Animal Place (www.animalplace.org) has been providing refuge to neglected farmed animals since 1989 on their sanctuary in California. More recently, they launched a 3-acre veganic farm, a working proof of the concept that domesticated animals are not necessary to grow food. In conjunction with the resident animal ambassadors, Animal Place’s veganic farm educates visitors about how their food is produced and demonstrates a healthier, more compassionate way of eating and living.
A workshop in veganic forest gardening will be offered in the province of Québec in May, 2013.
We are in Victoriaville, a small town in Quebec Province, Canada. It’s February 28th 2006, Manfred Wenz just arrived from Germany to share his experience of different sustainable and regenerative farming practices.

The systemic approach is a method of breeding plant varieties that are hearty and resistant to all forms of stress, such as disease and drought. In the systemic approach, traditional principles of plant breeding are used, though the plants are subjected to a wide range of stresses, and only the most resistant plants are selected for continued breeding. The systemic approach offers a promising alternative to GMO’s, and it produces results that go beyond our expectations.
