soil erode and that's a resource that's not there anymore.
