Organic farming benefits farmers (profit, self-sufficiency, soil health) and consumers (healthy, natural, sustainable).

Practice Crop Rotation

Crop rotation in organic farming prevents soil depletion and pests, improves soil health. Legumes, corn, veggies, grasses, flowers.

Beneficial Insects.

Beneficial insects are introduced to the garden through cover crops and flowers for pollinators. Clover, buckwheat, yarrow, dill.

Apply Biological Controls for Pests

Biological pest control methods: nematodes, natural predators, botanical insecticides. No chemical pesticides.

Don’t Forget Cover Cropping

Cover crops improve soil health, provide nutrients, reduce erosion. Plan carefully - use legumes and grasses.

Use No-Till Farming

No-till planting: no soil disturbance, less herbicides/pesticides, retains moisture, less machinery. Converts to organic.
