What is organic food?

In this presentation we highlight some of the basic differences (from the perspective of a home gardener), between conventional food (usually grown using pesticides) and organically grown food.

From our perspective, the choice seems pretty simple – it doesn’t make sense putting poison on anything that is intended for our plate and digestive systems. But for some reason, we’ve accepted this as a norm – that its the only way possible to feed ourselves.

Our choice and preference for home-grown, organic food is based on our experiences with food quality, and the benefits we believe that this approach brings. And our sense of quality is that the food that we consume should be chosen for flavour, nutrition and health – which is best achieved today by growing ourselves.
