Seeds, lobby and bio-diversity
Organic gardening, to eat only what you produce, for pleasure to pick some tomatoes from your balcony, some parsley from a pot, to smell a salad grown in your garden, to share a moment full of future with a child, to share, gather, pies and jams with friends, to relax and savour the perfumes of the earth and the flowers which live on their own rythmn.
Each gardener plants and sows depending the weather and the ground where he lives. The organic gardener ask for more exigency. To keep rain water to sprinckle. Don’t use chemicals but associated cultures or the help given spontaneously by nature. If you see a field you don’t see only one kind of plant. The plants help or struggle againt themselves. If you combine the appropriate plants, they give protection and strength to each other. Garlic is good near roses, fruits trees and tomatoes but bad near peas and beans. Your roses are full with plant-lice. Great! The lady-bugs will be very happy. Don’t put any chemicals, lady-bugs will work for you, eat all of them and be in good health to make a lot of baby lady-bugs which will continue on this way.
The organic gardener does not cultivate always the same plant in the same place. He changes plant and places. He protects the ground from the rain, the wind and the sun putting grass cuttings, straw … which are full of maggots. All the rest coming from the kitchen from organic fruits, vegetables, eggs shells are good for the compost. So he don’t need to use any chemical fertilizers. He preserves bio–diversity by using traditional seeds of fruits and vegetables. It seems to be clear that an organic gardener did’nt fall in love with GMO!
