Why Organic?

What is Organic farming?
From Suite 101, written by Deborah Turton
Organic farming is a type of farming that uses no synthetic pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers. An organic farmer aims to create a healthy, balanced soil, which supports many creatures such as beetles, worms, grubs, bacteria, fungi, rotifers, etc. Organic farming also aims to create a habitat that supports many different creatures above ground such as snakes, toads, birds, and insects. The healthy soil together with the healthy habitat should lead to healthy, productive plants.
