Varied internet articles about veganic agriculture.
Farmers and gardeners are key to the growth of the veganics movement. Whether you already grow veganically, would like to transition, or are simply interested in learning more, there are many ways to get involved.
As a consumer, there are many ways that you can further the veganic movement. In fact, it is often consumer support that enables small farms to practice veganic agriculture.
Animal-based fertilizers, like manure and blood meal, often come from animals that were not raised organically. They may have been exposed to chemicals, GMO feed, hormones, and antibiotics. Veganic growers can maintain fertility on their own holding using completely organic plant-based techniques, ensuring that the entire cycle of agriculture is 100% organic.
Supporting local veganic farmers not only helps to reduce your ecological footprint, it also creates a viable livelihood for the farmers, and it responds to the problems surrounding globalized agriculture.
