Basic Principles of Organic Lawn Care

As a proud member of the Northeast Organic Farming Association (NOFA), we subscribe to their principles, which inform what we do with every customer. 

Basic Principles of Organic Lawn Care

  1. Principle of health. Organic land care should sustain and enhance the health of soil, water, air, plant, animal, human, and planet as one and indivisible.
  2. Principle of ecology. Organic land care should be based on ecological systems and
    cycles and should work with them, emulate them, and help sustain them.
  3. Principle of care. Organic land care should be managed in a precautionary and
    responsible manner to protect the health and well-being of current and future generations
    and the environment.
  4. Principle of fairness. Organic land care should build on relationships that ensure
    fairness with regard to the common environment and life opportunities. Fairness
    is characterized by equity, respect, justice, and stewardship of the shared world, both
    among people and in their relationships to other living beings.

What Heidelberg Farms loves about these principles is that they demonstrate clearly that organic lawn care is much more than a program. It is a way of life and a way of looking at the world.

All too often, people tend to forget how dependent we are not only on one another, but on the environment. Everything–trees, people, insects, animals, the soil food web under out feet–is connected in a vast web. When we make decisions that compromise any part of that delicate, but self-sustaining web, we ultimately compromise ourselves.
