Organic Life

 

Stories from the farm

A closer look at the people, the place and the bio-diversity at 5EyesFarm

The goal of organic life is to bring health and well-being to every aspect, decision, approach and outcome we undertake. It is  challenging but worthwhile and exciting seeing something different emerge – something a bit more resilient than our old consumer mindset.

 

 

At 5EyesFarm organic production extends past growing productive gardens. The Aquaponics – an exciting system- is organic. The animal farm and its processes, feeds and systems are organic too. The processes of raising insects; the medicinal garden, as well as fruit and herbs, teas and spices, are all organically grown.

We would like to think that the kitchen is organic and most of its processes fit the bill as well as all that we dry and store and seal and contain.

It’s a whole system – literally holistic system. From the buildings and infrastructure to the composts, ferments and natural deterrents we try to integrate based on practiced values, principles and unified approaches.

Organic gardening is not about just substituting toxic chemicals with less toxic ones, but about a whole different way of thinking and working. It is a conscious effort to cooperate with nature in the creation of health and abundance for all.

Growing Organic

We discover a whole new level of life when we start growing organic foods. At first it’s just about the seedlings, the plants growing and the wonder of it all transforming before our eyes. The more we get involved with our garden the more we see the soil, the patterns of the weather, the life of microbes and insects and sun and water all working together. To make a good, long lasting garden takes a bit of establishing work. Once the structure is created, the process becomes creative. We have entered a new game, a new meditation, a new set of growing and reflecting that is echoed and enhanced by the very food we will eat. And we soon notice that the smell, the feel and taste of organic food is so much better than anything else.
