ORGANIC

Taking it ino1
Fresh, green, healthy, organically-grown food; these are just some of the words that come to mind when we hear the word “organic.” Some of us can see life and interest along with this word yet to some it comes boring, tasteless and/or even irrelevant. To build up some insights let’s check first what really this Organic thingy is all about.

Digging deeper
According to our trusted friend (the dictionary) organic have different meanings according to where or how it is used; let’s use the one that pertains to food. Organic: of, relating to, yielding, or involving the use of food produced with the use of feed or fertilizer of plant or animal origin without employment of chemically formulated fertilizers, growth stimulants, antibiotics, or pesticides. Basing on the given description, organic farming is about food products that are produced through an organic process, which is free from any artificial pesticides, fertilizers or any other chemicals used in a conventional farming.
Taking a rain check?
We now somehow have an insight to what this organic produce is all about, so, what now? What do we need to check before jumping in to it and adding to the line of people who have chosen to live life eating organic food products? First we have to check our preferences with the things that this line of food can offer.
One may ask, “how about the taste?” Well, we can only say that this will depend on each person’s taste buds since we have different preferences. To those who are used to dishes with strong flavors, they may find this insufficient to their palate, but with a little push through weighing between the benefits and the down side to it, it may actually work. Taste can be adjusted depending on the drive or desire of a person and the desired outcome. In one way or another we all have our “getting-used-to-it moments” and this may be just one of those.
Let’s go on with the price tag that comes along with it. In this, we may find it a little higher than the usual produce and this is because of the labor and process that comes into it. Prices for the produce of conventional farming are lower, because the process has been streamlined into a cost-effective level. Since commercial production nowadays is more systematized and automated, it brings the expenses to a competitive level, which requires lesser manpower that is directly proportional to payouts.
More for the Environment

o2Enough about us, let’s talk about what’s in it for our environment or the things beyond ourselves. First, by choosing to patronize foods from organic farming lessens the pollution from chemicals that has its effect on air, water, soil and most importantly our bodies. By lessening the pollution we are actually safeguarding the future generations from all the possible irreversible damages or effects that chemicals may spew into our mother earth. We have witnessed a lot of catastrophe due to the damages our mother nature have incurred from us and by then, we should have already decided to take part in making a difference.
Be an agent of change; go beyond the wrong pattern and mindset that has been cultivated from generation to generations. Make a stand, small things accumulated will have a monumental impact that can echo even beyond a lifetime.
