We thought this was an appropriate month to focus on soil and organic agriculture, as one of our guiding principles at Cafe UBUNTU and UBUNTU Farm is "earth care". So in honor of Earth Day, we will continue the discussion about how we do our best to ensure that we exercise healthy stewardship of our land, so that we can be healthy stewards of our bodies through the food that we eat.
So why organic?
Here are a few reasons why we practice organic agriculture on our land, to produce the the food we use in Cafe.
1. Increased nutrient density. Healthier soil means healthier food! 2. No contamination from pesticides! 3. No synthetic hormones, antibiotics, or GMOs! 4. Restores ecological balance into the local environment.
Take a look at this short video to get a better idea of why organic farming is, well....just better!
