Fight Back Against Monsanto GMO Food with Your Own Organic Garden

How can we put our trust in Monsanto − a company specializing in poison and political manipulation − to make our food? We have become disconnected from our environment by putting too much trust in biotech companies, big agriculture, and big food corporations over the last 50 years. All the while we’ve relied on government agencies to protect our interests. Sadly, it’s become readily apparent that this approach to food isn’t working.

The current spike in chronic disease, including cancer and obesity, is our last chance wake-up call to reverse the devastating effects of the Monsanto GMO monopoly on our food. The whole earth groans from the abuse of corporate greed and time is running out. We must make a change… our health and the health of our planet depends on it!

Is Organic Gardening the Answer to Monsanto GMO?

The easiest option to ensure you’re not eating genetically modified foods (aka “frankenfoods”) created by big biotech companies such as Monsanto is to grow or purchase organic food. Organic food by definition is not genetically modified and generally uses far less pesticides than conventionally-grown produce.

However, there’s more to organic farming than meets the eye. And how do you know if your food is really organic? Check out the following tips from an organic farmer on how to connect with your food source and even grow organic produce yourself.

The People's Garden at the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Washington D.C., on Thursday, March 17, 2011. Volunteer executive master gardeners pitch in several times a week, at various times of the day (before or after work hours, or during lunchtime) to weed, mulch, plant, water and what ever it takes to grow a wide variety of produce. Although a few are ornamental, most are destined for charity kitchens.  Located on the corner of Jefferson Dr. SW and 12th St. SW, people often stop to ask questions about the garden.  Part of the volunteersÕ training is to be a spokes person for the People's Garden Initiative, an effort by the USDA that challenges its employees to establish People's Gardens at USDA facilities worldwide or help communities create gardens. People's Gardens vary in size and type, but all have a common purpose - to help the community they're within and the environment. USDA photo by Lance Cheung

Nir farms a two hectare field (approx 5 acres) in the southern Galilee region of Israel. He has some unique insights on growing strong, nutritious, vibrant plants in rich fertile soil that can be applied to home gardens. After all, if your food isn’t healthy… your body won’t be either.

3 Steps for Connecting With Your Food Supply

Step #1 – The first thing is to reconnect with nature. Spend some time in the forest, in the wild meadows, by rivers and oceans, and notice the nature. Listen and watch to see what is going on so you can recognize the norm for living things. This helps to prepare your mind and attitude to appreciate the earth. We live with nature. Therefore it is vital to remember how to respect and enjoy it so we can get the best from it.

Step #2 – Learn about the plants that grow naturally in your region. In reference to gardening or farming, find out the season for the plants that are edible for humans and animals.

Step #3 – Then find local farmers that are not using pesticides or herbicides and get your fruits and vegetables directly from them (tip: search online for Community Supported Agriculture + your area). If you can’t get everything you need directly from the farmer, then use the farmers markets and the organic section of grocery stores.Always buy produce that’s as fresh as possible.

Tips for Growing an Organic Garden

If you have space in your yard for a garden, here are some tips from Nir on growing organic crops. You can apply these farming principles to your own organic garden.

Prepare the soil bit by bit – don’t expect to have everything perfect all at once. It takes years to make a really good field or garden. Like a fine wine, the longer it matures, the better. Keep adding organic matter to a compost pile away from the growing area so the bugs can do their work without interfering with the vegetables. Then add this compost after a year of maturation to your field/garden.

Give and take – for everything you take from the soil you have to give back. Rotate your plots and grow winter manure crops that you plow under in the spring for the purpose of enriching your soil.

Don’t grow the same intensity of vegetables in the same plot each season – grow less demanding vegetables after you grow demanding ones. Also grow soil enriching crops in between demanding crops.

It is not necessary to spray organic pesticides when you get into the seasonal rhythms – plants grown in their season are equipped to fight disease, repel insects, and resist the weather. Example: a fall crop grown in the summer is going to spend all its energy trying to survive. The pests sense this and come to devour the plant.
