You can help your fellow human, animals, trees, oceans etc. when you do such, you’re indirectly helping yourself; because you’re part of nature.

I recently adopted some livestock that was brought into the market for slaughter. I think you’ll like the story.

Three lucky sheep 🐑

Some stories I loved about farmers that rear goats and sheep in the time past includes how they gets raw materials for textile industries from their hairy bodies. But in my country, the story is different.

Most animal husbandry are mainly for meat. Though I’m not a vegan 🌱 but I cherish their beliefs and lifestyle. I don’t like hurting animals, or to the extent of killing them for meat.

My wife observes my judgment each time that my children catch birds or other animals; that I always warn them to make sure that they do not harm or kill them in the process of playing or examining them.

So recently, I decided to complete a circle ⭕️ in my home; how do I mean? I noticed that some of wastage from our farm produce were being thrown away; like cassava, yam, potato pills, and other perishables like vegetables 🍅. So I decided to fill that gap because I dislike wasting things.

Recycling is natural and should be encouraged

Remember my slogan; ‘Everything is useful’. I looked at how those spoilt vegetables could be useful, and the only thing that came to my mind was to get animals that can eat them, enjoy them and also produce manure for me for more crops out of my gardens.

For same purpose, I wanted to buy some livestock from my fellow farmers at my neighborhood, but I couldn’t because they’re scarcely found; our tribe is not known for husbandry. We’re majorly crop farmers.

One day, I decided to visit ‘animal park’; this is a place where cattle rearers brings their animals for sell and for slaughter. My purpose of going there was to buy some manure from them, and for my gardening. But reaching there, I found these three helpless friends in the picture.

Three rescued friends

I found them in a critical condition. They were transported several miles from the northern parts of Nigeria to the east were they’re meant to be slaughtered for meat. They’re so tired and thirsty, so sickly that some couldn’t stand on their feet. I was really touched as I felt their anguish.

Let me pause here and ask a question. Have you ever considered helping other creatures as a good moral to be encouraged? Many would prefer to render help to their fellow humans alone; but to me, help should be extended to everything. We’re part of nature; therefore, we’re obliged to help in fixing the earth by all possible means.

Back to our story. I decided to adopt those helpless animals and allow them the chance to live further. I approached the seller and rendered my intention to adopt them. He raised their amount to discourage me. I pleaded for a discount, though he didn’t do much, but I succeeded in adopting them eventually.

I first untied them and took them home. Now they’re enjoying their new home I think. When we got home that period, I noticed that they couldn’t recover from the shock they sustained from cruel maltreatment they received on the process of bundling them down to the east; I therefore called a veterinarian to attend to them.

They’re healthy again

Now they back to their feet, and are in good health. I hope they’re enjoying their stay with us. Of course they have responsibilities to accomplish; to eat and recycling those spoilt and broken yams and potatoes from my garden and farms, then I could utilize their waste products as good organic manure for my farming adventure.

Natural vs artificial ways of engaging nature in farming

I store food that could last for several years due to my method of farming; a natural way that I’ve decided to toll in my farming career. I don’t have much money to be investing in buying chemical fertilizers for my gardening, so I depend so much on my ability to create composts and on utilizing animals manure in my gardens.

Some of the advantages of farming this natural way is that it helped to boost and produce more organic food and healthy ones for that matter. Food gotten from such farms could stay longer when preserved than those used chemicals to plant.

Many people now come for my organic food

I’ve gained much reputation, more than my fellow farmers; all these are as result of how I’ve chosen to handle my farming career in a natural way. Those animals could become very helpful in return; being that I could be able to save reasonable manure from them. I’ve started utilizing manure from them in my home gardens. Would you like to see little about my home garden and how I utilize the manure from my new friends?

One of these days I’ll share with you on how to make a home garden 🪴, and huge health benefits of having such at your home, but for now, let me show you how I utilizes manure that I’ve recycled through the help of my new animal friends.

Animal manure gotten from my adopted friends

Life could be simple and enjoyable if only we could learn from nature on how to preserve a healthy environment, how to put everything where they fits in, and how to utilize everything around us, possibly naturally; without abuse.

Picture above is the process of utilizing those recycled waste from my farms which my animal friends has helped me to achieve. Now, I’m utilizing those things that could have been thrown away, they are becoming useful again in producing more healthy crops in my home gardening as indicated in the picture above.

I do spray them around my garden, and till the ground; this process is a way of having a good mixture of the sand and the manure which allows the manure to saturate the soil and also allows the roots of crops to be easily rooted.

My locally made tool used in breaking the ground for cropping

That’s my locally made digger; formed with stick and iron. Here, I’ve finished spraying those manure and now breaking the ground to form a mixture of the soil and the manure. At the end of this process, I’d water 🚿 the garden, plant my seedlings and vegetables. Then within a short time, I’d be harvesting vegetables from my new garden just like I’ve been doing.

The result of the recycling is back again

Awesome! At the end of the processes, the end product becomes healthy vegetables from the garden like the one above. I got them from my home garden for the family. I have so many other crops and vegetables in my home garden. Expect huge exposures from my home garden experience soon. In one of my coming articles, I’ll show you the update of this new garden; how I fished building it, how I fenced it, and how it is faring.

In conclusion

I told you how I rescued those my animal friends from being killed, how I’m taking care of them, and how they’re in return helping me to produce manure that I utilize in my garden. Isn’t that beautiful? I derive joy and happiness seeing those animals alive, seeing that they now consumes those broken crops and pills from my farms that used to be thrown away, and at the end, their excretion is used on my garden again for healthy crops.

My life has been about exploring life in some very special ways that so many people has refused, or rather finds difficult to see. Life could be sweet with having little in contentment.

Thanks for always coming around to read my articles, and to support my endeavors.

I cherish you a great deal.
Be safe.

What you're doing is growing organic crops, growing crops without chemical mixtures is a way very few people choose right now. The yield of their products may not be as good as those that use chemicals, but it will be much better than them in terms of taste and health. Your animal friends are very lucky, all living things would want such a life. Let the Coke come, I'm sure it will grow good products.

Recycling has a way of helping the ecosystem a lot as nothing is to be considered a waste given the natural selection of equal balance and protection of our very atmospheric condition and the earth as well. I've not been recycling but i'll try doing it after reading this great and lovely article of yours
