Alternatives that contribute to the whole
Imagine a world where going shopping meant a trip to a beautiful sustainable farm. One that is giving back to the earth just as much as it is taking. Where your children get to pick their own veg and see the process from field to plate.
This can be your reality and we can show you how.
Biochar – a process to trap carbon and replenish the soil.
Adding biochar, a fine-grained charcoal, to garden soil replenishes nutrients, retains moisture and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
Biodynamic – spiritual approach/uses nature and the astrological cycle
Permaculture – holistic/living in harmony with nature. 3 ethics, earth care, people care and fair shares. Its a lifestyle rather then just a gardening method.
Regenerative Farming Practices
Mycorrhizal networks are right beneath us under the ground, they are created by fungi that connect individual plants together and transfer water, carbon,nitrogen and other nutrients and minerals.
This network has been dubbed the “woodwide web,” as it is through the mycelium that trees connect and communicate with each other. Adding biochar, a fine-grained charcoal, to garden soil replenishes nutrients, retains moisture and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
It certainly did the business in the Amazon, where indigenous people traditionally used biochar to create wonderfully rich, deep black soils (Terra preta) near their settlements
