Please view the video below of a farming operation that contributes to a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program in the Midwest. In this video, the lead farmer explains Biological Farming and why he has incorporated this method at his farm. Based on the video, please discuss:
video notes- please expand on following:
biological farming creates nutritionally dense produce
BALANCING THE ELEMENTS IN THE SOIL- MAKING SURE ALL THE ELEMENTS OF THE PERIODIC TABLE ARE IN THE SOIL
the use of fertalizer- fertalizer only has 3 elements ---therefor produces empty food
when food is empty it only contains simple sugars- not the nutrition that it could have -
reason for growing obisity- the produce we buy is empty
when we balance the chemistry in the SOIL we create nutritional density!!!!
always inquire: where and how food was grown. what kind of soil was used- the soil makes the difference-
interesting aspect is finding local farms that use biological farming..
Your opinion regarding the use of biological farming methods
The potential advantages and disadvantages of consuming vegetables grown by biological farming methods to the health of your clients/patients
How can biological farming methods be incorporated into your practice?
farmers markets- inquire about their method of growing food-
find local farms that use biological farming methods.

Biological Farming - Nutrition Name Institution Date Biological farming is increasingly preferred to improve food nutrition content, unlike farming that relies on fertilizers where the single crops dominate (Kawabe, 2013). Additionally, balancing farming methods enhance the soil with lower exposure to chemicals likely to affect the long-term productivity of the farms. By increasing the organic matter content in the soils the biological farming techniques are crucial to enhancing minerals balancing. The nutrition dense foods associated with biological farming are more pest resistance unlike conventional farming that requires continuous use of pest control chemicals. In any case, biological farming builds healthy soil
