Something Is In The Air!!!

This is the “off season” for me as a CSA Farmer. I will continue to accept Submissions from families who want to join our CSA for 2022 Harvest Season and several new ones have already arrived in our Inbox. But since our veggies are done for the season, I now have the time to really get into “deep dives” which is a sort of hobby for me. I will not bore you with all of the topics I am currently attempting to absorb, however, the following discussion is important to us as farmers and as humans on Planet Earth!

This may seem an odd question to ask but how many of you remember fireflies lighting up the meadows just after dusk? Flower gardens buzzing with bees?  Flocks of migrating birds? The annoying bug splattered windshield of your vehicle after driving along a country road? And landline telephones–actually connected to the wall receptacle?

“Something Is in the Air” is a short, fact-based, science-filled film on radio frequency radiation (RF).  It contains interviews with some of the best scientists, including Martin Pall and Dariusz Leszczynski. All fruit and vegetable pollination is dependent on electromagnetic communication — between bees and flowers.  It is not hyperbole to say that without the bees, we have no food! It is not just the bees. Electricity is the foundation of all life! All living beings are electrochemical systems that use low frequency EMFs (electromagnetic frequencies) in everything from protein folding through cellular communication to nervous system function. And imposing even a very weak EMF signal on a living being has the possibility of interfering with normal function.

If you want to go deeper into the “loss of bees” aka the “ disappearing disease” and “colony collapse disorder” and various influenza epidemics and pandemics, there are many other sources which go into the history of radio frequency radiation. The bees first began disappearing at the dawn of the radio age in 1901. Yes! 1901. On the small island lying off England’s southern coast, where Marconi sent the world’s first long-distance radio transmission, the honey bees began to vanish. By 1906, the island, then host to the greatest density of radio transmissions in the world, was almost empty of bees.

As in many instances, the problem for the telecommunications industry is liability. This problem is based on the fact that the selling of cellular phones is, and always has been, based on lies and deception. This concept of consumer products which are not “safe” is a lot to get one’s mind around; but we are not talking about just cell phone technology, rather also the WiFi, the baby monitor, the Bluetooth, and the microwave oven. Did you know some forward thinking countries have halted all 5G rollout and all new technology (think “the internet of things”)? For the complete story read The Invisible Rainbow: A History of Electricity and Life by Arthur Firstenberg. For an abbreviated version, check out the site https://www.cellphonetaskforce.org/newsletters/ where you will find: The Most Dangerous Technology Ever Invented, Parts I, II, and III provided in five (5) languages as this is a world wide event!

My friend and neighbor, Mary Anne Tierney, filmed (in our living room!) a live segment of the streaming TV show for the Children’s Health Defense, The Empower Hour with Zen Honeycutt. Children’s Health Defense (CHD) is a non-profit organization founded by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.. CHD published Newsletters can be found on the previous link. Zen Honeycutt is the founder of  Mom’s Across America. Mary Ann founded the non-profit organization SafeTech Kids NC which is attempting to bring awareness to and remove Wi-Fi from NC schools and instead have the schools hard-wired due to the EMFs affecting children’s still growing brains and health. Her business is Blue Ridge EMF Solutions. A great amount of information on this complex issue is freely available on the internet from various sources.

I realize this topic may not be pleasant to consider. We like our technology! The speed of 5G, the allure of smart phones, tablets, the “internet of things,” gaming, and the possibility “augmented reality” are appealing to many in our society. I have always been an early adapter of technology; but after spending time in the garden, I found myself making changes to live more in harmony with Nature. I strongly feel that as responsible Citizens, we need to pay attention to the issues which have a real impact on our lives. It is very easy to become distracted in today’s world with ‘red herrings’ provided by intellectuals and policy wonks. Study the bees and their intricate dances. Consider the importance of the work these tiny insects provide for humans when the foundation of life is not unnecessarily impeded. Once you understand the delicate balance, you cannot UN-KNOW this information.

Robert and I farm in a manner so as to keep our land as wild as possible. We do not use pesticides or herbicides. We are keeping green space in Buncombe County and Western North Carolina. Robert and I want to continue growing fresh, nutritious, local food for our community with the help of the bees and insects. Please help by sharing this information to bring a new level of awareness.
