Dr. Christo Miliotis.
Dr.Christo first discovered Biodynamic Farming in 1971 and practiced this form of enhanced organics for 5 years. He then went on to study Medicine and completed his studies in 1986.After working in complementary medicine in the areas of herbal, acupuncture, homeopathy and nutritional modalities he went into cancer research at the John Curtin School of post graduate Medical Research.
In the course of this work, it became apparent that people are exposed to many toxic chemicals through common practice agriculture, which are in large part responsible for the significant degradation of our land, rivers, oceans and atmosphere. Common practice agriculture is also complicit in the rise of cancer and other degenerative and fatal conditions in human and animal populations. Furthermore conventional agriculture contributes up to 30% of green house gases to our atmosphere. In short, current farming practices are making the planet, Her systems and resident plant, insect and animal life, sick.
In contrast, organic and biodynamic agricultural practices captures carbon dioxide and puts it back into the soil, improving soil fertility as well as water holding capacity, as well as producing fruit and vegetables with significantly higher nutrient content. Reviewing the research left Christo in no doubt that the future of humanity hinges on our ability to implement sustainable, organically based farming techniques.
In service of future humanity, Christo is running a range of workshops designed to promote the use of composting and the introduction of healthy microbial cultures into the backyard soil in homes and gardens across Sydney. In addition, he doing a Masters in Agriculture at Sydney University, developing strategies and systems to remove carbon from the atmosphere, and returned to the soil of mother earth.>
