In this paper, through photos of my friends, I will cover only one of the basic elements of healthy, pristine and luxurious sustainable living, which is practically available to every person on the Planet. And that is FOOD AND NUTRITION. Later, through photodocumentation, I will also address other elements of sustainable living that can be achieved today.

This is how the GREAT MAN said:

… “How can you buy or sell the sky or the heat of the earth?
… If we don’t have the freshness of the air and the clarity of the water, how can you buy it?

You need to teach your children that the soil under their feet is the ashes of their grandfathers.

So that they will respect the earth, tell your children that the earth is related to us. Teach your children, as we do with ours, that the earth is our mother.

Whatever drives the earth will also drive the sons of the earth.
If a man spits on the ground he spits on himself.

We know this: the earth does not belong to man; man belongs to the earth.
We know that.

All things are connected as blood that unites the family …
Whatever makes the earth come, it will also bring about the sons of the earth.
Man does not weave the fabric of life; he’s just a waist in it.
Whatever he does to the weaver he does to himself …. “

Excerpt from a message sent in 1854 by a Seattle Indian chief to a white man – an American governor who demanded that he sell him Indian territory.


The basic condition for sustainable living and thus for sustainable development is a change in behavior. This means only one thing; CHANGE IN HUMAN BEHAVIOR AS THE GREATEST DAMAGE OF THE “MODERN” WORLD. In other words, changing the way we behave towards the environment; 

FROM DESTRUCTIVE TO PROTECTIVE. Consumption is the most important element in the sustainable development of the environment and sustainable living. This means; that it is urgently necessary to change the unscrupulous consumer mentality of a small group of 7,500,000,000 of us on this planet, and to direct that enormous and unnecessary consumption towards the moderation and modesty of the consumption of natural resources, which will meet only the basic and essential human needs for a healthy, decent and normal life and not a desiring desire for some luxury and luxurity.

Thus; education for a normal, healthy and sustainable life on Earth assumes that our planet Earth is a very complex and sensitive system of life, while man is a whole life – physical and spiritual, understanding that education enables and provides a chance for survival, coexistence and culture of life if man does not want its own downfall, so the existing insensitive, soulless, arrogant world, a world without ethics, needs the image of the “NEW WORLD” as a new paradigm. MEANS A TOTALLY NEW, TRUE, RIGHT EKOETICS. MODERN, RESCUE AND SUSTAINABLE ECOETICS NEEDS TO DISCUSS THE ECOSYSTEM DISCUSSION AND RESOURCES TO INCLUDE THE POLITICAL-LEGAL ASPECT OF TODAY TO SERIOUSLY, EARLY AND unreservedly. TODAY’S WORLD, PARTICULARLY THE PART THAT RUNS ONLY FOR MORE PROFITS AND PROFITS THAT DO NOT USE ANY PART OF THE WORLD NEEDS ONLY A PART OF THE EARTH 2 x 0.8 x 2m, AND NOTHING ELSE. You need to think about it, think about it and just think. Remember what the Indian chief said to the white man.

Hereafter be the original text of a friend of mine who is fully living the richest, with nature and in harmony with nature, the most luxurious possible life of the one person the “richest” would wish.

My friend Biljana’s text was edited by Radoje Jankovic for this article and educational lesson in ecology and the environment for sustainable living.

Sl. 1. Bilja u svojoj velikoj bašti i voćnjaku u nastavku bašte….
FIG. 1. Bilja in its large garden and orchard in the continuation of the garden

Let’s all go to the garden!
“The new season of sowing cabbage, peppers, Andean strawberries and eggplants, potatoes, onions, salads and other home-grown vegetables begins.
So, what are you waiting for?”

This is purely domestic, primeval, centuries-old production of vegetables of all kinds in our own vegetable gardens without the use of any chemical, harmful and toxic agents during production.

Today, this method of production practiced by peoples around the world for centuries has been called “organic food production” by many “modern” experts, though many of these “experts” have never even set foot in gardens and gardens, let alone grown vegetables.

It is very beautiful, when man, accepts nature and everything in it as a creation of God where there is no enmity, but only, the fact that everyone is doing their job!

It turns out that the smokes are more harmless than the individual neighbors. Our lot is not fenced yet. So I nicely put together two moldings, made a large cross, placed it in the middle of the garden to be visible and planted a jewel to hang out … Daddy asks me “What’s this for you?” I told him: Notice of surveillance service! I haven’t noticed any damage so far, though we’re still fighting the waste-throwing battles! Somehow the neighbor’s undegradable rubbish ends up in the shore … It’ll improve …

Too often I have to explain to people that gardening is not just about food production, it is much more than that. It is important that you touch the ground, breathe in its scent, create your own hands …

Sl. 2. Lubenice i paradajz zajedno u bašti iz snova.
FIG. 2. Watermelons and tomatoes together in the dream garden.

I am a pioneer of motivational gardening that addresses fears through contact with plants and practical realization. My biggest helpers in this mission are radishes. From your first pickled radish to your own orchard is a short trip! I and these plants have a wonderful collaboration crowned with sisterhood.

Sl. 3. Kako ne uživati u svojoj bašti, delu svojih ruku i voćnjaku sa izvornim domaćim voćem…
FIG. 3. How Not To Enjoy Your Garden, Part Of Your Hands And Orchard With Original Homemade Fruit …

Will you grow tomatoes?
How do you defend a carrot from a fly?
Will you be able to grow seedlings?
How much time do you need because you don’t have one?
But I can’t do it !?
Frequently Asked Questions …
Stop, breathe, indulge, do not condemn yourself to failure, do not be afraid, be magnificent, aware of your ability because the power is within you and greater than you know.
I base motivational gardening on several important truths …

The power of a bacterium:
A joint study by the University of London and Brussels found that earth, its odor, and its contact with it, act similarly to antidepressants. Behind this lies a wonderful bacterium called Micobacteriym vaccae, which we bring in through food and breathe in as we work. An incubation of three weeks is required yes the positive impact of this non-pathogenic bacterium on your body begins. It stimulates the secretion of the hormones happiness, serotonin, and thus rejuvenates us and relieves stress.

Naravno, znam da u mnogim zemljama sveta narod ima mnoge svoje vrste povrtarskih biljaka koje su ukusne, zdrave i ne zagađene veštačkim džubrivima i aditivima.
FIG. 10. Nothing is nicer than collecting lots of vegetables for your diet and your family from your garden. Look at the beauty of the colors of my friend Biljana’s various vegetable plants. Of course, I know that in many countries of the world, people have many of their own types of vegetable plants that are tasty, healthy and not contaminated with artificial fertilizers and additives.
Sl. 11. Zima je duga. Sva zimnica spremljena od prirodnog, zdravog i ukusnog domaćeg povrća. Slični proizvodi iz marketa industrijske proizvodnje ne mogu ni da priđu kvalitetu ovih domaćih proizvoda. Industrijski proizvodi ovog tipa su natrpani svakakvim hemikalijama, pojačavačima ukusa, boja, sredstvima za održanje svežine… Ovde toga nema, samo prirodni sastojci iz sopstvene bašte.
FIG. 11. Winter is long. All winter prepared from natural, healthy and delicious home-made vegetables. Similar products from the industrial production market cannot even match the quality of these domestic products. Industrial products of this type are packed with all sorts of chemicals, flavor enhancers, colors, freshness preservatives. .. There is no such thing here, just natural ingredients from your own garden.
Sl. 12. Domaća visoko kvalitetna paprika uzgajena u čistim prirodnim uslovima domaće bašte.
FIG. 12. Homemade high quality peppers grown in the pure natural conditions of the home garden.

Since 2013, doctors in London have been prescribing gardening as a therapy for depression, arthritis, asthma and anxiety. According to research by the National Academy of Science, Micobacteriym vaccae has an anti-inflammatory (anti-inflammatory) effect and helps treat tuberculosis. Based on research by Dorothy Matthew and Susan Jenks this bak teria has a positive effect on intellectual ability by stimulating faster flow of thought, especially in children.

The Power of the Present Moment:
Gardening focuses you on the present moment because you are present and focused. Being present in the Moment is not something that is implied, it is an exercise. We have this problem with fears, we are worried about the future. We are constantly in the past or in the future and it hinders us to feel the security of the Present Moment. There is gardening therapy, the plants require a touch that “reminds” you to focus. You become aware that you are cared for and that the future is unpredictable, and this is the only way to reach Heaven in a straight line.

FIG. 21. See the beauty of homemade beans grown in natural, healthy conditions without any chemicals.

The Power of Practical Realization:
Our need to feed our family is the most natural feeling. The lessons of civilization entail a great distance between man and nature, which causes uncertainty and fear in him. We have a need to make it happen because it alleviates the feeling of insecurity. Vegetable plants are able to make you practically their fruit very quickly, in the same season. The radishes are ripe in 25 days and this juicy fruit has been brought to your hands just the one that will lead you to an independent household. You become aware that it is easy, loving and playful. Why life if we don’t play, so wake up that dormant kid in you.

The Power of the Art of Loving:
Can We Love? You know, first you need to love yourself enough. If we are a drop from the ocean of God then God is in us. Then we love ourselves too. If we do not love ourselves and God is in us, then how much do we love God? Look back and see your own magnificence. Plants help you in this, because according to Oleander, they are the only ones that can teach you the love of the art of domestication and energy communication.

So why not go back to gardening? Don’t embrace that single para-son in you? All you need is a piece of earth, a handful of seeds, a worldview from the angle of Rudolf Steiner (read Anastasia), the energy that channels love and you write your own fairy tale. You will admit to yourself that you are happier than when you spoke to your plants. I “read” people according to their environmental awareness. As Alfred Austin said “show me your garden and I’ll tell you who you are.”

The new season begins. And this is exactly your season where you started laughing and being in love.

How to defend yourself against snakes under the straw?
I’m a beginner in gardening. Last year I mulched the garden with a straw. However, a couple of times during the weeding, I met with skis. They escaped and ‘plunged’ into the straw like waves. I didn’t give up on gardening, but throughout the work, I felt scared. I would very much like to get rid of that fear and approach the business with the pleasure I had before meeting these uninvited guests, or rather, the hosts.

I will try to answer.
Fear is always caused by “ignorance” ie. ignorance of the “object of fear.”

Smok (Aesculapian snake, the whitefish – now Zamenis longissimus, formerly Elaphe longissima)  is a non-toxic snake. He lives in dry, sunny places. It is wintering in holes in the ground. Good weather (or too much soil moisture) “pulls it” to the surface. For breeding he finds nice places in the form of compost or hay, in which he lays eggs (white, pear shaped) in the middle of the year. It feeds on mice, voles, moles, young birds, sometimes squirrels.
This is where the most important part of the answer lies.This means that talc is also a keeper of the garden because it protects it from rodents that can cause damage. Not to be misunderstood, all of these animals are very important factors in the natural whole, with some protecting the garden, as much as we can without killing them. If the tallow is permanently expelled, a small, perhaps larger increase in the number of animals that the tallow feeds may occur.

The old people smoked snakes with smoke. They would attach some of the “rag” they put on a long branch and pull the litter …

Not to long, the moose can bite, but man is not his prey. Even more, he, like many animals, is afraid of man. How could you not ?! You will only be attacked in self-defense.

Personally, I practice “communication” with all living things within our garden, so whenever I start the season on my return to the garden I say

“Hello everyone! I have arrived. Fear not. I wish you well. If God gives, the garden begets both for us and for you.”
Pheasant and pheasant are coming to me, the birds already know me, so we chirp together, the wasps and bees are there, but everyone is looking at their jobs … You can protect the compost hole with dense nets (primarily because of the voles) and by cutting branches of spiky roses to the bottom. Smuk will certainly find his place if he has just found a “food source.” Even climbing trees is no stranger to him …

Maybe someone else has a different approach.
I function the way I write.
Don’t be afraid of skiing. Mow around the hay so that the paths you tread are walkable (not stepping on it) and sing.
You can also thank him for keeping your garden safe.

Yes, it’s said; about environmental ethics …
… but there is almost no use for that environmental ethic in practice and life.

There is no use, because there is no responsibility for the environment or for life. Thousands upon thousands of evidence with catastrophic consequences are seen worldwide.

Yes, I will not sin my soul; HAS THE RIGHT OF ENVIRONMENTAL ETHICS. About one type of environmental ethics – ETHICS OF NATURAL, INDIVIDUAL FOOD PRODUCTION ON THE PERIODIC SUSTAINABILITY PRINCIPLES, I write in this scientific debate that my friend encouraged me to illustrate with this discussion of original photographs and her story of environmental ethics and sustainable living. Of course, I have a lot of my original photographs that I will use to write the following discussions about ecology, the environment and sustainable living, and thus sustainable development.

It is important to emphasize that the “environment” is no longer a mere object at its disposal, but a real nature. Man, if he can be called a man, is at the same time his (her) integral part and, most importantly, it depends on him, and if he depends, he must have responsibility and great obligations towards him. However, this and such a man, by his overall behavior, makes it clear that he has no obligations and responsibilities. AND, WHAT NOW, TO WORK WITH SUCH A MAN? I have no answer. Do you have an answer my friend and around the world?

It is said; “Responsibility for the environment necessarily presupposes some relations between the subject and the object, including the questions: who is responsible (subject), what is responsible for (area), before whom (whom) is responsible (instance).” Do you know who is responsible and who is responsible?

They also say; that in addition to moral responsibility, there is legal, social, political, professional, ethical responsibility … DOES THESE RESPONSIBILITIES REALLY BE IN THE REALITY OF OUR TODAY?

What is the goal and what are the results, according to today’s catastrophic state of the environment around the world, grounded (as they say) through environmental theory, ie. environment, such as: environmental ethics, ethics of responsibility, ecological ethics, holistic ecology, biocentric, practical philosophy of nature…

I see almost no results, except for individuals such as the example in this scientific study, who show it in their personal work around the world. This and such examples by  The whole world, which does not renounce a high standard of living, does not have a skeptical attitude towards modern science and technology that, within normal limits, shows that normal, healthy, useful and, above all, living on the right ethical principles in the harmony of man and nature is possible. I will talk about other elements of sustainability and sustainable living in one of the following scientific discussions.

According to this, this is where the man himself put the ecosystem in the center and not himself. This is about ecological-humanistic ethics at work and in practice.

And, of course, that every aspect of ecological ethics can, if they wish, exclude a person with his enormous demands and aspirations from the center, and put the environment and the environment and NATURE in the center.

When nature disappears, there is only one man with his demands and aspirations.

Sl. 23. Pocket melon. Kolekcionarski zanimljiva ali sa  ukusom ništa naročito.
FIG. 23. Pocket melon. Collectible interesting but with nothing special in taste.

Of course man has the right to nature as his own basis of life because he is a part of it. This right of man to nature, however, does not imply his unscrupulous exhaustion, ie. turning it into a consumable good and a huge landfill of garbage and waste, because man himself will be converted to garbage and thus become a natural waste, but means the optimal need for his own reproductive basis.

If the most responsible people around the world would identify with nature, then caring for the natural world would at the same time become part of taking care of themselves.

Sl. 24. I ovo je jedna vrsta domaćeg paradajza
FIG. 24. And this is one kind of homemade tomato
Sl. 25. Domaće grožđe. Veoma ukusno, mirišljavo, dobro za jelo, sokove, vino, rakiju…
FIG. 25. Homemade grapes. Very tasty, fragrant, good for eating, juices, wine, brandy …
Sl. 26. Lepote boja domaćih mahunarica
FIG. 26. Beauty colors of homemade legumes

Of course, a holistic approach to ecocentrism negates the entire effort that man has made so far to change and improve living conditions on the Planet. There are thousands and thousands of examples worldwide. At the same time, he points out that a small part of humanity has forgotten how catastrophic it is to be dependent on nature, how much it is at the same time but beautiful, magical, gentle and also cruel, there is no insensitivity to the suffering, the help, the sadness and his needs. Nature, according to its normal millennial natural processes, daily warns an unscrupulous man, the greatest pest on the entire planet.
In spite of all this, economics offers man salvation in the form of a false and seductive image of some “future” free from the compulsion of labor and material scarcity. WHAT ARE THE IRONIES OF SUCH ECONOMY ???

With the unlimited use of the propulsive energy of state egoism of limited reality, today’s devastating economy has, in the variant of the “industrial development paradigm”, managed to master this still beautiful Blue Planet and colonize the entire living world on it.

The overwhelming resistance of this catastrophic illusion, through a wide range of “arguments”, explains why all the attempts of many intelligent people around the world to make the rescue of the environment and the human environment the central PRINCIPLE OF OUR CIVILIZATION and not as a PERIPHERAL PRINCIPLE have failed.
Economists around the world view environmental goods as a gift of nature, not a finite resource (the exploitation of which is governed by some kind of “economic rationality” law).

Economists call environmental costs “negative externalities” instead of PRIMARY COSTS, which they actually are. Economists are the pests of today, pushing environmental costs away from the state, the consumer or future generations, forgetting that those future generations may not even be on this planet of ours. “Economists” believe that the success of a country, measured by a kind of “growth in the gross domestic product, in some conditions of ever-increasing needs, is necessary, and they perceive the UNWANTED NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES as a necessary evil, without knowing that they are a” necessary evil “.

What matters to economists is a matter of common sense, for most of the human population across the globe, and for environmentalists aware of all the catastrophic consequences, is inexplicably unreasonable. Economists forget that they are just one minor group of people in the world causing untold damage, and as a result of that damage are the disasters that happen every day across this planet.

If economists were the basic elements of environmental councils:
– knowledge of nature and society
– the damaging nature balance, and
– the need for environmental protection,
as well as conscience, and especially the willingness to engage in that protection and to treat the environment in which they live responsibly and environmentally, would make the world much better, more beautiful and more interesting for life. Unfortunately, this is not the case with economists (honor of rare exceptions).

What is the benefit of the World Conference on Environment and Development, held in June 1992 in Brazil, which adopted some documents such as the Rio Declaration, the Climate Convention, the Convention on Biodiversity and the 21st Century Agenda ?

The “benefit” of these documents with catastrophic consequences for nature and the environment (witnessed by all of us together) is present worldwide today. It is a catastrophic state of nature all over the world.

One of the most important conditions for “sustainable development” should be “sustainable living”, which is not the case in today’s practice.
