Why Go Organic
Organic farming is growing crops without chemical fertilisers and pesticides. If you add another layer of meaning to it, then, it’s also multi-cropping. That is, when you grow multiple crops so that the soil doesn’t drain of one type of nutrients. Growing a variety of crops also manages pests better. It’s the only sustainable way forward.
The philosophy of organic farming goes beyond just feeding people. It’s about preserving the earth – the earth as a whole that also includes dust, that is, soil – for future generations.
The long-term benefits of eating organic produce are huge. Among them are –
- Better health,
- Better nutrition,
- Less illness,
- Stronger immunity,
- Rehabilitated soil,
- More money for farmers so that the next generation remains in agriculture, and also
- The wisdom of farming is passed on.
Currently, the perception is that organic food is a niche and restricted to consumers in the higher economic bracket. However, it’s actually a lack of consciousness that is creating the roadblock between people and organic food.
Consuming chemically produced food is harming us, and it’s harming our nature.
The connection of humans with nature runs deep, so deep that it nurtures us how we nurture it. If we want to prevent the Earth from looming, irreversible damage, then we must live organically.
And to live organically is to live in harmony with nature.
