NM is a holarchic human network of confidence based on autonomous individual fronts, the trust holons. The certification is a vote of confidence expressed by a human to human and registered by the central administration. The aim is to provide public information on food products produced with reduced destruction probability.
One way to deal with monoculturization of Earth is to consume and trade food grown in forests or in smaller areas in a nature-friendly way. The production on small scale in nature environment by personally known producers may not be the most efficient measure. However, it seems to be a simple common denominator for sustainability potential. People taking care of small production units embedded within nature are likely to be more careful, while nature benefits from diversity and there is a traceable human recommendation link.
The guarantor of the production mode of the Producer is always the Certifier. The Certifier is a traceable and identifiable human entrusted by the to emit certifications. If authorized by the Certification Board, the Certifier can open new holons and create new Certifiers in the chain of confidence.
The certification itself is based upon three pillars:
1. trust of the Certifier towards the Certified
2. production in polycultures or areas smaller than 1 are
3. general undisclosed commitment of the Certified to sustainability
This can be achieved through www.NoMonocultures.org certification. This certificate is a vote of confidence between humans, not a science-based rigorous process. NM does not compete with other existing certificates. It endorses and welcomes them. It is a different and an additional indicator of a complementary information. The principle of the mechanism is best described by the motto: "Ask Your Certifier".
