Learn how agriculture works in harmony with nature and how to improve yields, reduce cultivation, eliminate weeds, pests and diseases and improve crop responses to weather while harvesting both carbon dioxide and nitrogen from the atmosphere and building these into the humus in our soils.
Quantum Agriculture is a four-fold farming system first developed by Hugh Lovel in 1986 as a research project for Union Agricultural Institute in Blairsville, Georgia. Based on observation of nature with deep respect for life, this system is being used by thousands of farmers around the globe.
Education programs include:
Biochemical Sequence: Understanding How Plants Grow
Biological: Increasing Life in the Soil
Biodynamic: Organzing Soil and Atmosphere
Quantum Agriculture Technologies: Attuning, Harmonising and Stabilising Your Farm and Surrounding Communities
Welcome to the Quantum Agriculture global network of friends, farmers, earth restorians!
Hugh Lovel is a farmer and an international consultant to dairy farms, graziers, broadacre grain growers and fruit and vegetable producers. As a multidisciplinary scientist, Hugh has introduced comprehensive soil testing using both the Albrecht approach and a total acid digest test that more clearly reveals what is actually present in soils. Above all he has been a leading pioneer of the new science of Quantum Agriculture.
Hugh Lovel is the author of A Biodynamic Farm, for Growing Wholesome Food and Quantum Agriculture: Biodynamics and Beyond. He is the original designer of the Field Broadcaster quantum technology and the Quantum Radionic Analyser. His articles appear in “Acres USA”, related organic farming periodicals such as “Acres Australia” and biodynamic journals around the world
Initially Hugh gained 30 years of broad experience in biodynamic farming while operating a market garden farm and the first CSA in Georgia. His farm was home to the annual South-East Biodynamic Conferences for 12 years. Hugh migrated to Australia in 2005 to teach, consult and write. Hugh served for 6 years on the national board of Biodynamic Agriculture Australia, .
He and his wife Shabari Bird are the founders of Quantum Agriculture Consultancy and live in Australia and the US.
Shabari is a passionate, inspiring, brilliant woman with a heart of genrosity and compassion. Her lifetime devotion to living in rememberance of the Sacredness of Life, of breath, of water, of soil, of our atmosphere
Shabari is passionate about Agro Homeopathy and has generated conference calls with experts around the globe. Shabari Bird’s husband and friend of 38 years, Hugh Lovel has inspired her to teach: AGRICULTURE CAN BE FREE– How your local weeds become gifts to your farm and gardens through fermentation processes which dynamically transform them into fertilizers, insecticides, and herbicides.
Shabari Bird Lovel is an expert in fermentation. Fermentation dynamically enhances life energy in substances. Shabari’s father Ray Boland taught her how to make European style sauerkraut when she was 15, Shabari teaches How to Make: Natto to prevent osteoporosis, Rice fermentation processes to create Dosa, Koji, Miso, Sake, Sake pickles, Nukazuke pickles. Shabari’s authentic Korean Kimchee is greatly prized by her friends.
Fermented foods became one Shabari’s passions when she was curing herself from terminal cancer at age 24. Although told she would not live out six months, Shabari instead chose life by eating nutritive dense foods and juices. She augmented her recovery with homeopathy, Cherokee Indian herbal formulas, and purification techniques, humble prayers and with God’s Grace. She was cancer free in less than 18 months. With this lifestyle change her passion for Biodynamic and organic agriculture arose. She was the first to introduce her neighbour farmer Hugh Lovel to Biodynamic methods and his mentor Peter Esher.
Enhancing her spiritual life also became a necessity for survival from cancer. She became a student of Dr Rammurti Mishra who was a medical doctor/yogi who authored Fundamentals of Yoga and Textbook of Yoga Psychology. Shabari worked directly with Dr Mishra in his healing practice and also acted as an administrator and program director for his Ananda Ashram in Harriman, NY, USA.
Shabari has founded numerous schools including: The Native Wisdom School as part of the University of East-West Unity, sponsoring over 100 workshops and ceremonies with native and indigenous teachers;
To enhance her 3 children’s education, Shabari co-founded with Susan Jones the first Waldorf School in the southern US, now a 13 year school in Atlanta, Ga.
At her mentor Robert Mueller’s request , Shabari founded the Gaia Institute in Atlanta, Ga. Dr Mueller is the former Assistant Secretary-General of the United Nations; Recipient of the UNESCO Peace Award and co-founder of the UN University of Peace in Costa Rica.
Shabari founded the Sacred Drums of the Earth in 1985, fulfilling the vision she received while vision seeking (she fasted 3 days and nights without food and water by a waterfall deep in the forest).
For over a dozen years Shabari and volunteers produced Sacred Drums of the Earth Gatherings and founded drum council circles around the globe. The Sacred Drums of the Earth with Shabari, Jimmy Cliff and 100 Global drummers opened the Global Forum at the Earth Summit in Rio in 1992.
