35 farmers joined us in Trio Village to learn about gardening. Some important considerations for gardening include orienting beds north to south, having access to water, planting oregano and other plants among crops and using brightly colored flowers or fabrics around garden to deter pests, sourcing high quality seeds and utilizing compost. 🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱 This is one of the agroecology training sessions provided to farmers in southern Belize by Professor Ruben of Universidad Pinar del Rio, Cuba. Agroecology looks at understanding and linking climate smart farming practices with the protection of nature. 🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱 #gardening #organicgardening #organicfarming #southernBelize #Belize #healthyfood #organicproduce #agroecology #climatesmartfarming #nature #agriculture #Cuba #CubaBelize #garden #mayagoldenlandscape
Why should you go organic Eating organically grown food is the only way to avoid the cocktail of chemical poisons present in commercially grown foods. More than 600 active chemicals are registered for agricultural use in America, and the average application equates to about 16 pounds of chemical pesticides per person every year. Still, the National Academy of Sciences reports that 90% of the chemicals applied to foods have not been tested for long-term health effects before deemded “safe”. Organic agriculture procedures only involve natural resources like neem, a natural pesticide and fertilizer that protects your health and the environment. Visit NEEM.world to learn more about how neem can be used in organic agriculture!
🙏fresh indigo dyeing season is almost upon us and I’m so excited. 💙🌿🌱With (almost) all of the snow melted now I’m planning to plant my woad seeds by May 15th and to start harvesting by July 15th and aiming to extract and dry as much woad and Japanese indigo as I can. If it goes as planned, I’ll be looking for an even larger garden farm space next season 🙃
Well hello, little ones! These little babies love grazing our fields. They are super friendly - come visit them and give them some love! 💚👩🌾👨🌾 #ilovegramenfarm #gramenfarm
Knowing the story of my food is incredibly important to me. The origin, harvester, and how it reached my hands. That’s why my squad goes to @ygfarmersmarket & other conscious companies for our nutrients & wellbeing.
Can’t wait for our next adventure @flowwithaj @loganskees
We are celebrating spring today with sunny skies and warm temperatures!
Such a fun (and not to mention delicious!) evening last night for the @meatboxbristol & @wbwappingwharf steak🥩 & beer🍻 pairing! Being able to watch Chris’ butchery skills on the local, organic & ethically well raised meat from just down the road at the Story Farm made it taste that much better too! They are planning on doing more of these demos & tastings so keep your 👀’s out for details!🐮
