Jody Scheckter, ex Formula 1 champion, has created one of the UK’s largest and most successful organic farms. Jody explains the fundamentals of organic farming, why healthy soil is so important and how farming naturally really does produce the tastiest and healthiest food.
An easy recipe using organic ingredients to nurture and soften skin. This face mask is made from two ingredients found in every kitchen. Try it and you’ll love it.
Healthy, fresh organic food free from chemicals and synthetic residues is the priority. Whether you’ve grown it yourself or joined a CSA scheme or have it delivered from a local box company, organic food means you are supporting your health and that of the planet in the best way possible.
Christmas puddings make excellent presents for friends and family, and the amount of pudding this recipe makes will give you enough to make three decent sized ones. Every ingredient can be sourced as an organic ingredient including the brandy.
If you do decide to go for a real Christmas tree, it’s worth looking for trees that come from a sustainable forest. This means every time a tree is cut down, another will be replanted in its place.
All the detractors of organic farming methods, all the people who say organic food is too expensive, and all those who say there isn’t enough space to grow the amount of food we need should watch this.
We don’t always need to buy brand new clothes. The manufacturing processes behind high street fashion takes a tremendous toll on the earth’s resources, not least because the resulting pollution from pesticides, bleaches and dyes is immense.
Conventional hair dyes are potentially dangerous and contain toxic ingredients. Avoid these. More and more companies are looking to provide natural and organic hair colouring alternatives, it’s just a question of finding them.
If you eat meat and dairy (cheese, yogurt, milk, butter) always, always make sure they are organic. The reason for this is bio-accumulation. In short, pesticide residues accumulate in animals.
Some of the largest farms are abusing the organic ethos for profit. Their eggs may carry an organic logo, but it is a travesty that the eggs from these sort of places are certified organic.
