We are dedicated to promoting sustainable living and empowering our readers to make informed choices that positively impact the planet.
WELCOME TO ONE BELVEDERE ECOLOGICAL FARMING
From its inception, One Belvedere’s team has had its heart set on promoting by example the most environmentally friendly and socially conscious farming practices in use today. Standing at the forefront of ecological science in combining agricultural innovation with age-old farming traditions has been the main motive and leading concern lying at the very basis of our project. Since Spring 2023, One Belvedere has signed a collaboration with Azzera for Carbon footprint calculation.
Drawing its roots from the insightful research of Japanese farmer and agricultural philosopher Masanobu Fukuoka (1913-2008) and the work of the father of holistic management, Allan Savory, as well as a few épioneers who addressed the climate crisis since the 1970’s, regenerative agriculture is today recognized as being the one and only means for implementing the most sustainable farming methods we know of, keeping in mind that the alternatives are both harmful to the planet and to human integrity.
Agraoecology seeks to find tailor-made solutions to local problems. It encourages the use of collective knowledge, combining the latest agronomic science with farmers’ practical know-how. By supporting farmers’ autonomy and adaptability, agroecology helps to put producers and communities at the forefront of ecological and social change.
“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”
Regenerative agriculture approaches farming and its repercussions along 6 main guiding principles (though other sub-categories can be found throughout):
Minimizing soil disturbance and soil loss.
Carbon sequestration and CO2 reduction; preserving and restoring natural resources; reducing and replacing off-farm inputs.
Water conservation and monitoring; depolluting processes.
Maximizing plants diversity, both through crop rotation and cover crops.
Long-term viability and livelihood benefits for farmers.
Circular and social solidarity economic model.
"You can solve all the world's problems in a garden."
WHAT IS PERMACULTURE?
Design of human-scale, sustainable systems which are stable, efficient, and resilient. Regenerative agriculture is one of these systems. Permaculture is based on three requirements:
CARE FOR THE EARTH
CARE FOR PEOPLE
CARE FOR THE FUTURE
TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR ACTIONS
"So plant your own gardens and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers."
Jorge Luis Borges
WHAT DO WE GROW AT ONE BELVEDERE?
"The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings."
