La Tierra Verde
Organic vegetables, fresh herbs and farm eggs
Organic market garden
What does it mean?
Organic farming means vegetable and/or livestock production
using natural sources of nutrients (such as compost,
crop residues and manure) and natural methods of pest and
weed control instead of using synthetic or inorganic
agrochemicals. In organic farming we try to find a natural
balance between production and our natural environment.
Why organic farming?
In conventional agriculture the use of synthetic and inorganic agro
chemicals is high. This leaves residues in the vegetables we eat,
threatening our health in the long run. Besides our health, the fabrication
and use of agro- chemicals pollute our natural environment.
Organic product are healt hier and do not damage the environment.
Organic farming methods
Off course an organic market garden needs certain inputs in order to produce.
For the maintenance of the soil fertility I use compost, made from the
residues of the garden, manure from chickens, sheep or horses.
To strengthen the crops and increase the resistance against pests I use
concentrates of algae that are applied foliar.
To protect the crops against harmful insect, there are many natural
crop protection methods, for example, crop rotation and companion cropping,
but also infusions from garlic and hot peppers keep away most insects.
Common vinegar helps to prevent fungus and bacteria.
