Is Organic Farming Good For The Environment?
It is a very interesting question, and one which most people with instantly answers with a Yes.
We assume that something labelled as organic, is better for us so must be better forthe environment too. Sales of organic labelled foods were close to $50billion in 2019, showing a large trend of consumers looking for such options.
I love working with clients who have set up businesses which aim to be more sustainable after identifying issues with current practices in their market. With farming, though a product is organic, pesticides may be used. Yes, they are from natural sources but they still impact the soil.
I recently learnt about the theory of permaculture which looks at putting certain plants together where they can feed off each others nutrients.
