To stop global warming, we need to heal the soil. Regenerative farming can do that by using natural methods that lower emissions and increase carbon sequestration. Join with us to push for more regenerative farming. By restoring the soil and capturing carbon, regenerative farming can be a powerful ally in the fight against global warming. Regenerative farming not only nourishes the soil, but also cools the planet by reducing emissions and storing carbon. Click the link and read the short explanation to see why it is important. Regenerative farming not only nourishes the soil, but also cools the planet by reducing emissions and storing carbon. Mother Nature Festival Live Inc. pushes for more regenerative farming..

Please join with us at home or at your business to compost. Here is how you can do it for yourself.
Composting needs air, water, and a balanced mix of green and brown materials. Here’s why:
Air is to the compost pile is crucial. Oxygen supports the activity of microorganisms that break down organic matter. An uncovered pile receives airflow, which speeds up decomposition.
If you cover the pile tightly, it could lead to a lack of oxygen, resulting in an anaerobic, smelly mess.
Moisture (Water): Compost needs the right moisture level. Too much or too little can affect the process. An open pile allows rainwater to naturally hydrate it. However, if your climate is excessively wet, consider using a hardcover (like a bin lid or plywood) to keep excess rainwater out while maintaining airflow.

Covering Options:
Some people use tarps to cover compost piles successfully, but it depends on the pile’s contents and moisture level. If your pile was too wet initially, trapping that moisture under a tarp could lead to problems. Constructing the pile under an overhang (e.g., the side of a house or shed) or adding an overhang to the bin can also help control moisture.

The original Mother Nature music recording written by Gary and his brother Cecil Ray Fillingame Jr. in 1972. The song was recorded by Gary in the mid 1970s in the fabled Acuff-Rose studios in Nashville, Tennessee. The music recording was released as a single record in 1977 on the Frame House Records label. Gary is a pioneer in raising awareness about the dangers of global warming through his music. He co-wrote the song Mother Nature, with his younger brother, in the early 1970s, which was one of the first songs to address the environmental crisis. The words and music were written by Cecil Ray Fillingame Jr. and Gary Revel. 🎵

APRIL 24, 2024

Three guys walk into a bar and come up with an idea to help counter the effects of climate change.

It might sound like a joke, but that’s exactly how George Broadwell, Gary Revel and Richard Faith came up with the idea for Mother Nature Festival Live Inc.
“I told Richard and George about the project to stop global warming and to help Mother Nature,” Revel said Monday via a Zoom call. “That’s where Mother Nature Festival Live Inc. got its start.”
Close to four years ago, Revel was performing at GS Steamers Bar and Grill, located inside the Broadwell-owned Clarion Hotel and Suites Riverfront on East First Street in Oswego. Revel has long been focused on environmental issues, writing and recording the song “Mother Nature” in the 1970s.
The group held a benefit concert at Curtis Manor in Oswego in April 2022. The concert featured performances from local favorites Frostbit Blue among others.
The Mother Nature Festival Live Inc. held a press conference on Monday to coincide with Earth Day at the Clarion Hotel to discuss the rising cost of fertilizer and how the group could reduce the effects of climate change.
Joining in the room with Faith were Lee Newman, associate professor and chair of chemistry at SUNY Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) in Syracuse, and Phil MacArthur of the Tree Stewards program in Oswego. Revel and other board members joined the press conference via Zoom.
“This innovative project, developed in collaboration with Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) posts, American Legion posts and VA hospitals, represents a significant step toward revitalizing domestic fertilizer production while creating employment opportunities in rural communities,” said Faith, executive director for the group, in his speech opening the press conference. “By harnessing the expertise and resources of our veterans, we aim to enhance soil health, promote carbon sequestration and foster sustainable agricultural practices.”
Faith said one of the issues confronting farmers is arid soil, and they’re getting limited returns from federal subsidies. “Farmers are reporting they are harvesting the bumper crop instead of leaving them in the field to provide nutrients,” said Faith, “as they are uncertain if the soil will sustain another crop due to extremely dry conditions.”
Another aim of the group is to get homeless veterans involved in improving the environment.
“We will enlist homeless veterans to participate in the restoration and maintenance of American forests,” Faith said, “in alignment with the president’s executive order F, in the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 to improve forest health.”
The group is promoting a national biofertilizer program to harness material waste to create nutrient rich compost consisting of living organisms. Faith said the United States has relied on foreign contributions to get much of its fertilizer. “America used to get 40% of its fertilizer from Ukraine,” Faith said. “Since the war, that has stopped. The government has put $500 million in grants for innovative programs saying, ‘how can we create fertilizer?’ This program will create millions and millions of gallons of bio-fertilizer, and we can save that money.”
The Mother Nature group wants to get college-age students involved because climate change will affect them more than older Americans. To that end, the group has had discussions with several colleges and universities to create an entry-level class called “saving the planet.”
“This will be a national appeal,” Faith said. “We’re all of the same mind. We really need to act., because we’re really on the precipice and I’m not kidding. This 101 course will be an accredited course.”
The group is putting together a community engagement committee to plan events to help spread awareness of global warming. Faith has also written a children’s book called “Bee Scared,” a book about disappearing bee colonies. The book has been translated into French and Swahili, and a Spanish version is on the way, Faith said. From Oswego County News Now, Paladium Times and Valley News

Why are we also at work addressing societal concerns? Social ills are actually societal problems that affect the social structure of society as a whole. These problems destroy social networking and the social justice ordering of people in society. Those problems can manifest as crimes and various forms of social disorder such as drug abuse, juvenile delinquency, prostitution, corruption, human trafficking,...etc. We believe that as we work to stop Global Warming we would be handicapped in that work if we did not recognize the societal needs of our planet. That is why we have the Human Rights Department of Mother Nature Festival Live Inc. Within that department we have the Border Action Division which is laser focused on the societal ills of planet Earth. If you would like to get involved, helping us with this department, or need help from the same, please use the contact form above. You can be specific as your communication will be held in confidence. Direct your communication to Founder: Gary Revel.
