Organic farming is simply a way of growing food that is in harmony with nature. Soil is the basis for growing any crop, and as a plant grows it draws nutrients from the soil in order to grow and produce fruit. In organic farming these nutrients are returned to the soil by means of green manure, crop rotation, and generous amounts of organic matter such as compost. Farming is done in such a way so that the soil is constantly improved.
As the optimal growing conditions are provided for crops through organic farming, they are rarely affected by pests and diseases. Plants are not prone to diseases if not exposed to harmful chemicals and environmental conditions that negatively impact and weaken their immune systems.Their immune systems are actually strengthened by providing a natural organic diet. It is the same with the human body. As organic food is far more nutritious than food grown with chemicals, those who eat it develop healthy bodies with strong immune systems, and are therefore much less affected by the diseases that much of the population suffers from today. So as the plants are given a natural environment on which to thrive, the human body is given natural food through which it will be healthy.
Organic farming is in harmony with nature. Organic is a way of life. So why not give your family the gift of good health and good conscience and start eating organic food today.
