Organic growing lets the soil recuperate, encouraging biodiversity which is crucial for healthy soil. If we want our land to continue feeding us and our families for years to come than Organic is the choice we need to make today.
We grow weeds! Organic farming avoids the use of pesticides and herbicides that can affect our health, soil biodiversity, waterways, and wildlife – including the bees. Without pesticides our weeds grow freely with our harvest, encouraging native flora and fauna to keep doing its thing, as nature intended.
We love food waste! Well, we don’t love it, but our crops do. We use food scraps (compost) as part of the nutrition program on our farms and put food waste to good use.
We’re getting dirty! We believe soil is the solution to many of the environmental issues we face today. The use of chemicals on farms causes soil degradation which in dryland areas can manifest as desertification. We keep it all natural which helps to build and restore the health of our soil.
