Benefits of nature farming
Nature farming is about committing to an organic agriculture change and promoting the natural power of soil health. It’s about harmonizing with nature and allowing the ecosystem to take care of and prepare your growing environment, rather than relying on synthetic fertilizers or unwanted chemicals.
Let's take a closer look at some of the unique benefits of committing to this healthier, more sustainable, high performance approach to farming.
Reduce chemicals and pesticides
Chemicals and pesticides not only harm the food we eat or put into our bodies: but the world around us. When too many toxins are in our soils, our soil isn’t able to grow a natural tolerance to diseases and unwanted pests which can directly impact humanity, climate change, soil health, and the water supply.
Produce safe and nutritious food
This type of ideal agricultural practice promotes higher quality food for everyone. With the elimination of pesticides and chemicals from the foods we eat, we can maintain production and quality while increasing human health and ingest safer, healthier foods altogether.
Biodiversity is essential to a thriving, healthy ecosystem. It helps your farming and soil stay resilient against outside effects. When you allow your soil to run nature's course and grow a tolerance against the negative effects of the outside world, your soil will slowly grow stronger and more nutrient-filled over time.
Positive effects on water
Nature farming adds extra emphasis on creating and building sustainable, healthy soil and mulch for plants to thrive in. However, with this style of farming, less is more. As the soil grows more sustainable over time, the process requires less irrigation and less water. Nature farming also helps preserve water health and reduce toxic or chemical-filled water runoff from affecting our water supply or the ocean.
Making the change towards nature farming can have positive benefits for generations to come.
Offset soil health erosion
The continuous use of unwanted pesticides and chemicals can have a long-lasting, damaging effect on the soil that your plants and food are growing in. Nature farming allows your soil to thrive and build itself on its own, creating healthier soil over time. When your soil isn’t being treated with daily unwanted chemicals, it can house more helpful bacteria and add more nutrients back into your garden. In fact, it is said that one teaspoon of healthy, nutrient-filled soil
houses more microorganisms than there are people on earth.
