We hear it all the time. What does organic really mean?
At Heidelberg Farms, it starts with basic principles, which have been codified by the Northeast Organic Farming Association (NOFA) of which we are a part.
Basic Principles of Organic Lawn Care
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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
The themes that jumps out at us are fairness and caring. We are not selling a product. We are trying to care for the world, you, and your loves ones. In defining organic, we like to think that it marries the heart with science and biology. There is a method to what organic landscapers do.
