Back when human kind roamed the earth as “hunter gatherers” there were no artificial pesticides, herbicides or fertilisers. Life wasn’t easy by any means but what food they did hunt or find was far healthier for them than much of the food we consume today. The organic revolution that is sweeping the world today promotes a return to the nutritional practices that our bodies were designed to utilise.
Our body is only one of the beneficiaries from organic nutrition. The environment is as critical to us as our own bodies. The environment has been effected detrimentally for many years from artificial chemicals used in agriculture and horticulture. Anything we can do as individuals to minimise this degradation must be good for the planet. Organic farmers work with nature to build and replenish the nutrients in the soil through crop rotation, composting and cultivation.
Organic farming truly is “as nature intended”.
