Why Organic

Re-establishing relationship with soil

 

Organic Farming is a phenomenon that has captured the imagination of people across the globe. Millions of people right from high-profile corporate honchos to eco-sensibleurbanites to large-scale communities, all have taken to organic farming at variouslevels.
Some do it as a passion, some as a weekend activity, some as a means to earn a living and some as a relentless drive towards a greener earth.

Organic farming, in simple terms, follows agricultural principles that rely on natural systems and inputs to keep the soil healthy in order to keep plants and surroundings healthy.

Many believe, organic farming is far superior to modern systems when it comes to building, maintaining and replenishing the health of the soil. When one considers, energy usage, and human health, it’s clear that organic farming is more sustainable.

Breaking away from the modern farming protocols, this system of farming adopts the most environment-friendly and professional way of cultivation. Renewable power generation, water harvesting and conservation, expert supervision with a processdriven approach, incentivized employment of workforce with proper growth ladder and expansive knowledge pool, all contribute to make it a more viable farming option for many.

It also has some fundamental effects on our personal health as well as the overall health of the planet. This system of farming helps in many ways.

Keeping chemicals out of air, water, soil and our bodies:

Organic farming and food promote a less toxic environment for all living things. Since the usage of pesticides and other toxic materials practically does not exist and a more nature-aided approach is adopted, the air, water and soil thrives in a cleaner environment, which in turn is reflected in the produce and also the health of the people who consume

Reducing off-farm pollution:

Modern agriculture, due to heavy usage of pesticides and synthetic fertilizers, not only singularly pollute the farmland and farm workers, but also the environmental downstream. Pesticide drifts affects non-farm communities with odorless and invisible poisons. Delicate environments are more susceptible to such toxic attacks without the knowledge of its inhabitants. With organic farming such off-farm pollution can be avoided straight away.

Protecting future generations:

Studies show that infants are exposed to hundreds of harmful chemicals even before they are born. As we face the drastic after-effects of generations of exposure to agricultural chemicals, we can protect our future generations by supporting organic farming and its products.

Building healthy soil:

Mono-cropping and chemical fertilizer dependency has taken a toll with heavy loss of top soil. Added to this is an equally disturbing loss of micronutrients and minerals in fruits and vegetables. Feeding the soil with organic matter instead of synthetic fertilizers has proven to increase nutrients in produce, with higher levels of vitamins and minerals

Making food taste yummier:

Research shows that food tastes better when raised in harmony with the nature. Organic food is all about tastes in sync with the nature. Also, research verifies that organic food is often lower in nitrates and higher in antioxidants. So, apart from all its healthy benefits, organic food also tastes good, which is truly, a cherry on the top.

Promoting bio-diversity:

An organic farm is like reforestation. They are thriving with diverse habitats for various animal, bird and insect groups. Indigenous animals and birds find them a safe haven while beneficial insects allow for greater balance. Thus, a healthy combination of inhabitant groups ensure constant connection with the buzz of the nature.

Celebrating the culture of agriculture:

Food is a ‘language’ spoken in every culture. Making this language organic allows for an important cultural revolution whereby diversity and biodiversity are embraced and chemical toxins and environmental harm are radically reduced. The simple act of saving one seed from extinction could be an act of biological and cultural conservation.
