Veganic Farming – The Proof is in the Harvest!

  • 2 of 6

Our first garden is the closest to the community center, as it contains our salad greens and all the veggies we harvest on a daily basis.

Here we planted an abundant variety of greens for green smoothies, salads and steams, as well as herbs such as parsley, basil and dill, and our very own celery, which is a real treat when it’s veganically home-grown. We also have some half-rows of sweet onions, peas, beans, carrots, beets and tomatoes.

Handy Hint:

* Interplant marigolds with your tomatoes or peppers to help repel pests and disease from the plants (especially nematodes in the soil). As well as being great companion plants that break up the soil with their roots, they add vibrant beauty to your garden!

so, if someone rescued cows and horses and they lived in a peaceful, sanctuary it is wrong to exploit them as poop machines?
